Cork City Centre and a visit to The Claypot

In the run up to Christmas I decided to have another ramble through Cork City Centre on my own last Monday morning and to check out areas that I really hadn’t looked at in my original blog. Here are the links to disabled parking,2194,en.htm and Multi Storey Car Parks I parked on Tuckey Street and rolled past the Berwick Fountain to Oliver Plunkett St. This is an easily navigable street and after 11.00 it is closed to vehicular traffic. Most of the shops are accessible when travelling alone but there are a small few that require assistance. I turned left at the GPO onto Winthrop St and then onto Cook Street and Princes Street which are all pedestrianised at the St Patrick Street end and all the shops are accessible. The access ramps are a bit steep in a small few but doable.

After I finished my look around the Grand Parade, which is fine, I travelled through Castle Street on over to North Main Street and then finished off in the Coal Quay a.k.a. Cornmarket Street where I met up with Jean. These streets are very pedestrian friendly and the shops are accessible. There are a number of smaller shops, pubs and restaurants on the Coal Quay along with a weekend open market and a shopping centre. The Cornmarket Centre has a variety of shops most of which are accessible. The centre also opens onto Paul St which is home to a number of smaller shops, pubs, restaurants and Paul St Shopping Centre.

I met up with Jean and we went out to The Claypot Restaurant in Atkins Garden World on The Carrigrohane Straight for a bite of lunch thanks to Living Social. The food was beautiful and it is well worth a visit. Atkins is much more than a garden centre and also worth a visit. There is parking at the front door and the wheelchair accessible toilet is clean and spacious. This about 5 to 10 minutes drive depending on traffic but worth the effort.

All in all a very enjoyable morning.
