Every student and their mother hang out here. A buzzing meeting point at Paul St Shopping Centre. Small cobblestoned square but so much to see/do here - food, shoes, books, cafe's, ---- and thats all outside the main Shopping centre.

Tribute statue to Rory Gallagher a wonderful guitarist brought up in Cork. As a big fan I had to visit this. Also plaque on wall Rory Gallagher Place. Would imagine the little square would be quite busy with people sitting out in summer time.

if you want to visit here because of Rory, don't bother. There is absolutely nothing at all to commemorate him save a plaque denoting the location. On one side there it a TESCO shop with some food joints on the other. The 'plaza' itself, is...More
