    Cork City: Cork is the second city of Ireland and offers a range of shopping experiences from the high street to independent boutiques, it's a great place to explore.

If you're looking for traditional Irish crafts, there are a number of shops and markets that sell handmade goods, such as:

    The English Market: one of the oldest markets in Cork, the English Market is a great place to find local produce, as well as handmade crafts, jewelry, and clothing.

It's also worth noting that Ireland has a Value-Added Tax (VAT) rate of 23% on most items. However, if you are a non-EU resident and spending over a certain amount ( currently 315eur) on goods in Ireland, you may be able to claim back the VAT paid as a refund when you leave the EU. Make sure to ask the store for a Tax-Free Shopping Form.

Keep in mind that while many stores in Ireland are now open, some are still closed or operating with reduced hours, so it's always a good idea to check the store's website or call ahead to confirm the store's hours before visiting.
