Cork English Food Market
Foods from all over the world as well as traditional Cork foods can be purchased in the English Market.
Located in the heart of Cork City Centre and very handy to get to.
The English Market has been serving the population of Cork City since 1788.
During its life it has survived revolution, war, depression, famine and the boom period.
It has always remained as the hub of the city, for its inhabitants to meet and gather.
In recent years the market has even been visited by royalty.
Queen Elizabeth 11 of England and just recently her son Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.
So when in Cork, the market is a must visit, even just to look around.
Blarney Castle and the Blarney Stone, everyone wants to kiss the legendary stone.
When lying on your back and head back don’t look down. It’s a long way down but don’t worry you’re in safe hands.
The castle that visitors see today is the 3rd castle to be built on the site.
Actually the first castle was built around the 10th century and was a wooden fort.
In 1210 the second castle was built this time of stone and then the present castle was built in 1446.
Blarney means persuasive elegance, being able to flatter or charm someone.
It comes from the Irish word Bhlarna which means little field, but we all like the first meaning.
Visit this old castle like gaol and imagine what it was like for the inmates to live here.
The gaol was built in 1824 and took 8 years to finish. As the years passed by different wings were added to accommodate extra prisoners.
The warders themselves actually lived inside the prison with their families in rooms just a little bigger than the cells.
When the gaol opened it was home to both male and female but of course in different wings.
In 1927 the gaol became a radio station for what is now the nation’s chief broadcaster.
Who wants to play Tarzan? Zip Lining will give you that chance.
Deep in the Cork countryside you will find zip lining for all levels.
A place where children can be children and adults can be children too.
You can climb high into the treetops if you have the nerve, swing into the cargo nets and then zip line.
For those scared of heights there are the lower levels where you will feel a little safer.
This is a unique experience for everyone to enjoy, no matter what age you are.
Mitchelstown Cave was discovered by Michael Condon in 1833, he came by it while he was out quarrying limestone.
When he dropped his crowbar into a crevasse he moved some rocks to pick it up. Michael looked down into what was a large underground passageway.
Now people from far and near travel to Mitchelstown to see this world famous cave.
Walking in Michael’s footsteps you will come across massive caverns which are covered in fascinating dripstone formations.
You will also come across one of Europe’s finest columns called the Tower of Babel.
Concerts are performed underground as the acoustics are incredible .
