Activities in Cork.
Glanmire – The Rocky Road
We are lucky enough to have the most beautiful walk just on the doorstep of our hotel. It is known to the locals of Glanmire as the ‘Rocky Road’. Along the scenic walk, there is plenty of coffee stops to help keep your energy up throughout the 10Kish walk (walking from Cork’s Vienna Woods Hotel and back). The actual Rocky Road has a length of 0.7 kilometers but is part of a loop that takes you through the beautiful town that is Glanmire.
Fota Wildlife Park
Fota Wildlife Park is a 100 - acre wildlife park that is not even a 20-minute drive from Cork’s Vienna Woods Hotel. The park opened in 1983 and is an independently funded, not-for-profit charity and is one of the leading tourism, wildlife, and conservation attractions in Ireland.
