Cork is synonymous of conviviality and pleasure of the table for the quality of its gastronomy. The English Market has existed since 1788 as a temptation for all the island's gastronomes. Its stalls are full of traditional cheeses, superb smoked fish and creamy chocolate.

A culture that is reflected in the many cafes and restaurants, such as Café Paradiso and Farmgate Café. For beer fans, you could not find a better place than Cork for a tasting. Feel free to stop by the many breweries such as Eight Degrees Brewing, Rising Sons, Elbow Lane, or the very typical and so warm Franciscan Well Brewery!
