Location and orientation

Medieval Cork and the Vikings

The town of Cork in the province of Munster is the administrative centre of the county of the same name in the southwest of Ireland. Situated on an island, the medieval town of Corcaigh, which translates as "marshland", is enthroned in the middle of a mouth of the River Lee. Once occupied by the Vikings, Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland after Dublin, the capital, and is home to the Roman Catholic diocese of Cork and Ross, founded in the 7th century.

As the former centre of the European butter trade, Cork's "Butter Museum" dedicates a complete exhibition to spreadable fat.

Top travel tips

1st Culinary Discovery Tour on the English Market

A visit to the English Market offers gourmets the opportunity to taste traditional Irish specialities. Not far from your inner-city holiday home, the Foodmarket, founded in 1788, is the ideal place for a culinary discovery tour. A stroll along the 55 or so market stalls is a delicate experience in the typical Irish style, thanks to the wide range of regional products on offer, such as hand-made chocolate, homemade cheese and smoked fish.

2nd beer tasting at the Franciscan Well Brewery

Just like the local cuisine, Cork's brewing history also originates from a long tradition. In the Franciscan Well brewery you can experience the art of brewing developed over centuries for yourself. On the grounds of a former Franciscan monastery, the Fraciscan Well Brewery invites you to taste wheat beer, ale, stout or lager in the cosy beer garden, accompanied by music.

3rd excursion to the medieval Blarney Castle

Ireland is famous for its imposing castles. The medieval fortress Blarney Castle in the village of Blarney was built in the 10th century and is only a short drive from Cork. The venerable castle impresses historically interested holidaymakers with dark castle dungeons, enchanted gardens, legendary caves and winding walks. If you pass Blarney Stone on your trip, a kiss on its rough surface is said to give the kisser the gift of eloquence.
