Cork

 

IrelandWelcome to our page of information, attractions and places of interest around Cork. The Cork hotels listed below are either in the town or we have given a rough guide as to how far they are from Cork. The Republic of Ireland is bound to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east is the Irish Sea which reconnects to the ocean via the southwest with St. George's Channel and the Celtic Sea. The Republic of Ireland has 26 counties, and five cities — Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. The west-coast of Ireland features cliffs, hills and low mountains. The centre of the country is flat with large areas of bogland. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation from our list of Cork hotels.

Cork City is Ireland's third city and has always been an important seaport. It began on an island in the estuary of the River Lee and gradually climbed up the steep banks on either side. Today the river flows through Cork city in two main channels, so that you find yourself constantly crossing bridges. Also see - Bed and breakfast in Cork
