Bit of culture
Cork has always brimmed with culture and after its status as European Capital of Culture in 2005 the city has been overflowing in cultural capital. From traditional Irish music and dance to art, theatre, festivals and sport there has never been a better time to visit Leeside.
Walks in the park
Cork City Council in conjunction with the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport is developing a series of four Heritage related walking trails in the city centre, called Cork Walks. These walking trails link places and buildings of heritage interest throughout the city from the steps and steeples of Shandon, the religious, archaeology and arts of the South Parish, the medieval to modern of the City Centre and the academic environs of University College Cork. As well as being very informative and interesting to local people, the walks provide a very attractive and enjoyable experience to tourists and visitors to Cork City. Cork Walks are free self guided walks consisting of interpretive panels with local historic information, written by local historians including Peter Foynes, Ronnie Herlihy, Antóin O Callaghan and Dr. John Borgonovo. There are also colour coded finger posts for guidance between the panels and a brochure with a map and description of sights along the way. Designed by a local graphic design company Bite Design, each trail is interlinked and colour coded. Each trail takes approximately 1.5 hours each but can be tailored to the interest and fitness level of the individual or group.
