Ireland's second city is first in every important respect, at least according to the locals, who cheerfully refer to it as the 'real capital of Ireland'. The compact city centre is surrounded by interesting waterways and is chock full of great restaurants fed by arguably the best foodie scene in the country. The River Lee flows around the centre, an island packed with grand Georgian parades, cramped 17th-century alleys and modern masterpieces such as the opera house. St Patrick's St runs from St Patrick's Bridge on the North Channel of the Lee, through the city's main shopping and commercial area, to the Georgian Grand Parade, which leads to the river's South Channel. North and south of St Patrick's St lie the city's most entertaining quarters: webs of narrow streets crammed with pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. Cork's dynamicism is reflected in contemporary buildings, bars and arts centres. The best of the city is still happily traditional, though – snug pubs with live-music sessions most of the week, excellent local produce and a genuinely proud welcome from the locals. Cork City Area Ireland’s second city has always had an unshakeable self-confidence and innate sense of pride, despite, or perhaps because of its (inaccurate) perception as Dublin’s pushy, clothes-borrowing, style-imitating younger sister. The so-called ‘Rebel County’s’ stock has been on the rise even more since it was named the European Capital of Culture in 2005: modern glass-and-steel offices and apartment buildings adorn the banks of the River Lee, new galleries, arts festivals, bars and shops have added to the city’s cache, and restaurants and local food producers have come into their own to make Cork a foodie paradise. Town and country: While Cork has some of Ireland’s most traditional and historical towns and villages dotted along its vast harbour and throughout the countryside, its city centre crackles with youthful energy. That’s thanks in large part to its award-winning university, UCC, which pumps new students, and therefore fresh shots of enthusiasm and ideas, into the city every year. The cumulative effect of all these influences means Cork is at the top of its game right now: sophisticated, vibrant and diverse, while still retaining its friendliness, relaxed charm and quick-fire wit. Defining experiences: Eat, drink and be merry: Start the day off with breakfast in the Farmgate Café located in the legendary English Market, picking up lunch to eat outdoors in Bishop Lucey Park across the road, then make your way over to the Franciscan Well Brewery for a pint of Rebel Red or Shandon Stout, followed by a live gig in Fred Zeppelins on Parliament St and finish with a bag of chips from Lennox’s on Bandon Rd. Embrace tradition by ringing the Shandon Bells in St Anne’s Church, then hop in a taxi to Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone, before ending the day with a trip to the coastal fishing town of Cobh in Cork harbour, the last port of call for the Titanic and home to ‘the Deck of Cards’ - probably the steepest hill in Ireland. Cork Jazz Festival Venue: Various venues in Cork City in October Internationally renowned, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival features over 1,000 musicians in dozens of performances at 70 venues citywide with over 95% of music sessions free of entry charges - and is one of the jewels in the crown of Irish festivals. Cork Choral Festival Founded in 1954 to be a dynamic force in developing choral music in Ireland, the Cork International Choral Festival is held annually over the five days preceding the first Monday in May. Cork welcomes choirs from across the world for a programme of Gala concerts. Cork Film Festival More

Great little Gem in the centre of Cork. Clean, modern, well equipped, warm. Everything we needed was there. Good email contact from owner Michael before we left home. Met by the wonderful Ger - who ensured we 4 were settled and sorted. Excellent!
