Historic Sights in Cork

Along with the historic intrigue of the Cork City Gaol, Cork has some engaging historic attractions from a storied past. Around central Cork, you can explore impressive sites like the Cork Cathedral, a beautiful building constructed over practically a whole century, or head over to St. Anne’s Church to get a great view over the city. Further out from Cork, you’ll find the iconic Blarney Castle, whose legendary ability to give visitors the ‘Gift of the Gab’ has made it one of Ireland’s most enduring attractions.

If you’re visiting Cork with the family, you’ll quickly be amazed by the range of different activities children can enjoy across the city. After a fun and informative visit to the Cork City Gaol, you can head over to Blackrock Castle, an ancient castle containing an exciting modern science attraction, or explore the world of animals in a natural, animal-friendly environment over at the Fota Wildlife Park.
