Cork is the second largest and third most populous city in Ireland. With its exuberant atmosphere and friendly locals, there is much to see and do whilst staying in Cork and Kerry cottage rentals, especially for architecture enthusiasts, as the city exhibits some excellent examples of a wide range of different architectural styles ranging from the medieval, such as the Red Abbey, to the modern period. There are also two notable cathedrals in the city, St. Mary's Cathedra, often referred to as the North Cathedral, which is Roman Catholic and was built in 1808, with its distinctive tower added in the 1860s, and St Finbarre's Cathedral, which serves the Protestant faith, and was built upon the foundations of an earlier cathedral, between 1862 and 1879 under the direction of architect William Burges.
