The Republic of Ireland’s second-largest and third most populous city, Cork is nevertheless second to none in the eyes of Corkonians, who refer to the city on the River Lee as the “real capital of Ireland”. County Cork, which takes its name from the city, is sometimes known colloquially as “The Rebel County” in reference to its role in the Irish War of Independence and even today its inhabitants are known among their countrymen for their pride and sense of identity.

In recent decades, Corkonians have gained another reason to sing the city’s praises (yet another reason to take cheap flights to Cork). The county has become renowned as a foodie mecca, with excellent local produce and top eating establishments such as the restaurant of Shanagarry’s famed Ballymaloe House gaining international acclaim for their mastery of traditional Irish cuisine. Cork’s gastronomic prowess is such that it is even one of the reasons given for the city being named by Lonely Planet as one of the top ten cities in the world to visit.

When is the best time to fly to Cork?

Peak season: 

The summer months of July and August are Cork’s busiest in terms of tourism as this is when the weather is usually warmest and driest. 

Off season: 

The winter months usually comprise Cork’s quietest period for tourism, as this is when the weather is coldest and wettest, and this is reflected in accommodation and travel prices and availability. However, the months immediately surrounding the July and August peak months (May, June and September) often enjoy favourable weather but are outside the high season’s crowds and price increases.
