Summer Tours

Summer 2019 incoming! We’re looking forward to running regular walking tours throughout the summer months! Our tour focuses on the Historic Spine of Cork, which takes in the oldest streets of the city, from Elizabeth Fort up to Shandon. Expect tales of monks, vikings, warriors, merchants and local legends, ideal for tourists and locals alike! We’ll show you hidden gems embedded into the city of Cork, including historic cannons, fireplaces, plaques and churches! Our local and passionate guide will take you on this guided tour for approx. 1.5/2 hours, regardless of the weather! Keep an eye on our website and social media sites for the beginning of our tour season 🙂

Cork Walks Maps

We stock a range of maps of Cork, including the ever popular Cork Walks series. These maps are handy routes for a self-guided stroll through parts of the City, with information panels dotted throughout the walk. There’s four to choose from: Shandon, City-centre Island, University Walk and the South Parish. For the gaeilgeoirs out there, we also have the maps as Gaeilge ‘Siúlóidí Chorcaí’. Stop by our reception desk to stock up on walking maps! All free!
