County Cork Comments
This is a great city -- small, so it is easy to explore on foot. I rang the Shandon Bells (nice thing to do -- hear your tune played out over the city!). The English Market is cool to wander in and buy lunch -- I ate it in the Peace Park across the way. I like the cafe in the Crawford Art Gallery too, but my best cup of coffee was in
Coffee Roasters on Bridge Street. It's excellent if made by the owners. The Bank of the Lee walk by the river takes you to the park or the university (the Glucksman Gallery there is cool). You have to bounce on the Shakey Bridge near the Park too!
I have visited
on two trips and will go there again.
is a wonderful place to visit and to live. The drive from the capital is a little daunting! However, considering the the atmosphere and the wonderful time you'll have there, it is worth it. Just be careful of the old mineworkings - though most now are fenced off. A week is not long enough to spend there. More Americans should go there. All the best.
was the birth place of my grandfather, Daniel Harrington. I have visited the family farm a few times about ten years ago. My wife and I fell in love with the place. I would love to retire there but for the paucity of medical facilities.
is an amazing city! It's small like a town but so interesting that you need a month to see everything. The broad streets in Shandon are charming, the houses of different colours are lovely, and there are lots of pubs where you can have fun with the Irish people. Cork City Jail (Gaol) is a recommended place to visit too. No doubt, Cork is my favourite city in Ireland.
I visited with my mom, sis, and uncle way back in 1979 and am finally getting to return with my husband and daughters this summer. I can't wait.
/Ballydonegan is the the birthplace of my maternal grandmother, Anna Shea. I am so looking forward to showing my girls their heritage in such a beautiful place.
