Cork Opera House is a theatre and opera house in Cork in the Republic of Ireland.
The tower and bells are symbols of the city, and overlook it from the north. Visitors are allowed to ring the bells. This church is in a conservation area.
Offers a good view over the city. However, it is not easily seen from the city. From Southgate Bridge, go up Barrack Street and turn right. The Elizabeth Fort Market Festival takes place on Sundays inside the historic fort walls and features Irish-made crafts, gourmet food, and entertainment. There is a police station within the fort.
This is just a few minutes away from the Elizabeth fort and much easier to find. A fine 19th-century Gothic Revival building. Visible from the back is a golden angel high upon a tower.

One of Ireland's best intact priories. The priory, surrounded by its old walls, was built in 1193. You are free to wander throughout the whole complex. There is a Round Tower and High Cross nearby in Kilree. There is a parking lot above the priory, but the more beautiful way to enter is by parking near Mullin's Mills and walk along the river. It is well worth a visit.

A unique Tudor merchant's house built between 1594 and 1610. On a burgage plot, it comprises three houses, three cobble-stoned courtyards and a half-acre restored Tudor garden behind the house. Rothe House contains Kilkenny Archeological Society's history museum and archive library.
This stunning chateau-like building is one of the residences of the Butler family, who ruled Kilkenny for many years. It has a lovely small suburban garden. During Arts week in August it is used a venue for exhibitions.
The show cave is incredibly well developed and is a wonder to walk around. Guided tours only.
