What were cork country council thinking when they spoiled cork city with terrible ugly street lights. There just awful. Cork city has gone down a lot, last time I was there was years ago, it's disappointing now. Shabby buildings, the banks of the river are overgrown with weeds, cigarettes buds everywhere, broken pavement tiles or missing

St Patrick Street needs less cars and more restaurants and cafes. People parking at crossings, on footpaths and everywhere really ruins the experience. Some great businesses off the main street but not very attractive at the moment.

Hideous looking street lighting that looks like it came out of the bargain bin at Lidl and cheap paving slabs that are horrendously slippy when wet.
A handful of nice buildings, the ones that aren't defaced by modern additions or lying derelict or closed.
Some local businesses worth supporting that haven't been killed off by City Hall rates that is.

There is all options of stores, from small and boutiques to departamental stores from a lot of chains.

Plenty options of restaurants, bars, and sweet options.

Nothing special at all, better shopping in Dublin, run of the mill street in a regional city. Nice escape from London though

St Patrick St is usually called "Patrick St" or "Pana" by Cork natives and is the main artery of Cork city. It is lined by many shops including Debenhams (formerly Roches stores), Marks & Spencer, Brown Thomas, Penneys etc.

Cork city centre is wonderful for shopping because the main shopping areas are directly adjacent to each other including Patrick St and the award winning Oliver Plunkett St as well as the many other streets which run between them or run off them into such parts of the city centre as the Huguenot area etc.

Apart from shopping, Patrick St has a lot of history associated with it. It is the location of the Victoria hotel. Although many know that Thurles hosted the first meeting of the newly established GAA, not everyone realises that the second meeting was held in the Victoria Hotel on Patrick St in Cork city.

Other famous people who stayed in the same hotel include Charles Stuart Parnell (who gave a speech from there); James Joyce (who mentioned it in one of his novels); Michael Collins, the Irish hero and also Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister.

Geographically speaking, Patrick St was once a waterway and became a road which follows the natural route where the water once flowed.

An imposing statue of the Capuchin named Fr Matthew, stands on Patrick St, across from St Patrick's Bridge. He established an organisation which promoted a teetotal lifestyle and is remembered today for the good that he did.

Pana as it's known to the locals has lost a lot of its character since the invasion of the large British dept. stores during the height of the Celtic Tiger. After being redesigned by Spanish urban architect Beth Gali, it certainly has a unique look and the broad boulevards are amenable to shoppers, buskers and browsers but for a better taste of Cork go to Oliver Plunkett St. which is still dominated by small family businesses for shopping or up around the Hugenot Quarter for dining.

Patrick Street curves through the centre of Cork City, and it's easy to find anything you're likely to need on or near to Patrick Street.

A wide curving street of shops and restaurants that stretches from one arm of the River Lee to the other. There are several pedestrianised side streets of shops - some very original and uniquely Irish - which lead to the other main shopping street, Oliver Plunkett Street.
