The harbour City of Cork, recommended by Lonely Plant to visit http://www.lonelyplanet.com/ireland/county-cork/cork-city/things-to-do is known for its wonderful welcome, its culture, good food and great “craic” (fun).

And though it’s Ireland’s second biggest city, many Corkonians would consider it the ‘real capital’ if not the ‘people’s republic of Cork’.
It’s a city built originally on a marsh land with a long maritime history- the center itself is an island surrounded by the River Lee. And as it’s based on water, on Friday 6th of June the city will get the opportunity to see women’s match racing up close. http://www.cork.ie
