If it wasn't for this place there would really be nothing else to do in Cork. Eat, drink and shop for a day or two. But what makes this place special (as well as every other place we visited in Ireland) are the wonderful, true and friendly Irish people!
Wow lovely clean ,loads of shops ,cafes,restaurants of all sorts, gift shop with loads of gifts for the whole family ,nice spending the day, tourist office with loads of information and maps helpful people all around .
What can be said about Cork? its people? Its food ?
The time I was in Ireland staying in Cork, which was approximately 1 month, allowed me to walk this street many times, watching the city performers, eating nice at any of the restaurants down the road and shopping in all those beautiful stores gave me the possibility to love...
With Wonderful Shops , Staffed ( most of the time) With Helpful and Obliging Staff , This Street is the Bond Street of Cork , BT's , Debenhams , lots of Quirky Shops , a real dream in Shopping ( old style) not shopping Malls .
The title says it all. The street has everything you need; most major high street outlets, bargain shops, banks, cafes, pubs, fast food chains, etc. The street was quite clean at the time, got crowded gradually but not hectic. Bus stops everywhere.
