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.

This is a narrow ordinary street linking the main street (Patrick Street) with Paul Street. There are many small shops and restaurants in the area, but nothing special. A street is a street!

Paul street is a unique little street with quirky little shops as well as a large shopping centre. What makes Paul Street special is the lovely little streets that link to it. They are chocful of gorgeous little restaurants that offer superb quality and value. It's mainly pedestrianised so makes for a great shopping and dining experience.

Lots of nice places to eat from off of the different various side streets. Some nice shops, more budget friendly. Good car park. Meet up point for teenagers.

Paul Street is an excellent place to go to avoid the run of the mill chains, there are many independent shops selling everything from shoes to toys, and even more interesting shops in the streets off Paul Street. Some of the oldest retailers in the city such as Pinocchio's Toy shop, 30 years and still selling a wonderful collection of... More

Paul Street is one of the oldest & perhaps quirkiest streets in Cork. Over the years it has seen many reinventions. Right now it's a pedestrian street full of interesting & quirky shops & coffee shops. Well worth a visit

A central part of cork with unique shops and places to eat. Set in a very historical part of Cork and very close to the major shopping areas, however you wont need to go much further than here as there are many independent boutiques and bookshops in the area. Nice place to walk around on a spring morning as its... More
