Your Wellness Day in Cork- A 6-step Guide
The last two years alone have had a major impact on the mental wellbeing of everyone in Ireland.
You might have forgotten what truly makes you happy, deep down inside. The simple things that gave you joy.
So why not treat yourself to a wellness day in Cork?
And to help you with that here’s a 6-step plan for enjoying a variety of wellness experiences in Cork.
Start your wellness journey with a walk around Fitzgerald’s Park. You don’t need to go for a run but getting sunlight into your eyes first thing in the morning has distinct psychological benefits – it actually makes you feel better.
You also don’t need to walk Cork from end to end to feel healthier.
Plus, you will get to observe plenty of birds and insects by the river. Observing animals in their natural habitat releases dopamine – a feel good chemical.
P.S. Try not to fall in!
Metcon Training in Cork
Now that you’ve warmed up your muscles it’s time to take things to the next level with a 45-minute MetCon fitness class at PowerGym.
This allows you to boost your metabolism and sweat out all those toxins from the last several months of unhealthy living.
Rooftop Brunch in Cork
After a cooldown and a relaxing detox in the thermal suite at PowerGym, it’s time to recharge your cells with some delicious food.
Sophie’s Rooftop Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal prepared with fresh ingredients including local produce.
And you get to enjoy stunning views of the Cork City skyline.
Well-being cannot exist just in your own head. Well-being is a combination of feeling good as well as actually having meaning, good relationships, and accomplishment. – Martin Seligman
Coffee and Journal on the St. Patrick’s Hill
It’s the most Irish thing ever to say, “I’ll go and think about that”. But that doesn’t solve anything. A better solution is to grab your journal or diary, grab a coffee from Dime Coffee Bar, and write down your thoughts looking over the Cork City skyline.
This provides you with a way to mentally work through any issues you’re currently facing, and the odd thing is that you won’t be as preoccupied with those thoughts afterward.
Who knows – you might even come up with an idea for that novel you’ve always wanted to write.
Enjoy Healthy Dining Options
The temptation now might be to treat yourself to a takeaway or some other pile of greasy goodness, but why not consider a healthier option instead?
Cork offers a great range of vegetarian restaurants such as Paradiso an Sonflour while Sophie’s Rooftop serves up a selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Catch a Gig at the Cork Opera House
Cork Opera House has had a glorious history of both culture and architecture dating back to its inception in 1852 when it was first built on Anglesea Street.
The Opera House hosts incredible acts from all over the world from comedy, drama, dance, family fare, and, of course, opera. Located in the heart of Cork City, it has been a Cork cultural institution for over 160 years
Enjoy a beer or glass of wine during your show or if you don’t fancy drinking alcohol you can always just get a soft drink and a bag of sweets.
Most people go on sun holidays to recharge and reboot but then come back more exhausted than when they left.

A wellness day in Cork might be just what the doctor ordered.
