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.

We visited Blarney Castle with a drive through Cork. The grounds of the castle were beautiful, but the line to kiss the Blaney Stone was 2 hours long. People had advised that it is really over rated. I'm glad we did this once but would not do it again. Frankly we loved Cobb and could have spent our entire time there. Beautiful, lively Irish village and the ship docks right there

We docked in Cobh and took the train to Cork... the people were wonderful! Visited the English Market, a little shopping and took in the sights. Upon our return to Cobh, we found it just charming and beautiful!
