  • Not bad, but we expected much better. The street is rather pretty, certainly, but as thousands of others. And the quality of shopping leaves to be desired. Disappointing.

  • I spent a lot of time here when I was in Cork. I was very impressed with all the different shops on the road. Go into the off streets as well!  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.
