While you're visiting us, you might be interested in finding out more about the history and historic sites of the city. Cork Walks is a series of three Heritage-related walking trails in the city centre, designed and funded by Cork City Council in conjunction with the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport. (A fourth trail will be launched later this year.)
These walking trails link places and buildings of heritage interest and provide an attractive and enjoyable experience to tourists and locals alike.
