Cork has a wealth of amenities on offer. Whilst only a secondary city to the capital – Dublin – The beautiful historic city Of Cork has the benefit of second rate prices and a vastly greater availability of accommodation. The lesser population lends to cleaner streets and a more tranquil atmosphere as well.

Cork is a ‘walkable’ city. You can enjoy many of the sights, sounds, smells and taste on foot. However, do not forget to bring an umbrella with you, as it can tend to rain quite frequently. I recommend visiting the English Market, where there are 100s of stalls to peruse. Enjoy!

There’s no better introduction to Cork than the food scene that is the fantastic English Market. Cork is a rainy place so you should visit the fanatic museums and art galleries. The people are really friendly and love to help anyway they can. The county cork is the “Rebel county”, a name given by King Henry VII of England for its support of a man claiming to be Richard, Duke of York. Cork also has really beautiful cathedrals.

While it is not the sprawling city that Dublin is, Cork is nonetheless large. Commuting time to work is usually 30 minutes or more. Land prices, and therefore rental accommodation, are higher than in any other city. As with all Irish cities, expect a warm welcome, as the locals are friendly and helpful.

Cork is in the south of Ireland. It is a small city. It is possibly more accurate to call it a big town. Cork is steeped in history, with many historical sites to visit, and galleries, and artisan shops dotted around the city center.
