Sunset in Cork, Ireland Cork

The imposing St. Finbarr's Cathedral is one amazing attraction. It stands on perhaps the oldest Christian site in Cork; among its most striking features are the fine rose window, the mosaic pavements and the elaborate carving. Tradition has it that in the 7th century St. Finbarr founded a monastery on the site. The CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory is a castellated fortification which now houses an observatory and science centre.

With a car hire in Cork you can drive just outside the city limits to Blarney Castle and kiss the Blarney Stone, legend has it you’ll then be blessed with the gift of the gab. Also, visit The Old City Goal; now a popular heritage centre. Shop in the English markets or Cork University on the western road has a fine collection of ancient Ogham stones. Take your car and head for Baltimore, Cape Clear Island or Bantry Bay as Cork certainly makes a good base for coastal exploration.
