    More industrial than anything else..

    My friend and I had just come from places like Dublin, Kilkenny, Cashel, Wicklow, etc before arriving in Cork, so we'd seen a good variety of Irish sites and scenery. Cork was mildly disappointing at first..not as pretty as other cities, the atmosphere was a bit more apprehensive than say, Dublin. We warmed up to it though...there are some nice churches around, some great bars and shopping areas..not a lot of major historic sights, but it's cheap to bus out to Blarney if you want.

    A very damaged city but with a great vibe. Not much to do in the city itself, but we loved the Shandon streets.

    Insider Tip:Records and Relics on Lancaster quay is a very nice shop with strange stuff inside and a lovely man. Next to it, Reidys's vault bar is just the nices pub for a warm diner after a long day's walk. And to have a pint, rane Lane is the place to be. It's like a mall of pubs and music.

    Not much to do compared with Dublin

    Nice city. I didn't find much to do so I went to Cobh and Blarney Castle for day trips. Which were lovely.

    Insider Tip:Shandon is a nice area to walk around.

    Cork is after Dublin the 2nd biggest city in Ireland. It's a lovely place to stay, do some shopping, going out and have a drink.
