About Ringaskiddy

Ringaskiddy is located on the western side of Cork Harbour. It is protected by a hilltop Martello Tower, built in 1804 to defend against invasion by Napoleon. This one time quiet fishing village has today been transformed into a major transport centre. Lucky for you, as it's your gateway to the delights of Cork!


Cork's bustling city centre is brimming with fascinating shops and markets, and the welcoming, lively pubs are overflowing with live traditional Irish music (and Murphy's stout). The hilltop steeple of 18th-century Shandon Church is a symbol of the city. The sweeping views from the top are wonderful, and you can have a go at 'Danny Boy' on the church's bells yourself.


Visit St Fin Barre's Cathedral with its splendid triple-spired example of French-Gothic architecture. Explore the Cork City Museum and the 19th century Cork Jail. And get the gift of the gab after kissing the Blarney Stone in nearby Blarney Castle.
