Plan to cross many bridges when in Cork. Ireland's third-largest city began life as an island and now spans both banks of the River Lee, with watery channels running beneath some of its main thoroughfares. The best way to experience this hilly southern seaport is on foot, following the signposted walking tour past St. Finn Barre's Cathedral and the riverside quadrangle of University College up the hill to red and white Shandon Church. Along the way, you'll meet plenty of the city's talkative residents.

Operating as a cooperative craft shop – staffed by the craftspeople themselves. With a large range of gifts, craft furniture and jewellery to browse Cork Craft & Design is always worth a visit. Makers come and go from the space with a rotation of stock once a month introducing new makers and new products to admire and inspire.
Fantastic collect of work by Cork based local crafts people. This is run like a co-operative. Craft standards are very high. Worth visiting on a monthly basis as crafts people change/ rotate on a monthly basis. Keep an eye out for the Home exhibition in Kinsale during craft month every August. Something for every budget and for people who appreciate skill, design and craft. If you want throw away things made in sweat shops then this isn't the place for you.

Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978, and moved to its current home in Tobin Street in 1986. Triskel celebrates its Fortieth Birthday in 2018 and Christchurch is 300 years old. As Cork's principal Arts Centre our mission has always been to commission, present and promote the contemporary arts in Cork, and to ensure the arts are made available to as wide a public as possible. In 2009 Triskel began a process of re-invention, partly because Christchurch, a beautiful 18th Century building, was to be restored by Cork City Council, linked to the existing building, and given to Triskel to manage. Triskel also began this process because it is important to continue to be relevant for artists, practitioners and the public at large. On 15th April 2011, that became a reality when the new complex was launched. We now act as an art gallery, independent cinema, civil wedding venue and a concert hall. Guided tours of this historic building are also available.
Art house cinema/music venue in an atmospheric old church, Art Gallery on the top floor and a busy little cafe/bar with the ruins of a 1,000 year old church visible in the basement makes this Arts Centre a must visit! The cinema always shows very interesting and eclectic films from around the world and hosts great visual Art exhibitions. A wonderful asset for Cork city.

We stopped on a whim and for look round Fiona’s shop and for a mid morning snack. The food was excellent with great scones and good coffee, the son informed me the slice of cake was not bad either. The staff are efficient and friendly, there is nothing negative I could say. We will stop for breakfast the next opportunity we get.

Great place to stop off for coffee. Lovely ambiance, very friendly and wonderful little gallery upstairs. Well worth a stop off on trips to Dursey or Bere Island!
