36 Hours in Cork – New York Times Article

July 4, 2009 by Evin

Last week, Cork City was featured in 36 Hours in Cork, Ireland, a New York Times article written by Michael McDermott. Initially, I was thrilled to see Cork City receive such attention, but was a little disappointed in the article content. Though he mentioned a few favorites (St. Anne’s Shandon Bells, Franciscan Well, The English Market, Sin E, Fitzgerald Park, Crawford Gallery, and The Pavilion), so many others were missing. Understandable since the New York Times is a print newspaper so if this ran in their Sunday travel section space would have been limited. Thankfully, blogs don’t have the same limitations so I have been inspired to post more travel itineraries from now on.

Before starting on that, I want to warn anyone who read Mr. McDermott’s article that there is one thing to be aware of – Church of St. Anne Shandon is open 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Easter through November (10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. November through Easter) and strongly encourages visitors to enter at least 30 minutes prior to closing for the full experience (ringing the bells then climbing up to the top of the bell tower for a stunning view). Arriving at 4:30 p.m. as the NYT article suggests may leave you being turned away in winter or rushed for time.

More travel ideas and itineraries coming at regular intervals!


Enough about me. What are you thinking?
