This should be the city's premier concert and performance venue, particularly classical music. It hosts the International Choral Festival, amongst many other high profile events. It is a beautiful space, ruined by a lack of even basic maintenance. Filthy dilapidated toilets, paint peeling off the...More

Both inside and out the building has a lot of history. The building stretches over a full city block. It is impressive both day and night. A beautiful view from across the river.

Lovely old building on the bank of the river, stands proud. Did not realise it was open to the public as there are no signs to where the entrance is or the opening hours.

City Hall commands a presence on the quays in Cork city. It is a fine stone building which is frequently floodlit in different colours at night which gives great photo opportunities.

This building combines the old with the new and dominates the rivers edge just beside the district court house that was a technical school of some note.Steet and multi storey parking near.
