Museum

Whether your interests lie in history, art, or culture, Cork has a museum for you. Whether it is the Cork Public Museum, Cork Butter Museum, Crawford Art Gallery, Lifetime Lab, or Military Museum, there is something for everyone. You can explore your historical side with a trip to Cork City’s museums, each offering a unique, fun and educational experience.

Cork has much to offer in the way of beautiful parks, however the most notable of these being Fitzgerald’s Park, about a 5 minute drive from Cork city. Taking in a massive 18 acres this attraction is sure to keep the kids busy for a while. Stroll through this “slice of heaven” where you will find neatly arranged bedding plants and a pond with fine examples of aquatic plant life. Fitzgerald Park is also home to Cork Museum. On view here is a permanent collection of items made from Cork Silver and a precious archaeological collection, which includes “finds” from the Cork area. After all that you deserve a break! And like most parks now, Fitzgerald Park has a children’s playground. So relax, and take in your beautiful surroundings while the children run around for a while.
