  • If you are a Rory Gallagher fan - and I have been since about 1966 - this is a must visit - a pilgrimage in fact. It didn't disappoint.  more »
  • Rory Gallagher's grave is located on the St. Oliver's cemetery outside of Cork. Due to the Golden Tomb sculpture, the otherwise relatively unadorned Tomb between all the other graves is quick to find.

  • The parking is excellent and Rory's grave is quite near my uncle and aunt look out for other non cork folk!  more »

Where to stay in Cork

A destination in and of itself, Cork City has a dense center with plenty of hotels and hostels. Head north of the city center for affordable options like mid-range hotels and guesthouses. From here, you can walk or bike to all of the sights in the heart of the city. If everything is booked, or if you've simply come to explore the city's surrounding nature, check out the campgrounds about ten minutes from the center of town by car. There are also a number of charming bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and other pensions in the outskirts, which can be a good option if you're using the city as a base for exploring the sights of Cork County.
