It has easy access to a small 'shopping centre', with stores; tesco, barbers, hairdressers, o'briens, shoe repairs, phone services, sky etc. Outside of that you have brilliant pubs, and restaurants...

Good self-guided walking tour even in rainy weather, which I experienced. Just take your umbrella or raincoat and keep walking. The rain didn't deter any of the locals. At... More

Paul street is a great place to browse around when you are in town. The shopping centre and car park are very handy. The selection of restaurants are great and seem to be always busy. On a recent visit with my Daughter and grandson we decided to have breakfast out. We were too late for Amicus or the new weatherspoons... More

I will concentrate mainly on one church. Built by Fr Murphy (former Indian chief.!) to the highest standards of the time. The architecture and the extraordinary woodwork is amazing. Do pay at least a brief visit.

Good car park, cheaper than merchants quay car park, although the spaces are tighter. Central location. The shopping centre here isn't great, but outside of the shopping centre are fantastic places to go eat and shop.

There are so many places to shop and eat here. Three of us had fun wandering enjoying the sights and the street music. It was a safe place for 3 women traveling alone. Cork is a pretty part of the country with plenty of public transportation to get you around.
