The Marina – Self Guided Audio Trail

The Marina – Self Guided Audio Trail
May 20, 2021 Cork Harbour Festival
  • June 4, 2021 - June 14, 2021
    06:00 - 23:55

In association with Cllr Kieran McCarthy.

A stroll down The Marina is popular by many people. The area is particularly characterized by its location on the River Lee and the start of Cork Harbour. Here scenery, historical monuments and living heritage merge to create a historical tapestry of questions of who developed such a place of ideas. Where not all the answers have survived, The Marina is lucky, unlike other suburbs, that many of its former residents have left archives, autobiographies, census records, diaries, old maps and insights into how the area developed. These give an insight into ways of life and ambitions in the past, some of which can help the researcher in the present day in understanding The Marina’s evolution and sense of place going forward. Take a walk with us and discover more.

The audio tour will be available here to stream live on your smartphone from 4-14 June 2021.

  • All you need is your smartphone and some headphones.
  • The audio trail starts at the very western end of The Marina, near Shandon Boat Club.
  • Download The Marina map as a Jpeg so you can easily follow the route. Have fun!
