Cork Ireland’s charming county

Direct flights from Cardiff to Cork

Cork is Ireland’s largest county and lies near the mouth of the River Lee, surrounded by mountains and a striking coastline. Home to a beautiful landscape, Cork has the perfect backdrop for family friendly outdoor activities or relaxing walks along the coast.

In contrast is Cork’s city centre that has been transformed during a cultural revival, revealing a cosmopolitan and vibrant destination. Visitors will find streets of trendy boutiques, exquisite restaurants and the chance to experience a range of festivals that celebrate everything from food to literature.

Finally, don’t forget about Cork’s historic landmarks. From ringing the Shandon Bells in the 300 year old tower of St. Anne's Church, exploring the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre's Cathedral or kissing the iconic Blarney Stone, there is plenty to discover!

  1. Find Blarney Castle. Approximately 5 miles from the northwest of Cork is Blarney Castle, a beautiful landmark that is one of Ireland’s oldest castles. Spend the day exploring the grounds and visiting the Stone of Eloquence.
  2. Hire a bike. Cork is a great city to explore via bicycle so make sure you hire one for the day and see what you can discover! 
  3. Shop! There is plenty to choose from if you love shopping and Cork’s markets are definitely worth a visit. The English Market is one of the best!
  4. Try something different. Cork is on an island so there are many opportunities to explore the waterways, including kayaking.
  5. Take the Tasting Trail. Cork is known for delicious food so try and book a place on the Cork Tasting Trail as this will show you the best dining opportunities in the city.
