Yeah, it’s a terrible title for a post, but Cork was a lot of fun. Our backpackers had a cool little bar downstairs and we hit the town at a neat bowling bar. The real fun came exploring the city the next day… lots of photo opportunities!
Cork has a long and often miserable history, with unemployment and poverty woven into the fabric of the city. While it’s much more prosperous now, there are still reminders of those times, especially at Cork Gaol, which now functions as a tourist attraction. Here’s some shots from around the city – enjoy! They span the pretty and scenic, to the gritty and run-down aspects of the city.
