Cork, Ireland's second city, is a perfect base for family holidays spent exploring the beautiful countryside of County Cork and its majestic neighbour Kerry.

Things to do with kids in County Cork

Take the kids to visit the giraffes and tigers at Fota Wildlife Park, a 30min drive from Cork centre. 

Head for Blarney Castle and the Stone of Eloquence. Make sure to kiss the Blarney Stone to give the kids the Irish gift of the gab! 

Explore the Cork coastline. Head to the west of the county to discover unspoiled beaches perfect for the kids to swim off. 


Cork is Ireland’s culinary capital so you won't have any problem finding great places with kids. Make sure to stroll through the charming English Market in the centre, where you'll find the best of local produce. And take a trip to the beautiful seaside towns of Kinsale or Cobh to enjoy locally caught seafood at its best.

When to go to County Cork

Cork and south-east Ireland are great for family holidays year-round, though the coast clearly comes into its own in summer.


Cork has something to cater for all pockets, whether it be a budget family holiday or something top of the range.
