The English market

This food market goes from Princes Street to the Grand Parade and is enclosed in a building with unique 19th century architecture. Here you'll find plenty of local products, but also stalls selling specialities from afar.


Many leading retailers can be found in the immediate city centre, which is so compact you’ll find it easy to explore it on foot. As well as this, Cork is home to an impressive array of smaller local businesses, with no shortage of gift ideas.
