Cork, the ‘Rebel City,’ straddles the River Lee in the southern Republic of Ireland. Fondly referred to as ‘the real capital of Ireland’ by its enthusiastic locals, the city boasts charming waterways, a youthful atmosphere and plenty of cozy pubs, 17th-century alleyways and modern vibrancy. Originally a monastic settlement, founded in the 6th century by Saint Finbarr, there’s an amazing range of architectural styles here, from medieval to ultra-modern. Browse the stores along St Patrick’s street or the stalls of the 17th-century covered English Market.
