Let’s talk about Cork
The River Lee Hotel sits on a tranquil stretch of
the River Lee to the west of old Cork. Of all the
Cork hotels, The River Lee Hotel is best-placed for viewing and
visiting this unique city. Make sure you see the three spires of St
Finbarre’s Cathedral. Pick up the gift of the gab with a kiss on
that stone at Blarney Castle, and play the bells at the top of St
Ann’s, Shandon. Sample life behind bars in the Old City Gaol and
get a taste of the industry that brought prosperity to Cork at the
Do as Victorian traders did and visit the
English market to sample delicacies from all over the world as well
as local organic produce. The Lewis Gluckman Gallery at University
College, Cork features contemporary art in an award-winning
building, and visitors can see casts of classical statues by
Antonio Canova at the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery.
There is a lot more. As we said, Cork packs it
