Cork is one of the most dynamic city on the Irish island. Art galleries stand side-by-side with traditional pubs and historic buildings, towering over fashionable cafes, within its compact centre. Cork is considered the gastronomic capital of Ireland. The best asset of this culinary tradition is the English Market, an indoor market dating back to 1788, a real Victorian diamond and national treasure. Inside, dozens of stalls offer the best local product. You can’t leave Cork without climbing the 132 steps of the tower of St. Anne’s Church, an eighteenth-century church overlooking the historical and picturesque district of Shandon. Aspiring bell-ringers can also have a go at playing the famous Shandon Bells!
Not far from Cork, is the picturesque village of Cobh.With its pretty multicoloured houses on the waterfront, it is the last port stop of the famous Titanic. Cobh maintains an important marine and Irish emigration history.
Cork is also the perfect starting point for exploring the Wild Atlantic Way. Head over to West Cork, known around the world for its wild beaches and rugged peninsulas, as well as its Cape Clear and Sherkin islands, where Gaelic is still spoken today.
Fly to Cork and set off on your discovery of the most authentic Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way! It will be a holiday you’ll never forget!
