Hotels in Cork
Nicknamed the rebel city, Cork is dynamic, fast-paced and steeped in culture and history. The city is built on the banks of the River Lee, with part of the city centre actually an island, and has one of the world's largest natural harbours.
Book one of our Cork hotels and discover why the locals refer to the city as the real capital of Ireland.
Shandon Steeple, officially St Anne's Church, is one of Cork's most famous landmarks. It is known as the Four-Faced Liar due to the propensity of its four clocks to all tell slightly different times. You can ring the church bells, see how the clocks work, and enjoy panoramic views of the city from the tower balcony.
St Fin Barre's Cathedral stands on the spot where Cork's patron saint Finbarr founded his monastery in the 7th century. There's plenty to admire here too, including marble floor mosaics, a stunning ceiling, stained glass windows and more than 1, 260 sculptures.
