“Fitzgerald Park, Cork, Ireland”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It is a lovely mature tranquil park on the north bank river Lee , just before the city from the western entrance(opposite University College Cork)
Marvelous landscaping , and a comprehensive city Museum in the extensive grounds covering local archaeology and history from the Stone Age to modern times. A nice cafe -behind the museum faces the river and the beautiful descending tiered gardens of old Victorian villas on the opposite bank..

“Wonderful Green Space beside the River Lee”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Child-hood memories for me and a place I visit with my own children every time I return to Cork. It's a beautiful green park on the banks of the River Lee, just off the Mardyke. The park has an interesting museum, coffee shops, playground, lakes, rose gardens etc. It's a great place to stroll through, or for a picnic. If you have time, cross the river Lee via the Shakey Bridge. Ask a local for directions!

“A Beautiful Park”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

This is a beautiful large park within walking distance of the city centre. A great place to bring a picnic and relax with friends. The café isn't that great so be sure to bring your food with you ;)

“An asset to the city”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This is a nice relaxing area near the river with well kept gardens and lovely lawns. I would definitely recommend it for picnic lunches, but agree that in the interests of safety, night time would not be the best time to visit.
