  1. Hola! I’ve been following your site for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the great work!

  2. My English husband and our 15month old and I (american) are moving to cork in a week. Where is a good area to begin looking for accomodation? On a map you can only tell so much! We like quiet and safer areas…

  3. What a great blog. Love it.
    Here’s a piece I found from My Ireland Tour. It shows old photos of Cork alongside new photos taken from the exact location. Really interesting to see the difference over time. Some of the old photos are over 100 years old. In one photo of The Grand Parade (from 1948) you can see, where Bishop Lucey Park is now, a line of buildings. Strange to think that buildings made way for a green area, usually the other way around now a days.

  4. Fantastic blog. My wife and I are planning a 9 night trip to Cork the end of February 2017. Your tips will all be very helpful. Keep up the great work.

  5. Great Blog and very useful. I wonder if you know anyone that will knit sweaters at a reasonable price ?

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
