Cork’s English Market is an indoor farmers market. It is one of Ireland’s most famous food markets and is a must-visit for foodies. Here, you will find the best artisan goods and produce from local farmers. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth II visited the market during her state visit to Ireland in 2011?
This 600-year-old medieval castle is a must see during your visit to Cork. In recent years it has become a famous landmark. The architecture is impressive, and make sure you admire the Castle from the different angles. You will notice that some facades are mystical, others threatening. The ruin will make you travel back in time. And there is more, as the castle is the home of the well-known Blarney Stone. The legend goes that those who kiss the old stone receive the ‘gift of eloquence’ (fluent, elegant or persuasive speaking).
Accessibility note: The castle and surrounding grounds are fully accessible. The Blarney Stone, however, is not. According to the tradition, visitors must lean backward holding on to an iron railing to kiss it.
As the name suggests, Blarney Woollen Mills should be on your list if you want to shop the finest woolens. Founded in 1823, the Blarney Woollens Mills today offers something for everyone. In addition to your woolen accessories, you will find a wide range of Irish products. Shop for Celtic jewelry, classic Belleek pottery, or pewter. For non-EU visitors, Blarney Woollen Mills offers an in-store tax back service.
