Cork City shopping

Cork City, the English Market, French Quarter and Boutiques
Just 30 minutes from Youghal is Cork city, the 2nd largest city in the country and designated as European Capital of Culture for 2005.

Cork is major city and for shoppers it is a full day trip. All of the major stores are present in the compact city centre, but surrounding them are literally hundreds of smaller specialist stores that you will find nowhere else. The Harrods of Ireland  - Brown Thomas - have a fine departmnet store on main street, Patrick street (which is mostly pedestrianised). They are flanked by other department stores, shopping centres, areas to visit.

The English Market should not be missed, its an 100 year old covered market full of fresh local produce and exotic foodstuffs. Kids will love looking at the stalls, particularly the fish stalls, one if them is huge, and always has a fine display with a showpiece massive fish in the centre. There are excellent suppliers of all kinds of food - some very exotic, some of it very local including 'buttered eggs' - fresh eggs that have had butter wiped over their shells.  Don't ask us, ask the vendors why - its part of the fun of shopping in such a vibrant place.

If you tire of shopping in Cork city, just travel north for a few miles and come to the famous Blarney Castle . Kiss the Blarney stone and gain the 'gift of the gab', explore this fascinating old fortress, walk in the beautiful gardens and you can shop at the Blarney Woollen mills and outlet centres on the same site.
