Cork City Council in conjunction with the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has developed a series of four Heritage related walking trails in the city centre, called Cork Walks.
These walking trails link places and buildings of heritage interest throughout the city from the steps and steeples of Shandon, archaeology and arts of the South Parish, the medieval to modern of the City Centre and the academic environs of University College Cork. As well as being very informative and interesting to local people, the walks provide a very attractive and enjoyable experience to tourists and visitors to Cork City.
You will see colour coded directional signs throughout the walks to help orient and guide you and there are information panels located at various interest points along the route
All four walks start from Daunt's Square marked on the map.
The information was written by local historians including Peter Foynes, John Borgonovo , Ronnie Herlihy and Antóin O Callaghan.
