"Quinlans bar is one of Cork most lively spots, and it promises to be the same this weekend with some great live music lined up. Blue fusion will be kicking off the weekend on Saturday at 10 pm followed by the ever-entertaining Clockworks band at 7pm on Sunday. For those of you who like a boogie, Quinlans has you covered with their dance floor right next to where the bands play, perfect if you still have a few moves left after the Ed Sheeran concert!"
"Quinlan’s is a family-owned restaurant built on the legacy of the world-renowned seafood shop the family has been running since 1963. It now has seafood shops and bars all across Ireland but their restaurant in Cork may just be the best of the bunch. If you end up visiting Quinlans, make sure you try the incredible salmon on which the Quinlans reputation is based on."

"Camden Fort Meagher is internationally recognized as being “One of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world”. For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defense of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales. The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second-largest natural harbour in the world."
"Described as “one of the finest remaining examples of a classical coastal artillery fort in the world,” Camden Fort Meagher dates back to 1550. Forming part of the harbour’s fortification system, it expanded gradually over the centuries. You can now wander through the deserted, windowless ramparts and around its craggy stone walls for an eerie insight into the history of Cork’s maritime defence."
