Cork City Holiday Reviews

Historic, cultural Cork is one of Ireland's top short break destinations, and it's easy to see why; must-do activities include kissing the Blarney Stone at gorgeous Blarney Castle, taking a tour of the Old Cork City Gaol, ringing the Shandon Bells at St Anne's, and sampling the scrumptious local fare at the English Market. Come evening, visit the city's fantastic pubs for live music and good craic, and settle into a cosy corner for a pint of the black stuff.

Getting to Cork couldn't be easier with a variety of transport links. Cork Airport is just a short journey from the city. Flights from the UK take around an hour and depart from most major airports including Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh. Cork is also well connected to Dublin via the M8 and M7 motorways with a driving time of less than three hours. There are passenger ferry links into Dublin from Liverpool and Holyhead and also ferries into Rosslare from South Wales.

  • Cobh formerly known as Queenstown, was an important transatlantic port and is famous as the final calling point for the Titanic before it set out on its ill-fated journey to New York. The Cobh Heritage Centre tells the story of Irish emigration to the new world as well as liners such as the Titanic and Lusitania. The Titanic Experience visitor centre is even located next to the original pier where passengers boarded the doomed liner.
  • Blarney Castle lies just outside Cork and is world famous for the Blarney Stone. Visitors hang upside down over the edge of the castle battlements to kiss the stone which is said to give the gift of the gab! The castle dates back to the 13th century and also played an important role in William III's war in Ireland.
  • The English Market is at the heart of Cork's shopping district and fresh produce from all over the world can be found here as well as local produce. The market also supplies local restaurants. While in Cork, if you're feeling brave, try the local specialty of Drisheen, a fatty blood pudding usually served with tripe!
There's lots more to see and do during your break in Cork, check out our travel guide for more inspiration.

Birthday Trip to Cork

Stay Date: 10/03/16, a customer aged 45-64 from Leven who stayed at 4* Maldron Hotel Shandon Cork City Non Refundable in Cork wrote this review.

Maldron Hotel was excellent, staff very helpful and friendly. Location was great, in quiet area, and close, within walking distance to the main shopping area, bus station and train station. Food was See More  Read more information excellent, breakfasts and dinners. Room was clean and comfortable, only wee hitch was it was very warm during the night, unable to open windows. But that was no doubt due to the mild weather while wewere there. Which, of course, was great for sightseeing!   Collapse  Hide

Wet weekend in Cork

Stay Date: 07/11/08, a customer who stayed at 4* Ambassador Hotel & Health Club in Cork wrote this review.

The rain was never-ending!! But we had a great time in Cork, great choice of bars and restaurants. The Ambassador hotel was excellent, although our legs certainly knew about the short (but steep) See More  Read more information walk back from city centre! Took the bus out to Blarney Castle, kissed the Blarney Stone in the middle of a downpour (and I've got the photo to prove it) We will be going back again when the weather'sa bit kinder.   Collapse  Hide

Short Visit to Cork

Stay Date: 27/03/08, a customer who stayed at 4* Ambassador Hotel & Health Club in Cork wrote this review.

Ambassador hotel had friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast included in deal, and well worth having in the package as it's pretty expensive to eat out anywhere. The restaurants visited included See More  Read more information Greens in the town centre, part of a converted warehouse, this place is highly recommended - Excellent food & service. Castelli's Italian Restaurant in the centre was also good for a more straightforwarditalian meal. Trised out the city bus tour which was OK, there didn't appear to be too much great sights to see, and spent a lot of time just stuck in traffic. Best have a quick walk around beforehitting the pubs. The English Market food hall was a good stop for a coffee & picking up a fine cheese & wine selection for mid afternoon snacks. No shortage of pubs around town. Take a brolly & lots ofmoney. Some walking boots if you are staying at the ambassador - it's fine on the way down to town, but a bit harder work on the way back up after a few refreshments.   Collapse  Hide

Two Days in Cork

Stay Date: 25/07/07, a customer who stayed at 5* Hayfield Manor Hotel in Cork wrote this review.

My husband and I had just spent four days in Killarney and had taken a long and scenic route to Cork where we stayed at the Hafield Manor hotel for two nights. The hotel was excellent in every way See More  Read more information and just how we imagined it . We took advantage of the swimming pool on the evening we arrived and had it to ourselves. The only remark I would make about the hotel is it's position. It is right inthe middle of student land being right next to the University.My husband and I did not feel over safe with the surroundings and did not venture out walking at night - something we were happy to do inKillarney.We are not an elderly couple and we may possibly have over re-acted but it was a strange place for a five star hotel to be. We were un-impressed with Cork itself but found plenty to do in thetime we were there.   Collapse  Hide
