LNOF Guide to Cork
This place has a thriving city centre, boasting amazing shopping centres, even better nightlife, a sparkling group of cafes and restaurants, and a populace who value wit and good humour above posing and pretention. You won't see many Cork women lacking in style as you stroll down St Patrick’s Quay on your way for a coffee, glass of wine or a massage at a health spa - and all the main labels are here if you want to indulge in a spot of retail therapy.
Putting special hen weekends together requires meticulous planning, the right blend of guests and a great host city. If you're looking for somewhere different from the usual suspects, but with character, nightlife, charm and a welcoming attitude – Cork has all of the merits. Combined with our inside knowledge and the warmth, style and openness of Ireland's second city, and see how Cork floats your boat.
Cork's locals understand the harmless excesses of a hen weekend very well - you can look forward to a beautiful selection of shops, bars and scenery during your stay by the winding River Lee.
There are more than enough pubs, stores, galleries, museums, restaurants, bridges, parks and assorted visitor attractions to keep you busy for the full 48 hours and beyond. However, it's often the food, the alcohol and the people - along with the accommodation you find yourself in - that turn a potentially-great hen weekend venue into a truly satisfying experience. Get ready to pop that champagne Cork and get the party started.
