Activities and Adventures

Activities

From fun attractions to beautiful historical castles and building and safari parks just outside the city, Cork and its hinterland is a great region for the whole family to enjoy.

Why not watch the stars at the Blackrock Castle Observatory, or get up close and see the ostrich and giraffe that roam freely on the banks of Cork harbour?

You can receive the 'gift of the gab' by kissing the Blarney Stone, or explore our environment at the Lifetime Lab. 

Sports

Being a maritime city, Cork offers a range of watersports from kayaking around the city centre to exciting hair-raising high speed trips around Cork harbour.

For landlubbers your kids will enjoy the large playground at Fitzgerald Park, the indoor Monkey Maze, bowling and quasar at the Leisureplex and Mardyke and much more.  

Adventures

There's no shortage of fun and exciting things to do in Cork. Take a tour of the beautifully preserved Cork City Gaol and it's creepy history and then take a short walk west to the Lifetime Lab on Lee Road and it's superb outdoor playground and interactive exhibition.
