More on what Cork has to offer the visitor
The central part of Cork is encased in between two arms of the River Lee, meaning water is a big feature of the city and details such as bridges and quays, not normally evident in a city, are in abundance. In fact, some of the streets used to be waterways.
Grand Parade is a case in point; it now houses the National Monument, a gorgeous park, and the English Market. Paul Street is the centre of the liveliest district, stuffed full of restaurants, bars, and trendy shops. The crenulated outline of Blackrock Castle is easy to spot a mile down the river. Unfortunately it is not open to the public but Barryscourt Castle is, with a 15th century tower house and extensive grounds.
The refurbished City Gaol has an exhibition detailing what life was like for prisoners. In the same building is the Radio Museum Experience which chronicles the history of radio in Ireland and across the globe.
