Overview of the tour in Cork

For almost three hours, we will walk through the historic center of Cork exploring part of the history of the city. Do you know who its founders were? Perhaps the importance of its port will give you a clue. We will tell you how the city has been changing over time since the 7th century, when Saint Finbar built an abbey in this area.

We'll pass by places like St. Anne's Church, St. Mary and St. Anne's Cathedral, and Bishop Lucey Park. Later we will arrive at the Cathedral of San Finbar, famous for the copper angel and gold paper that decorates its facade. What will be its meaning? We will reveal it to you!

Nearby we will come across Fort Elizabeth, used for more than 400 years to defend Cork from invaders. Did you know that the Vikings arrived in the city in 820 AD? At that time they built their own city on an island in the Lee River.

After exploring Cork's history, we'll end the free tour at the National Monument.

This activity includes:

  • St. Anne’s Church (remains)
  • Bishop Lucey Park
  • Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Mary & St Anne, Shandon
  • Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral
  • Local Guide
