Fitzgerald’s Park and Museum are snugly nestled a short distance from Cork City Centre. This haven of tranquillity is bounded by the north channel of the River Lee, Cork County Cricket Club to the sast, The Mardyke to the south and UCC sports ground to the west. There is public parking nearby with a number of designated spaces. The park extends to about 18 acres of tranquil beauty. The tranquillity is rarely broken by traffic noise.
Access to the museum and park are free. There is a children’s play area which has some rides accessible to disabled children. The museum houses a number of interesting exhibits, is totally accessible and has 2 wheelchair accessible toilets. There is also a cafe on site.
So if you want to view a bit of history or just chill and relax this is well worth a visit. This morning was a lovely cool dry spring morning and the park was not at its best. I imagine it will be absolutely stunning when all the plants and shrubs will be in full bloom.
