Fitzgerald's Park in Cork

Geography & Nature
Free Stuff

Tranquil Park on the River Lee


Fitzgerald’s Park is located centrally in Cork’s busy centre, which makes it a perfect spot to relax, have a sandwich or even a picnic. It is named after Edward Fitzgerald, a Cork Mayor who was in office in the early 20th century. Whether you came to admire the flower beds or the statues which line the ways here, you’ll not leave disappointed.


For colder days, there’s Riverview Café to warm up in with a nice hot cup. Just around the corner from the park, you will find Daly’s Bridge, better known as the Shakey Bridge, which you can use to cross the River Lee towards Cork City Gaol. It is Cork’s only suspension bridge.


Fitzgerald’s Park also hosts the Public Museum of Cork, where the city’s story is told. Definitely pay a visit with your group – entrance is free of charge.
