Shopping in Cork City
Shop til you Drop in Cork City!
Cork City is Ireland’s second biggest city and very popular for city shopping breaks. Steeped in history, Cork City is fast gaining a reputation as one of Europe’s hippest cities. Why not visit Cork and see all of the tourist attractions and shops!
Like Venice, the city is built upon water, and the city centre is built on an island in the River Lee, just upstream of Cork Harbour.
The two channels of the River Lee which embrace the city centre are spanned by many bridges, and this gives the city a distinctive continental air.
Cork offers a wide variety of tourist attractions and shopping possibilities, and where better to stay for your shopping break but the new Address Cork! With complimentary on-site car parking on the hotel grounds, The Address Cork is the ideal location to stay while you “shop till you drop”.
Make sure you don’t miss The English Market –
Cork’s English Market has served the people of Cork in the face of famine, flood, war and multiple recessions. During this unprecedented public health crisis, we want to remain open to serve you, our customers. The English Market is, above all else, a food market for essential fresh produce.
The mix of traders in the English Market is as diverse as at any time of its existence. Small stalls sit alongside larger businesses, fledgling traders beside long-established family businesses passed down from one generation to the next. Meats and fish, herbs and spices, fruit and vegetables, sauces and oils, chocolates and cakes, cheeses and pastas – the Market caters for all culinary tastes and all eating occasions!! You’ll also find crockery, t-shirts, novelty items, clothes alterations and art – an eclectic mix itself creating a diversity of customers, adding to the unique atmosphere of the English Market. Having experienced the sights, sounds and smells of the Market, customers can unwind and sample it’s tastes and enjoy the banter from the various cafés, delis and food plates from the atypical stalls.
