Victorian Quarter, Cork

The Quarter

The story of the Victorian Quarter is just beginning, although it gets its name from the area’s gorgeous old Victorian buildings which once housed merchants, traders and craftsmen.

The Victorian quarter spans the neighborhood from Kent Station to St Patrick’s Bridge and it’s conveniently close to transit hubs for those traveling via bus, coach or Kent train station.

Best known for its lively culture of music, entertainment, restaurants and trendy bars, the Victorian Quarter is Pure Cork. Enjoy the ambience and admire the architecture along historic shopfronts and bustling streets.

St Patrick’s Bridge is the gateway to the Victorian Quarter. Did you know there are carvings of saints and sea goddesses on it? Bridge street is a great place to discover local treasures or pick up a crafting project. If you’re not ready yet for a pint or a bite to eat, stroll on down to the popular Mother Jones Flea Market, which is housed in an amazing old warehouse. The community here is steeped in history and the streets are full of landmarks to explore.

Victorian Quarter, Cork

During the 19th century Cork was having a heyday, especially among traders and craftspeople in the Victorian Quarter. This tradition is still carried on today by a quirky mix of well-known specialist stores and iconic landmarks like The Metropole Hotel and the Everyman Theatre, which was originally known as Cork’s Palace of Varieties. Established over 100 years ago, the stage has hosted many famous acts. Charlie Chaplin once performed here, and this was the place of Rory Gallagher’s final gig. Now restored to glory, the theatre is destination for modern and critically acclaimed theatre.

You could call it urban character, but we call sights such as Trinity Presbyterian Church “The Crooked Spire”. The city’s industrial legacy is still visible in chimney stacks and beautiful cast-iron details throughout the neighbourhood. Our heritage continues to inspire us we grow and develop a new era in the Victorian Quarter. It is a destination for local, national and international visitors.
