Cork Holidays Overview

 

County Cork is known as the heartland of Ireland, and the city of the same name could be called the heartbeat. It is a vibrant, bustling city set is spectacular countryside, and less than an hourís drive from the Atlantic Coast.
 
Cork was selected as European Capital of Culture in 2005 due to its rich heritage and active cultural scene. The city has more arts venues per inhabitant than any other Irish town, including galleries, concert venues, and theatres.
 
Cork was one of main areas that resisted British rule during the War of Independence, and in 1920 British Forces set fire to buildings on one of St. Patrickís Street, one of the most significant areas of the city including the City Hall and the Carnegie Library. Although the street was almost totally destroyed, it has now been carefully restored to its former glory.
 
The city also played a key role in the civil war that followed, as it was initially controlled by the anti-treaty IRA. The Free State army invaded in 1922 and the battle of Douglas ensued, with the IRA driven out after a few days. Luckily the recent history of Cork has been more settled, and it is now a prosperous and thriving city.
