A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!
Welcome to Cork City Walks. We look forward to meeting you on one of our friendly, informative, leisurely walks around our beautiful and charming city.
We encourage interaction and banter as we seek to share with you our love of Cork, its unique history, friendly people, colourful culture and Corkonian wit and traditions. We will take you on a leisurely walk around the compact 800 year old city, where you will experience the smells and sounds of the English Market, stroll the busy lanes of the 18th century Huguenot Quarter and wonder at Burges’s magnificent French Neo-Gothic cathedral.
Mindful that a healthy walk generates a good appetite, we will help you discover a variety of places to eat, drink, enjoy live music (ceol agus craic) and enjoy the best entertainment Cork has to offer during your visit. At journey’s end our wish will be that we have lived up to your expectations and that when you return home you will encourage family and friends to visit Cork by the Lee.
A must for anyone that wishes to experience the heart of the city and learn about the history of Cork.
Knowledge was unusually deep and so when he answered questions he touched on multiple layers of History. Courteous and hospitable.
Helped us understand Cork’s fascinating history and growth, interspersed with tales of the many fascinating Corkonians and others who contributed.
You’ll learn the lay of the land and the lore of the Lee, and be well prepared to take off on your own, with a stock of insider’s tips. Highly recommended.

Places and buildings of interest outside the confines of the walk (e. g. Shandon, University College Cork) will, however, be woven into the fabric of the story we tell.
