Cork City and travel in Ireland

Joel Rhodes talks about Cork City and travelling from Cork.

There are so many things that I really enjoyed about Cork City:

  • Beautiful city
  • Easy to walk everywhere
  • Warm and hospitable people
  • Not very big, but offers what most large cities do
  • The English Market and good food
  • Plenty of pubs
  • Festivals year round 
  • Frequent bus and train service around Ireland
  • Felt safe and at home

During the spring term, there is plenty of time to explore Ireland and other parts of Europe. Many Irish students go home over the weekends, and campus is quiet. Take advantage of weekends to take day or overnight trips to explore Ireland. I went to Cobh, Blarney, Kinsale, Rock of Cashel, Waterford, Dublin, the Ring of Kerry, Doolin, Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, Galway, the Aran Islands, Connemara, Donegal, and Northern Ireland. Be sure to also go to GAA matches.  Gaelic football and hurling are loads of fun to watch.
