Cobh (Cork), Ireland Overview

A town of churches, bridges and pubs, Cork is best known for Blarney Castle where you are invited to kiss the famed stone to acquire the "gift of gab." St. Patrick Street, the town's main thoroughfare, is good for shopping and people watching. See the Shandon bells in St. Anne's church. Those who are willing to climb the 134 winding steps to the top of the steeple will be rewarded with a wondrous view of the city, harbor and hills.

If you take the Blarney Castle excursion, skip the long line to kiss the stone and explore the gardens instead. We had only two hours there, and those who wanted to kiss the stone spent almost the whole time in line. I am so glad we went through the gardens and wooded trails instead; it was unbelievably beautiful (even on a misty, rainy day) and just what I expected Ireland to be like. I almost expect to see fairies and leprechauns in the mossy glens and leafy trails.

We fell in love with Cork. It’s exactly as you would imagine a southern Irish city/town to feel like. It was warm and friendly & the craic & Guiness were great!

Love this port and people. Very fun, lots to see and do. Tears flowed when I left. Thank the staff at Kelly's. Had a visit to Wiley/McGraff opticians while in port. They were simply fabulous, and enjoyed the cab drivers back and forth being very helpful and describing their city.

Found the port to be easily accessible from the ship. The train station into Cork was right there. Several shops and eateries along with the history of the Titanic.
