Cork: culinary joy in Ireland

Fancy a culinary and surprising weekend holiday? Book a flight to Cork and discover pleasant pubs with live music, interesting museums and an abundance of charming boutiques in age-old streets. There’s plenty to see and do in Cork. The locals call it ‘Ireland’s true capital’, and with good reason.

Local dishes and street food

The English Market is one of Cork’s highlights. In this attractive covered market, where family businesses have been selling their food for generations, you’ll find the finest local produce. From its upper terrace it’s a joy watching people over a nice cup of coffee. And don’t forget Oliver Plunkett Street. Its ambiance livened up by buskers, this pedestrianised shopping street, lined with pastel-coloured buildings, houses as many as 111 boutiques of independent retailers. Cork is the ideal destination for weekend holidays, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in Ireland. Treat yourself: book a flight to Cork now!

The world’s longest coastal route

Ireland’s dramatic coastline is world-famous and Cork is the ideal point of departure for a drive down the Wild Atlantic Way. Stretching over 2500 km, this coastal route is the world’s longest. Allow its legendary scenery consisting of rugged cliffs and deserted beaches to capture and amaze you. Drive by crystal blue bays, fields full of sheep and enjoy real Irish music in local pubs. Even if you can drive only a small part of the route, the Wild Atlantic Way is well worth it.
