What must I see in Cork?

There is an abundance of historic and cultural landmarks in this beautiful city. To be sure you're close to the action, make sure you choose your hotel in Cork within walking distance of your preferred attractions. If you're looking for some retail therapy, be sure to book a hotel near the Bishop Lucey Park area where you'll find the famous English Market. Featuring huge, vaulted ceilings and a polished marble fountain, this is one of the most visually stunning shopping malls you're ever likely to see. There are historic buildings all over the charming city of Cork. But if you're pushed for time, make a visit to the Cork City Gaol a priority. Book the audio tour to immerse yourself in centuries of history as you walk around. And when you're finished, take a relaxing stroll along the Mardyke Walk. There are some great hotel deals in Cork, and many of them are within walking distance of this wonderful attraction. But no trip to Cork is complete without a visit to the world-famous Blarney Castle. Dating back to 1446, this Medieval fortification is the home of the Blarney Stone. This region of Ireland is blessed with miles of inland waterways and breathtaking coastlines. There's a plethora of watersports to enjoy, including Atlantic Sea Kayaking. Look for cheap hotels near Spike Island and Cobh if you're interested in getting your feet wet. 

Where should I stay in Cork?

There are various bustling neighbourhoods in this historic Irish city. You'll find lots of hotel deals in Cork but if you're interested in the historic landmarks of the city, look for accommodation in or near the Victorian Quarter. Just north of the River Lee, this area is the commercial heart of the city. It's also home to the Soul in the City Festival. An oasis of high-end shopping and art awaits you in the Oliver Plunkett Street area. You'll find premium brands such as Olori, Bugatti and Van Dal. Thanks to a recent regeneration scheme, the area recently won the Great Street Award from London's Academy of Urbanism. There's also a great deal of history and culture to explore in the Shandon area. Fortunately, many of Cork's cheap hotels are located in this neck of the woods. If you'd prefer to be close to the city's cafes and nightspots, consider The Huguenot Quarter as your base. This vibrant neighbourhood is full of life throughout the day and night.
