Things To Do in Cork

Snugly nestled between Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way and Ancient East is the Maritime Haven of Cork and city and county at large takes the best of its neighbours; the natural beauty of the Irish coastline, and a rich culture and heritage, and puts its own unique stamp on them!

Cork has been recognised and celebrated as a unique tourist destination through the ‘Pure Cork’ storytelling platform, a collaborative initiative, which was formed by the proud people of Cork to allow the people that know the county best to share stories of her significant maritime history spanning over a thousand years, set against the backdrop of a beautiful coastline.

Maybe you are visiting Cork with family and friends, and looking for the best spots to socialise or fun shared experiences? Maybe you want to soak up the history and stories of the people, the land, and the culture of Cork? Or perhaps or you are seeking the restorative effects of Ireland’s natural landscape and coastline? Whatever the reason, Cork invites visitors to discover a special and unforgettable way to stimulate all of their senses. So get yourself to Cork and breathe in the Pure Cork air!
