Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland as well Ireland’s 2nd most populous city after Dublin. It’s also the principal city and administrative center of County Cork, and the largest city in the Munster province. As of latest measurement the city of Cork has a population of 120 thousand people.

Cork is the anglicized version of the Irish word Corcaigh, meaning marsh. The city center was originally built on marshland and boats were able to navigate through the channels which separated to the many islands. The wider streets like St Patrick’s Street, the South Mall and the Grand Parade, were built on former river channels. St Patrick’s Street also known as “Panna” or simply “Patrick Street” is Cork’s commercial center. There’s a few sightseeing’s that can be considered as “not to miss” while in Cork including: Cork Vision Centre, Elizabeth Fort, Cork City Gaol and Cork Historic Walking Tours.
