The Shores of Cork

River Lee, Cork City

Cork is Ireland's southern capital, lying on the divided waters of the River Lee at the head of the great tidal expanse of Cork Harbour, at the centre of Ireland's southern coast. It is Ireland's second largest city with a population of 136,000. A vibrant yet hugely historical city, numerous shopping centres, with the creme de la creme of Irish and international produce, are all within walking distance of the Arbutus Lodge Hotel.

The following table shows the distance between Cork and Ireland's other major centers.

The Cork region offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a great range of diverse scenery, culture, and leisure activities. Many of Ireland's greatest heritage and tourist attractions are within easy touring distance of the hotel. Cork also has everything for the sportsman, with eight beautiful golf courses within an eight mile radius, first-class fishing, inshore and deep-sea, and superb yachting facilities all nearby. Numerous hunter trials, horseracing and point to point fixtures are held in the hinterland. Mallow's spectacular race course is just 20 minutes away.
