Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by the city’s friendly Corkonians, and you’ll probably be invited in for a bite to eat, you can’t beat that Irish hospitality!
After you’ve checked into your Cork hotel, you can visit Blarney Castle, just eight kilometres from the city. Budding writers take note, you’ll find the Blarney Stone, also known as the Stone of Eloquence. Just hold on to the iron railing, lean back, and put your lips to the stone and you’ll be blessed with perfect articulation for the rest of your life. Think of the photos you’ll be able to post to your Facebook page.
St Fin Barre’s cathedral is also worth a look- if only to stand in awe at the gorgeous gothic façade. Here with the kids? Take them to the Fota Wildlife Park, an open range zoo with giraffes, bison and even kangaroos.
And you won’t need any extra luck in Cork, just your credit card! As it’s packed with shops, restaurants and markets to tempt your wallet. Cork’s foodie reputation is stellar, with the English Market a favourite. Stay a week here and your tight-fitting jeans will soon remind you why Cork is Ireland’s champion of fine food and drink.
You can get here by catching a flight from Dublin, or by driving down the N8 motorway for three hours. So book a Cork hotel with us - we know you’ll love it.
