Relocation

by kittencat24

Hi All,

Am currently looking at relocating with my parents from Bedfordshire, England to Cork. Would anyone know how easy it is to obtain work in administration/reception in and around the city centre? Also is Cork and surrounding area a good location for people in their 20's to live?

Cheers

Well people in Cork consider that area to be an independent republic! I'm sure if you keep posting this query you will get responses from some Lee-siders! Personally we always liked Cork and it is a very pretty place to live, especially for young people, there are lots and lots of young people living there and there are always lively events, whether music or whatever taking place, and a bit of a carnaval atmosphere about the place on any random weekend in Summer ..

as for jobs, well you could check out a few websites: http://www.jobs.ie

is as good a place as any to start ..

Plenty of jobs in most part of the country at the moment (another website is www.monster.ie) and Cork has a lively night life and a good University. As previous poster mentioned, Corkonians are understandably proud of their fine city so no doubt one of them will be along to tell you what are the hotspots of the moment. Personally have only visited but enjoy it very much and nearby you have some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland.

Hi, im a 20 year old guy living in Cork all my life. Its a great place. Theres plenty of work and the two sites posted by the two guys are fairly good too. Also the local papers are the Evening Echo and the Irish Examiner, google them and you might find some free ads for jobs. In general, the place is constantly developing so ya, it should be handy enough to find a job.

As for the nightlife, I think its great. Theres loadsa clubs and pubs all over the city for all ages. If you like to go out you'l love it here. Tuesday and thursday nights are the best student nights and its much cheaper too but most clubs will be charging about 10 euro at the door on a friday or sat night. There are plenty of late bars open til 2 aswel though.

As for the city in general it boasts the University College of Cork (UCC) renowned for excellence and it also houses the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI), europes most advanced maritime college. Theres plenty of shops and restaurants in the city and the sorrounding areas are beautiful. I think the thing youl have most trouble with is understanding our accent!

Travel Tips for Cork

Gaelic

by Tripack


Síolraíonn na teangacha Gaelacha ón Sean-Ghaeilge a labhraítí in Éirinn, agus ba teanga scríofa í ón 8ú Aois agus roimhe. Rinne Gaeil as Éirinn ruaigeanna, agus ina dhiaidh sin churadar fúthu in iardheisceart na hAlban. Thugadar an Ghaeilge leo, agus de réir a chéile ba í an Ghaeilge an gnáththeanga sa chuid is mó d'Albain go dtí an 17ú chéad.

The Goidelic languages, (also sometimes called, particularly in colloquial situations, the Gaelic languages or collectively Gaelic), historically formed a dialect continuum stretching from the south of Ireland, through the Isle of Man, to the north of Scotland. There are three modern Goidelic languages: Irish (Gaeilge), Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig), and Manx (Gaelg). However, older versions of literary Scottish Gaelic and Irish were similar enough to have been considered dialects of a single language.

Left Luggage - head for the Bus Station.

by aaaarrgh

If you are looking for somewhere to leave your bags while you sightsee, head for the Bus Station. They have a Left Luggage Office opened 7 days a week (but shorter opening hours on the weekend).

I think it was about €3.60 per bag for a day.

The Bus Station is to the northeast of Cork city centre, next to the main river.

There are signs pointing towards a Left Luggage Office at the train station. However, the office there closed down, so don't bother hunting around for one there!!

West Cork

by orlikins

West Cork is one of the most scenic parts of Ireland. The main Towns in this area would be Bandon, Kinsale, Skibbereen, Glengariff and Castletownbere. I dont know it really well personally - apart from Kinsale, but hey, I can always visit some other time!

Toys and Gifts

by Ekaterinburg about Pinocchio's

Everything about this shop is delightful, from its outside decor and window displays, to its eclectic selection of toys and gifts inside. This is the place to buy something special, be it toys for children or bigger children( AKA adults). Most of the toys are wooden and handmade..

Cork has a huge bus station...

by DAISYCHAIN

Cork has a huge bus station where there are coaches coming into and out of the city every 30 minutes or so.It is probably the best way of getting into the city without the hustle of trying to find a parking space. Black cabs are quite reasonable and can be found close to the bus station.
Definately by walking, you can admire the tall buildings, spot out the bars and restaurants you fancy trying out and have fun getting lost in the back alleys!!!
