Look up.

Most of us spend so much time staring at our feet or our phones as we navigate the city that we rarely (if ever) truly notice the rich and quirky history that surrounds us.

In fact, here at Yay Cork HQ, we’ve even been staring at our phones to delve deeper into the stories behind some of Cork’s more unusual buildings and ruins.

The @hidden_cork Instagram account is a collaborative effort that celebrates Cork trivia and unusual facts. Not only does it function as a sort of ad hoc history lesson, it also offers a fun route for a self-guided tour of the city.

Either way, it’s very cool.

Here are five fascinating images and facts about the buildings and landmarks we stroll past every day…

ST FINN BARR’S ROAD

TOWER STREET

RED ABBEY STREET

VICARS STREET

DOUGLAS STREET
