If you're looking for a city that represents Irish culture, look no farther than Cork. It has the cobblestone streets, hospitality, and culture of what everyone looks for in an Irish city. The people are friendly and you can't beat the local pubs and restaurants anywhere else. All types of travelers are welcome here. You minutes away from the Blarney Stone and a short drive to the Cliffs of Mohr. Cork is the city everyone should visit when traveling to Ireland.

Cork, the largest county in Ireland and one of the most vibrant and energetic cities of the country has much to offer between arts and culture, history and beautiful scenery and landscapes. The city itself is home to many theaters, museums and art galleries as well as top class hotels to pamper yourself for the weekend. It hosts annual festivals like the Jazz Festival and Live at the Marquee. Get out of the city and explore Islands, points of interest along the Wild Atlantic Way and stay at a relaxing seaside town in the countryside. You really have the best of both worlds. It's a beautiful part of the country that represents Ireland for all it's worth in the utmost of style.

we were at the Blarney castle watching the Irish step dancers it's much colder there than a NYC summer. They were amazing. Great cruise excursion. Those who can walk up narrow steps make sure to kiss Blarney Stone.

Most people come for the proximity to the Blarney Stone, but a city in its own right. Seat of radical politics. Nice vibe, but some of you may decide to give it a miss. Better than Waterford though.
