How to Spend 3 Days in Cork

How to Spend 3 Days in Cork

With three days in Cork, you have plenty of time to soak up the city’s atmosphere, discover its most famous sights, delve into local culture, and head out into the countryside. Here are a few ways to experience the best of Ireland’s second city in 72 hours.

Day 1: Cork Sights

Start your visit by getting your bearings and checking off top sights such as the English Market and St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral. Pedal along riverside paths on a guided bicycle tour; follow your stomach on a foodie walking tour; or explore at your own pace on a self-guided audio tour. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off bus tour covers more ground in less time while allowing you the freedom to create your own itinerary, and you can board and disembark where you wish.

Afterward, toast your first day in Cork with a glass of Irish whiskey and a tour of the distillery at the Jameson Experience.

Day 2: Blarney and Cobh

Two of the most important towns in County Cork, Cobh and Blarney are both within easy reach of the city. Guided tours from Cork let you skip the hassle of driving, and usually include admission to landmarks such as Blarney Castle—don’t forget to kiss the Blarney Stone. After a stop in Blarney, most tours continue on to the historic town of Cobh on Cork Harbour, from which millions of Irish people emigrated between 1840 and 1950. You’ll learn about how Cobh was the final stop of the ill-fated RMS Titanic, and you’ll likely visit sights such as St. Colman's Cathedral, with some free time to explore independently.

Day 3: Wild Landscapes

For your final day, arrange for a private, customizable tour to take you anywhere near Cork that interests you. Walk around small towns or big cities—or go hiking, cycling, or kayaking in the surrounding countryside.

Alternatively, join a guided tour heading far west to the Cliffs of Moher. Leave Cork early in the morning to allow plenty of time to admire the sea cliffs, the views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the wild, rocky landscape of the Burren. Some tours stop by Limerick and the medieval Bunratty Castle.

Back in the city, relax and enjoy the vibe of the Grand Parade, one of Cork’s most famous streets, where you’ll find plenty of dining and drinking options.
