Our Lady’s Hospital, Lee Road
This nineteenth-century mental asylum looming over the city may have largely been converted into flats, but you can still go and see the sections that have been deemed too dangerous to develop. If you really want to creep yourself out, go at night. Alternatively, go during the day and take pictures of the windows. When you go home zoom in and see what you find. Try it!
St. Kevin’s Hospital, Lee Road
While this place is thoroughly secured these days, it is still worth going up for a look. I was lucky enough to get in there a few years ago. Even on a sunny summer’s day it was seriously unsettling.
Look up the legend of the Flooded Kingdom. And then sit and wait by the Lough to see if you hear the eternal session for yourself.
Cork City Gaol, Sundays Well
This self-guided winter tour is a must tourist attraction. What better time of year to do it?
The Franciscan Well Pub, Sundays Well
Many have reported hearing the rattling chains of water being brought up from the original well. Many have reported this as hearsay. Regardless, many have also enjoyed a lovely pint and pizza here so why not go and look for yourself?
