Groupon’s Guide To County Cork
The largest of all in Ireland, County Cork takes the traveller through an array of rugged mountain slopes and scattered cliffs, flat peatlands and lush woodlands, with a shore laced by pebbly beaches, promontories and peninsulas. Washed by the River Bandon, the River Blackwater and the River Lee, County Cork’s landscape is also dotted by tens of lakes.
Cork is the largest city within the county, a hub for heritage tourism based around sights like the 18th century English Market, the 8-bell Church of St Anne and the City Hall plus the Opera House. St. Patrick’s Street is the shopping backbone of Cork. Fota Island is particularly appealing to tourists interested in wildlife, being home to the namesake Wildlife Park and to the Fota House and Gardens.
