Cork History

From the infamous Battle of Kinsale (1601) to the life of Irish revolutionary hero General Michael Collins, Cork City's facinating and often turbulent history is packed with uniquely interesting events. 

Whether it is The Great Exhibition, the Butter Market, the English Market or Blarney Castle, there is loads to see and do at an array of attractions in which to explore the deep history of the city and county. 

Or maybe you would like to get a 100 year old historical Titanic feeling down in the town of Cobh or visit the beautiful coastal town of Kinsale?
