Carrigaline is the perfect place to stay in Cork as many of the city’s star attractions are within easy reach. The Fernhill Golf And Country Club and the Port of Ringaskiddy are two of the best places to explore here. Also, well worth the effort are the Douglas Golf Club and Cobh Museum.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area the special place it is. There are plenty of excellent places where you can spend an afternoon including the Cobh Heritage Centre in Cobh.
To surround yourself with nature, visit some of the nearby green spaces. These are good spots to breathe deeply and relax. Take some time out to enjoy the sunshine in tranquil places such as the Cork Heritage Park.
Hit a few balls at the Frankfield Golf Club.
To shop for local fashion or enjoy a snack, browse the Mahon Point Shopping Centre.
Spend an afternoon with fellow sports fans at Pairc Ui Rinn, cheering on the much-loved Cork GAA. On game days follow the sea of blue and white, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fellow sports lovers in the nearby pubs for a post-game drink.
When it’s time to rest your weary feet after a day spent exploring the many charms of Carrigaline, check in to one of the many local accommodation options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Cork International Airport Hotel, the Rochestown Park Hotel, Douglas, and the popular Park Inn by Radisson Cork Airport.
