Heart of Cork

This street and parade course are the beating heart of Cork. A lot of shops of all kind. Except for pubs that are best in parallel streets

Good place to look for souvenirs or anything you need while traveling. Lots of places to eat off the street, lots of people around. Sadly, not very pretty. But it's downtown!

We went on Saint Patrick's Day 2017 with a mixed age group from pensioners, middle aged adults and early twenties. The atmosphere was fun and St Patrick Street has a huge variety of pubs.

St Patrick Street is Cork City's main upscale shopping street with Brown and Thomas, Debenhams, Marks and Spenser, the famous English Market, and an array of other fine shops. Nearby are the Grand Parade and Plunkett Street for more shopping options.St. Patrick Street and vicinity offer a various dining options from McDonalds and Starbucks to numerous pubs and finer fare.

So many shops, bars and cafes all along the street. That's the main one in cork center but from there you can walk around so many little walking streets. If you wanna do some shopping with some drinks or ice creams all along, that's the place to go !!

This used to be a grand and even elegant city center until "renovations" turned it into a run of the mill city street. The public lighting system is ugly and out of character with the street. I used to think that the lights were left over after construction/renovations, but they are here to stay! What a sad thing!

This is the main street of the city of Cork. For the most important street it is very disappointing. The Northern side of the street has a fine statue by by John Foley of Fr Theobald Mathew a Capuchin Friar "The Apostle of Temperance". who died in 1856. While there are some fine department stores.there as you venture towards the... More
