About Cork

The city of Cork occupies an island in the river Lee. Like many Irish towns, it began as a monastic settlement in the Dark Ages. However, Viking invaders soon saw the location's potential close to one of the world's largest natural harbors and made the city their own.

The city of Cork was established by Royal Charter in 1185. Defensive walls surrounded the city in the medieval period, and you can still see remnants of the medieval city within the modern metropolis today. The walls were built to protect the city's English rulers from the hostile Irish natives in the countryside beyond. The city even played a role in England's War of the Roses in 1491 when an English nobleman came to Cork and tried to recruit its people to overthrow England's king.

In the 19th century, Cork became a center of Irish nationalism and opposition to British rule. In the years following the First World War, Ireland fought a war of independence from British rule, during which Cork was burned. But when Ireland finally gained independence, Cork was rebuilt and began to thrive again. Nowadays, it's a hub of both industry and culture in southern Ireland and represents a different side of the country from what you'll find in Dublin.

From strolling Fitzgerald Park to an afternoon at the old City Gaol, a trip to Cork means a busy itinerary from brunch in the morning to drinks at night. Wondering where to store non-essentials when seeing terrific sights in Cork? Rather than search the city for station lockers, look for luggage storage Cork on the Bounce app. Book a place to stow your belongings wherever you are in the city, giving you maximum flexibility to see the sights.

Luggage storage in Cork

While Cork may be Ireland's second-largest city, its center is highly walkable. With narrow cobblestone streets filled with history, walking is one of the best ways to see the town. Traveling on foot allows you to stop wherever you like and see attractions you might otherwise miss in a vehicle.

Our convenient locations make exploration easier by helping you to leave your heavy bags behind wherever you are in the city. Drop off your items with one of our vetted partners. We’ve created luggage storage facilities near many top attractions, and your belongings will be safely stored until you’ve finished making the rounds in Cork. The best way to take advantage of our luggage storage service is to download our app, allowing you to create a booking while you’re on the go.

Activities and attractions near Cork

Blarney Castle

Many of Cork's visitors come to see the legendary Blarney Castle. This impressive fortress dates back to 1446 when local chieftain Cormac MacCarthy built it to help maintain his power over the area around Cork. The castle is an impressive medieval monument and offers great views over the scenic Cork countryside, but it's most famous for being the location of the Blarney Stone. Local legend states that anyone who kisses the Stone will be granted the gift of eloquence, and on busy days, long lines of visitors can be seen waiting for their chance to participate in this ancient tradition. 

Blarney Castle bag policy

They don’t say for sure, but it’s often the case that suitcases and big bags aren’t permitted inside these ancient places. Plus, if you plan to explore the castle and gardens, you’ll want to find a baggage storage location to drop off your belongings beforehand. Use our convenient luggage storage services if you visit the castle during your trip.

Fota Wildlife Park

You may not expect to run into exotic animals in Ireland, but that will happen if you visit Fota Wildlife Park. Located outside Cork, this not-for-profit zoo and conservation center allows you to get close to animals such as kangaroos, chimpanzees, red pandas, and other exotic species. It makes a great day out for the family as you observe these charismatic animals and travel through their habitats on a specially designed train.

Fota Wildlife Park bag policy

You aren’t allowed to bring certain things inside of Fota Wildlife Park, like scooters, skateboards, roller blades, balls, drones, and several other items. If you have any of these things with you, we have convenient locations for left luggage storage near the park. 

Killarney National Park

A little over an hour's drive west of Cork, you'll find yourself in one of Ireland's most celebrated natural areas. Killarney National Park is a magical landscape of rugged mountains, deep forests, and endless rivers and lakes. Hiking trails allow you to experience one of Ireland's last great wilderness areas. Home to the highest mountain range in the country, the park also contains Muckross House. This late 19th-century mansion allows you to experience how the nobility lived in this area before it became Ireland's first National Park in 1932. 

Killarney National Park bag policy

They don’t say whether you can bring suitcases and backpacks into the park, but it’ll be hard to walk around the natural terrain with big bags. On top of that, you may not be able to bring your bags into the mansion or other landmarks. Book luggage storage early in the day and see as many museums as you’d like. Then, pick up your belongings and head to your next adventure.

Shandon Bells & Tower St Anne’s Church

Listen to the bells of St Anne’s Church. This charming church is known for the soothing sound of its bells and was built sometime between 1722 and 1726. When the bells aren’t ringing you can climb the spire for a great view of the city and the surrounding countryside.

Shandon Bells & Tower St Anne’s Church bag policy

Although they don’t state that bags aren’t allowed, it’s likely suitcases and large items won’t be permitted inside. If you’re also planning to climb up the tower, know that you’ll have to walk up 132 steps. Make your visit easier and store luggage at a convenient location for baggage storage near the church.

University College Cork

Take a tour of University College Cork. The picturesque campus of one of the country's premier universities is a great place to spend some time. Don't miss the Stone Corridor with its collection of ancient pagan gravestones.

Cork City Gaol

See the darker side of Cork at the City Gaol. Opened in 1824, this jail housed both petty criminals and Irish Republican rebels during the War of Independence. Now a museum, tours allow you to visit the old cells and imagine life as a prisoner in 19th and early 20th century Cork.

Cork City Gaol bag policy

We’re unsure whether bags can be brought into this museum, but you’ll enjoy visiting the gaol more if you don’t have to drag heavy luggage around. We have partners in local shops and hotels close to transportation hubs and museums like this one, so you can spend a few hours learning about Cork without your belongings weighing you down.

Shopping in Cork

The English Market

Shop in style at The English Market. This stylish covered market is the perfect place to pick up local delicacies and immerse yourself in Irish cuisine and culture. The market is located inside a beautiful 18th-century building, and here, you’ll be able to browse the stock of local traders offering locally produced and organic foods.

Saint Patrick’s Street

Enjoy the vibe along Saint Patrick's Street. Cork's main shopping street is a lively place at any time of day or night. Along with all the familiar stores, you'll find plenty of pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a leisurely drink or delicious meal and take in the atmosphere of the charming city.

Opera Lane is the most recent place to be added to the list of shopping destinations in Cork. It has everything that you’d expect in a high street, with lots of international store locations. Walking down the street, you’ll also come across several coffee shops and cafes where you can stop for a break.

Top restaurants in Cork

Elbow Lane Brew and Smoke House

Eating at Elbow Lane Brew and Smoke House is a must for meat lovers. It’s a traditional restaurant with a large, open-plan kitchen but what customers really love is the food. Not sure what to order? We recommend starting off with a plate of sunchokes with hazelnuts, and maybe slow-smoked pork ribs, roasted sweet potatoes and homemade coleslaw for the main course.

The Glass Curtain

Looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion? Go out to eat at The Glass Curtain. The restaurant is inviting, and they have a friendly staff happy to serve you a delicious meal. A favorite of patrons is the collar of pork. It comes with a peanut ruay that’s made in-house and is unlike any you’ve tasted. Craving something sweet for dessert? You can never go wrong with the honey custard tart with fresh cream and nutmeg.

The Spitjack Cork

Customers have been flocking to The Spitjack since it first opened in 2017, and it's now an award-winning restaurant. Their meals are made using only fresh local ingredients, including meats and produce bought from The English Market we mentioned above. The codfish cake is delicious, and they have several options for vegetarians, like the honey-baked goat cheese salad.

You may be ready to dine but have shopping purchases weighing you down. This is where our Cork luggage storage service will come in handy. Book luggage storage with us, head to a must-try eatery and savor a delicious meal.
