Cork, a city of history and traditional Irish culture, is situated in the south of Ireland. It has a number of historic buildings such as St Finnbars Cathedral and Shandon Church, where visitors are able to ring the church bells. Summer is festival season in Cork, with no less than four festivals including a jazz festival and a midsummer festival. To experience an unfamiliar sport, watch a Gaelic football match, where the atmosphere gets very rowdy.
Besides the historic cathedrals, the city's offers Cork University College, which has the Lewis Gluckman Gallery, a modern building exhibiting international art. The Cork City Gaol is worth visiting to witness how convicts from centuries ago survived in an old Irish prison. One of the best ways to get up close with the city's historic sites is on a walking tour.

Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
