Cork City Tour - Blarney Castle

Cork Have a walk through Cork City, second city of the Republic of Ireland. Cork centre is built on an island in the River Lee, just upstream of Cork Harbour. The two channels of the River Lee which embrace the city centre are spanned by many bridges, and this gives the city a distinctive continental air.

There are many attractions for visitors to Cork City to savour. The imposing St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral is one such attraction. It stands on perhaps the oldest Christian site in Cork.
