We love exploring new places and take loads of pictures! We visited Dublin last year. Now, we would like to stay in Cork. We heard that there is not much to see, is that right?

Cork is full of interactive attractions to explore, both within the city centre and its surroundings!
The hop-on hop-off bus will take you along the key sites. You can learn about the production and value of butter in Ireland at the Cork Butter Museum, ring the bells at the Shandon Bell Tower, and have an interactive tour of the Cork City Gaol!
The best souvenir from Ireland is surely the gift of the gab, so be sure to kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, just out side the city. The castle is surrounded by beautiful gardens and trails, so you can easily spend hours exploring the grounds.
If you want to see other magnificent gardens, we suggest that you go for a walk in Fitzgerald Park to enjoy its peaceful atmosphere.
If you are a food lover, do not miss the English Market where you have opportunities to taste many local products. If you also like typical "Irish liquid food", do not leave the county without visiting the Jameson Experience in Middleton. Click here to see 5 more things to do in Cork city.
For a different view of Cork, check out the Cork Sea Safari where you can explore the Harbour. Keep an eye out for dolphins, they have been known to make an appearance on the tour!

Cork City is awesome and I also think Cork is very photogenic (hopefully a plus for you since it sounds like you enjoy taking pictures). 

I visit Cork at least once a year for my 'day job' and I've compiled a fairly extensive list of things do do in Cork City. Don't miss visiting the University College Cork campus, one of the most historic and beautiful in Ireland. One of my recent discoveries (recommended by a Corkonian) is Nano Nagle Place. Nano Nagle was a pioneer for Catholic education during the time of the Penal Laws in Ireland. She set up a school for the poor in Cork despite the risks. Today, Nano Nagle Place features a beautiful garden and a brunch place that leans vegetarian (Good Day Deli).

I hope you enjoy your trip to Cork!

Great suggestions from everyone! I'm working with Specialized Travel Services, a tour operator based in Cork so I love giving recommendations for things to do! 

Crawford Art Gallery is my first stop when I'm showing people the best of Cork. The Crawford is the old custom house so from a historical perspective, it’s a landmark in Cork. There are some really famous names in Irish art dotted around the building- Louis le Brocquy’s portraits, Jack B Yeats Dublin scenes,Harry Clarke’s stained glass- among others. The cafe in the gallery is also great! 

I personally also love East Cork- I would really recommend the Ballycotton cliff walk and stopping by Ballymaloe House and Gardens! It's run by the Allen family who have a fantastic 100 acre organic farm, hotel and restaurant there! 

There's also plenty to do in the evening in Cork. I recommend Elbow Lane (serving the best steaks in Ireland by my reckoning!) Sin E and Spailipin Fanach have great live traditional music almost every night of the week. 

Thanks,
Deirdre
