Tried to get information on the jazz festival. Nothing except advice that it would be on the Internet a couple of months ahead. Couldn't even say what type of jazz.

Stopped by the tourist office to gather some information about Cork and surroundings areas. The office had tons of great materials and maps available. Very informative information available.

We stopped here on our first day in Cork city to start our orientation. The staff were very helpful with maps, etc. They also gave us a great rundown of the various walking tours marked with signs placed by the town council. Definitely a first stop in Cork

There is a wealth of information to be found here, most of it free, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a computer screen where you can easily find all you need to know about places to visit and how far away something is.
