Re: Bus services

According to www.buseireann.ie , bus number 240 goes from Cork (Parnell Place Bus Station) to Ballycotton tomorrow at 09:00, 15:30, and 18:15. I think it's a fairly short walk from Cork train station to the bus station but I'm not sure.

Travel Tips for Cork

Cork's informative Taxi Co-op

by aaaarrgh

The one advantage of catching a taxi in Cork is their tourist information service. The Cork Taxi Co-operative have produced their own thick guide to the area - "A Taxi~man's Guide to Cork" (so I guess there are no Taxi-women on their payroll!!).

The information inside the booklet covers some useful things you will need to know. And the booklet is free, of course (unlike the taxi-fare). A canny idea, anyway, having a car door full of tourist information leaflets!

For that white knuckle ride experience, the taxi driver may take the map and show you where you are, even marking it with a pen while driving at 40kph. Aaaaaaarrrggghhh!!

Some classic stereotyping such as "all good taxi drivers should know where there's a good pint" and "all our taxi drivers are good golfers, and can be sometimes persuaded to park up and join in".

Oh, I think I am rapidly beginning to dislike it.

Meanwhile, the official Tourist Information Office on Grand Parade is full of postcards, mugs, fridge magnets and gifts to purchase, but very little free information, apart from a sheet of paper with a city map. All the guides seem to cost money.

Fortunately little chance of meeting a Cork taxi driver in here - thay are all busy swilling pints or spending their free time on the golf course ;-)

The Guinness Jazz Festival!...

by Spader

The Guinness Jazz Festival! During a few days in October Cork is jammin';) Some say it's the biggest event in Cork during the whole year, bigger than any holiday. In every pub and every theatre and concerthall you will find jazz and blues. Big names go there and amateures aswell. Book accomodation several month ahead if not a year. Hotels to hostels are packed these days. If you're not interested in this you probably should visit Cork another time, it's all jazz!

There's a nice park, the name...

by dracko

There's a nice park, the name of which I forget, over on the west side of mid-city, along the shore of the North Channel, right next to the Cork Public Museum. It's a nice park to relax in, and looks absolutely stunning when the flowers are in bloom. Check out the water lillies in the little pond in the middle if they're blooming too...

DRINKING HOURS

by DAO


OK. Yes you can drink 24 hours a day in the privacy of your home or hotel here in Cork. If you want to drink in one of the numerous your hours are slightly restricted. The general pub hours are 10:30am to 11:30pm Monday through Thursday plus 30 minutes ‘drinking up time’. Drinking up time? Yep, they don’t make you gulp down your pint of beer a minute after they pour it for you. You have plenty of time to drink that last drink before you have to go. Fridays and Saturdays are 10:30am until 12:30am and Sundays are Noon until 11pm with the 30 minute extra time so you can drink at a leisurely pace.

Enjoy!
