Car Hire Cork
Low Cost Car Rental in Cork
With its old winding streets and pleasant bustling atmosphere, Cork is the perfect destination for a relaxing city break. The cathedrals of St Finne Barre and St Mary are both fascinating landmarks. St Finne Bar dates back almost 1400 years, when it was founded as a monastic school. St Mary’s is a grand imposing Cathedral in the gothic style, towering above the city around it. For a flavour of local life, head down to the City Market. This lively and ancient market is a great place just to people-watch or to sample some of the amazing selection of fresh fish, gourmet cheeses and warm bread straight from the oven. Cork’s old city gaol has been opened up to visitors who can now follow a tour through the dank old cells and get a feel for what it was like to be incarcerated here in the nineteenth century. As you can probably guess – it wasn’t pleasant!
Cork by Car: Great Sights at Bargain Prices
Perhaps the most famous local attraction (and one of the most famous sights in Ireland) is the beloved Blarney Castle. Hire a car in Cork and you can visit Ireland’s oldest castle and join the queues to bend down and kiss the Blarney Stone. This is supposed to endow the kisser with the gift of the gab.
