One of the country's major artistic and cultural centers, famed for its many annual festivals, Cork straddles the Lee River and boasts over 30 bridges.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre and Kinsale Crystal. Charles Fort and Blarney Castle & Gardens will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cork: Garnish Island (in Glengarriff), Killarney National Park (in Killarney) and Kinsale (Aunty Nellie's Sweet Shop Kinsale, Giles Norman Photography Gallery, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Inchydoney Beach, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, don't miss a visit to Rock of Cashel, and take an in-depth tour of Cobh Heritage Centre.
