Lovely place

Very friendly people all around. Sometimes could be busy but quit calm and relaxing at the same time.

Pana as it's known to the locals has lost a lot of its character since the invasion of the large British dept. stores during the height of the Celtic Tiger. After being redesigned by Spanish urban architect Beth Gali, it certainly has a unique look and the broad boulevards are amenable to shoppers, buskers and browsers but for a better... More

Fine wide street with wide pedestrian pavements. Several large department stores including Marks and Spencer and some Irish stores such as Brown Thomas as well. Noted for the statue of Father Matthew at the Northern end.

Don't bypass this main street in the City... Loads of good shops. A variety of everything you need. Parking available in Merchants Quay or Paul Street Car Parks.

Very entertaining. Cork in... More
