Cork

Cork History & Culture Uncovered is a 4km historical stroll through the streets of Cork city at the very south of Ireland. Failte go Corcaigh! -Welcome to Cork Begin this historical and cultural trail through Cork city at the Shandon Bells and Saint Annes Church. Cork is the second largest city in Ireland and also commonly known as the real capital of Ireland. We shall visit some of the key historical and tourist spots in this vibrant city.

Cork is a city shaped by the vibrancy of its people. Corkonians are confident, sharp-witted and often rebellious, giving the city its nickname of the rebel county. The rebellious nature of its natives has been passed down through the generations in its song and oral tradition. Poet and writer Robert Gibbings once commented "people that you have never met stop you on the street for a conversation". Be sure to ask Cork natives about the historical stops along the way and you will be sure to be immersed into the life and stories of Cork life. ​ Cork city’s panoply of life – with its vibrant people, buildings, bridges, the river Lee– echoes the history and cultural evolution of this acclaimed ‘real capital of Ireland’. Along this walk through Cork you will be welcomed by the warmth of its people, the rich undulating accent, the hustle and bustle of a pocket sized city that packs a punch.
