Fitzgerald’s Park may not offer prayer facilities for Muslim visitors, but it does have plenty of secluded areas for Muslims to offer their prayers outdoors. Muslim tourists could also visit one of the few mosques in the city of Cork, such as the Cork Mosque and the Cork Muslim Foundation Mosque.
As mentioned above, Fitzgerald’s Park does have a restaurant. While visitors will be able to find variety of delicious dishes here, Muslims visiting the park will have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes as non-Halal ingredients are sure to be used. They could also bring along some snacks, as the park is ideal for picnics.
