    Situated on the banks of the River Lee, in the south-west of Ireland, Cork is the second-largest city in the country. It is smaller, more affordable, more laid back than Dublin and often referred to as the "Real Capital" by Corkonians(people of Cork). The city is also known as the Rebel city due to its opposition to British rule throughout its history and has always been an important seaport. To know more about its history, you must visit famous sites like the Military Museum and the Cork City Gaol, where revolutionary nationalists and other rebels were once jailed.
