Attractive Tourist Sites In Cork

(x1)  | By: Ernest | 406 Views | 0 Replies

Tourism makes a whole lot of sense in Cork, Ireland’s second biggest city.  It is referred to as the 'real capital of Ireland', surrounded by waterways, great restaurants and hotels. The River Lee brings you to a standstill as it flows around the city’s centre.   This island is cramped neatly with pubs, commercial area, arts centers and music arenas. The crossing of bridges is what gives the city’s coat of arms motto 'A Safe Harbour for Ships'. If you love music, the water world and tourist attractions, then Cork is where you should be.

 Cork

St. Finn Barre’s Cathedral is a 17th century monastery that was built by the founder, St, Finbarr. You are going to hear the epic stories of how the Viking sea-pirates raided and burned the city in this place. Once, this city was called the ‘Rebel Cork because it had this reputation of stubborn resistance and independence.

There is this signpost walking tour that would give you direction of where to be in Cork. The Tudor-Gothic University College has this riverside quadrangle scenario, where the Honan Chapel is located. You can visit other religious places such as the St Mary's Cathedral, where there are lots of notable carvings; St. Mary's Dominican Church, that has the "miraculous" statuette of Our Lady of Graces.

There is the Patrick’s hill where you can hike and stroll depending on your mood, and then the Cork Heritage Park at Blackrock. You will see the monument of Father Theobald Matthew, a 19th century Apostle of Temperance. This is the city main landmark and there are other places you can still visit when you are here.

Do not forget to taste the exotic meals at restaurants, and have a great experience of the live music from the locals at the pubs.
