Never believe platform indicators on Irish Railways. For they don't actually match reality...
Posts about "Cork"
The day after visiting Blarney Castle, we decided to explore the delights of Cork town. In the previous day and a half we'd managed to see little bar sitting in some pubs and visiting the tourist information centre, so this seemed a good idea.
It was in Iceland that I first realised I never wanted to do a coach tour holiday. As we drove round in our hire car, we'd be overtaken by manically speeding coaches which would arrive, thrust 60 people through the door of an attraction. The tourists would then swarm through the place, before being herded back out again about half an hour later.
When we were researching Ireland, one of the places that stood out was Cork, down in the south of the country. A good pub culture, Blarney Castle and lots more. It seemed to be the place to go!
