LOCAL ATTRACTIONS NEAR THE RIVER LEE HOTEL

As the Culinary Capital of Ireland, it’s no surprise that one of Cork’s premiere draws, with its artisan stalls and sensational food, is the renowned English Market. Cork is a vibrant city though - famous for its music, shopping, architecture and beautiful surrounding countryside – and here are a few of our favourite local attractions.

The English Market

The English Market

One of the delights of Irish life are the town food and produce markets, and none is more glorious than the world-renowned covered English Market in the heart of Cork City. Taking it's name from the protestant corporation that created it in 1788 (as opposed to the later Irish market), the English Market has been at the heart of life in the city ever since. Surviving fire and several attempts to redevelop the ornate home of this culinary treasure, the market continues to thrive. Home to long-established family businesses as well as to a new generation of artisan producers, The English Market showcases everything from traditional delicacies of tripe, drisheen, salted ling and crubeens to some of the finest meats and cheeses in the country – its glorious vaulted space is an essential destination for foodies, culture vultures and those just happy to enjoy the banter at one of the innumerable cafes.

Arthur Mayne Heritage Pub

Arthur Mayne-Heritage Pub

learn more

In a city not known for its shortage of watering holes, creating a buzz for a new bar calls for lateral thinking, but few start ups can be as startling as Arthur Maynes on Pembroke Street. Maynes' is a wine bar in one of the city’s oldest commercial buildings, dating back to the early 1700s, and home to a chemist for many years. But instead of converting the building to its new function, everything has been kept exactly as it was. The warren of rooms is filled with the paraphernalia of the chemist's trade, with cases devoted to medicines, cameras and perfumes in antique bottles. Arthur Maynes' is a bar in a museum – a superbly atmospheric way to sample the fine wines and food on offer.
