Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fitzgerald park and Dalys bridge are next to each other, located in Cork City. A lovely place for walking, concerts and relaxing. It is also home to the Cork Public Museum.

This is an amazing amenity in Cork City. Fantastic park,playground etc but you need a local parking disc to park there. This is impossible for tourists to the city especially with small children. The nearest places that sell parking discs are a ten minute walk or ten minutes drive (one way systems and traffic) and when I went they were all sold out. This is very disappointing. Don't go there with small children if you don't have a disc.

Beautiful green area in a really nice part of the city, close to Daly Bridge and UCC. We also had good weather, so we enjoyed a nice stroll, just when we were about to leave Cork.

We strolled through here on the way to Cork Gaol, and it was very lovely indeed. Lots to see and lots of children enjoying the big play area. Shimmering trees and lots of plant. Even walked over the shaky bridge. I was shaking. Good fun

We had just visited Cork University College & found the Park less than 1km away .

It was filled with families & many just enjoying the lovely surroundings of some greenery right in the City.

There are plenty of lawns to sit , a duck pond , a river & a bridge all close by .

The gardens were in full bloom & well maintained , portable toilets , a kids playpark .

We also loved the "graffiti lane" across the road by the University Sports grounds

This park located at the heart of cork city is a great place for families and friends. It has tonnes of amenities like the spectacular playground, it also has a nice museum and a scrumptious cafe. The playground in my opinion is the best in cork. What is also great about this park is that it is very large and a great place for walks. There is also a cute duck pond at the centre of the park which is really beautiful. This is a great place for people of all ages to go visit!

Large and beautiful park and grounds. Variety of walking trails, seating areas as well as gardens along the way. Sometimes there’s activities or events in the park which are nice or just read a book on a bench. To my knowledge only 1 food option/cafe also but that may vary.

A walk in Fitzgerald's Park is a treat with a wide variety of interesting plants and trees (there's a great rose garden) sculptures, the pond with lots of ducks and water fowl, a terrific children's playground and all bordered by the River Lee. There's also access to the famous Shaky Bridge. Recommended highly

Nice green lawns and trees in the city next to the river. Children can play in the official playground but can also climb on the modern art silver balls.
