Exploring Cork's Architectural TreasuresWalks can talk. Long after historical figures have passed on, buildings remain to tell the story of a city. These beautifully illustrated walks through Cork's architecture include clear maps, expert insights and intriguing historical details that will make you see the city in a whole new light.
Learn about Ireland's tallest building, the hotel where Michael Collins spent his last night and landmarks like the English Market and the old Beamish & Crawford brewery. The trails also open up outlying attractions like Fota House and Blarney Castle, as well as the seaside towns of Cobh and Kinsale.
