Places to See on a Sunny Spring Photo Walk in Cork City Ireland

Cork City is one of my favorite places to visit in Ireland and I go at least once a year for business or pleasure. Cork is fun rain or shine but in my experience, the forecast has more often been 'rain'. I visited Cork in late March this year for what turned out to be one of the most beautiful weather weekends of the year. Here are some ideas for places to see or things to watch out for in Cork if you take a photo walk when the sun is shining.

Keep an Eye Out for Blooming Trees in Cork

Spring was definitely in the air when I traveled to Cork. The trees were positively exploding with blooms.

Notice Cork's Architectural Accents

Cork simply shines when the sun is out and all the little details of the city burst forth. Keep an eye out for architectural accents like ornate tiles, pious crosses, rusty fences, and more.

I love the wrought iron fences in Cork, especially this one: Craicmore (actually, I think it's Craigmore but I like to think of Cork as a city that has more craic :-))

Stroll Along the River Lee in Cork City

The River Lee runs right through the center of Cork City and alongside University College Cork. The river and its banks are great for a walk and countless natural photo-ops.

Explore the Quadrangle at University College Cork

Tulips at University College Cork (UCC)
University College Cork (UCC) is one of my favorite campuses in Ireland. One a sunny spring day, the flower beds offer a stunning pop of color again the gray stone of the quadrangle.

I especially loved the reflections of the sun against the antique glass on the quad.

Open doors seemed to invite me in for a closer look.

The stone corridor at UCC comes alive on a sunny afternoon as the sunshine filters in. Get in touch with ancient history and walk among the runes. 

Wander Through the English Market in Cork

The English Market in Cork City is a Victorian era gem of a food market. There is a light filled atrium at one end of the market with a colorful fountain decorated with tropical birds. There is nothing finer to see on a sunny day in Cork.

Walk the Hallowed Grounds and Study St. Finbarr's Cathedral

St. Finbarr's Cathedral in Cork, Ireland
St. Finbarr's is an imposing edifice that dominates the skyline in Cork. On a sunny day, it's nice to walk walk among the old graves in the cemetery surrounding the church and imagine what life was life for past residents of Cork over the centuries.
