Cork Urban Us

Cork, Docks and Hills

The view out over towards the docklands offers a mesmerizing vista of the city’s rich history and rapid modernization. The demolished Cork Bonded Warehouses, once a bustling hub of trade and commerce, now stand as silent witnesses to the changing times. The Sextant, a once iconic pub, adds to the nostalgic charm of the scene.

On the far bank of the River Lee, houses and buildings can be seen, standing as testaments to the city’s long-standing culture and heritage. The colourful and eclectic architecture adds vibrancy and character to the scene, inviting the observer to explore the nooks and crannies of the city. Close by, the warehouses that were demolished to make way for modern buildings still stand in this 2005 photo, a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made for progress. The view out over Cork City docklands is a testament to the city’s rich and varied history, as well as its promising future.
