Fodor's Review

Extending from Grand Parade in the south to Patrick's Bridge in the north, Panna (as it's known locally—and also commonly referred to as Patrick Street) is Cork's main shopping thoroughfare. It has been designed as a pedestrian-priority area with wide walks and special streetlights. A mainstream mix of department stores, boutiques, pharmacies, and bookshops lines the way. If you look above some of the plate-glass storefronts, you can see examples of the bowfront Georgian windows that are emblematic of old Cork. The street saw some of the city's worst fighting during the War of Independence.
