Its quaint waterfront is full of artisan cafes, restaurants, and bars, but it is also a city which is still traditional at heart. Showcasing this, there are plenty of snug pubs with live music, hearty restaurants made from locally sourced ingredients, and a general air of pride and welcome from the locals. Cork city centre can be found on an isle on the River Lee, which snakes through the city. Here, waterways make up a big part of the city’s charm, partnered with Georgian avenues, 17th-century alleyways, and modern masterpieces like the opera house. Cork is not short of cultural sights either, with the St Fin Barre Cathedral, the Cork City Gaol and the English Market providing plenty of opportunity to immerse yourself in Irish culture.
