Cork (Cobh), Ireland- Affectionately referred to as ‘The real capital of Ireland’, Cork is a musical and resilient place where tradition and modernity often meld; where live music and local pride are the order of the day. Navigate Cork's hilly streets and discover the melody of Ireland's most talkative citizenry with their signature gift of gab.

The seaside town of Cobh is located on the south coast of Ireland in County Cork and is considered one of the world’s most noteworthy, natural harbors. For history buffs, Cork is also a great find. Ring the Shandon Bells inside the 300-year old tower of St. Anne’s Church. Admire the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre’s Cathedral and stroll through 17th-century alleys surrounded by the River Lee. Ireland’s second city is fast becoming one of Europe’s most playful destinations.

You’ll easily find yourself downing a pint of stout in a cozy pub or enjoying hearty Irish favorites at a corner bistro on your Cork cruise. The town also boasts an array of market-source international restaurants serving French, Spanish, and American cuisine. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in the arts of weaving and cutting crystal. Cork is filled with the lore, tradition, and good cheer of Ireland at its best.
