Silversea Luxury Cruises A CORK

CORK

Colourful, quirky and refreshingly laid-back, the Rebel City is a bright and breezy blend of easily-walkable charm and trademark stunning Irish scenery. You may be surprised, as you stroll quietly humming streets, surrounded by the River Lee’s embrace, but this is the Republic of Ireland’s second largest city. Cork is more than happy to fly a little under the radar, however, and this beautiful city is an unbeatable starting point for exploring some of Ireland’s most dramatic western scenery. View more

Cork’s English Market is a delight – try out some of the best juicy Irish beef, seafood plucked the same morning, or the simple pleasure of a quiet cup of morning coffee. The Butter Museum is a low-key joy, and a charming ode to the simple dairy pleasure that forms one of Ireland’s most important exports. Cork is also a rising star in the craft beer world, and you can try the latest and greatest of the contemporary beers brewed here. Or settle into your pick of the vast choice of authentic, characterful pubs - where soupy pints of Guinness - perfectly poured with years’ worth of expertise and care – slip down a treat. Don’t be afraid to explore further afield. Postcard-perfect Cobh is close by, while Blarney Castle is a stout fairy-tale stronghold. Resign to the castle’s folklore - and dangle precariously upside down, while leaning out to kiss the famous Blarney Stone - said to bless you with the ‘gift of the gab,’ otherwise known as the ability to chat articulately. Glorious coastal vistas of emerald green fields, precipitously dropping to thrashing ocean below, await along Ireland’s scenic, windswept western coast.

The present owner's mother, Norwegian born Didi Jameson, was a keen plants-woman, and the fine collection of trees and shrubs that she planted have now reached maturity.

Local Boat to Spike Island

Depart the pier on foot accompanied by your Spike Island guide and board the boat for your approximately 20 minutes ride to Spike Island. Extending to 104 acres, Spike Island commands a strategic position within the sheltered mouth of the lower reaches of Cork Harbour, one of the largest natural harbours in the world. For centuries people have used the island for a wealth of different reasons. Monasteries on islands were often hermitages and places of pilgrimage that played an important role in Early Christian Ireland, and written evidence suggests that, in the seventh century, Saint Mochuda founded a monastic settlement on Spike Island with 20 brothers.


Spike Island Military Fortifications

Cork Harbour has been vital to the development of overseas trade and commerce since Viking times, but not all of the trade on Spike was legal. During the eighteenth century the rugged Spike Island shoreline was a hiding place for smugglers. In order to protect the harbour, a series of artillery fortifications were built at strategic locations in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the largest of which is on Spike Island. Unlike medieval castles, these were built with a low profile to absorb cannon fire and had the characteristic star-shaped plan with corner bastions. Many memorabilia from this time can be found on display on the Island.


Convict Depot

In 1847 Spike Island became a convict depot. By 1850 over 2,000 convicts were detained on Spike Island and in 1883 the last of the prisoners were relocated to prisons on the mainland. Almost a century later however, the island became a prison again. Between 1985 and 2004 the fort was used to hold young offenders - mainly 'joyriders' convicted of stealing and recklessly driving cars.


Guided Walk and Time at Leisure

Today it plays host to stories and memories that have created such an interesting history of the Island and surrounds. Enjoy an approximately 45 minutes guided tour of the key features of the Island before taking time to explore independently for approximately 1 hour.


Re-join your boat for your return journey to Cobh where you will make your way independently back to your awaiting ship or take some time to explore Cobh town.
