CORK ESTUARY WALK
Great day today to sample the estuary walk that starts near Blackrock Castle, where there are two car parks, and ends near the Rochestown Inn. Or vice versa, of course.
It is a pleasant walk by the harbour where you can see the ships coming and going and the birds feeding (if the tide is out). It was in this morning and that made the scenic side of it all the more attractive.
It is not the most scenic walk in the city but it is very popular and that should make it safer if you are on your own. It is also a very clean walk as a solid pathway is laid out for your convenience.
Perhaps the high point comes as you return towards the castle and take in the fine view of one of Cork’s most famous buildings.
