    Crawford Guest House - Cork Ireland


    Located on Western Road, with the north channel of the Lee River to its back, the Crawford Guest House was a perfect choice for our stay in Cork. There are many guest houses along Western Road just across the street from the University. We chose the Crawford because the rates seemed reasonable and the photos looked very nice on its web site. I do know that many times photo's are deceiving, but this time they were accurate. The rooms were spotless, the bathrooms were large, and the two hosts were friendly and very helpful. The guest house is only a few minutes walk from the city center also.

    Unique Quality: The breakfasts were excellent.

Is Cork Gay Friendly?

by Rina120

I will be going to Cork for approximately 6-9 months and was wondering how gay friendly it is there?
I'm in my early 30's, lesbian, single...and hope I wont be the only one of my kind for the entire time!

Thanks for any info you can give.

Don't worry. You won't be alone. I am working with a number of gay people. There are a number of gay bars and night clubs in Cork. Try Loafers and The Other Side for starters. You're going to enjoy Cork!

Travel Tips for Cork

Bilingual Gaelic and English Street Signs

by suvanki

Most of the street signs in Cork (and I guess other towns etc in Ireland) give both the name in English and Irish Gaelic. Many are quite attractive, like this one on Widderling's Lane (or Lana Widderling) in Shandon, which was cast in metal with celtic style lettering and a crest.

I was curious to find out the origins of the name of this Lane (Which as you can see from the photograph (2) is more of a set of stone steps) That connects Popes Quay and Dominic Street.

So far I haven't found any accurate info.

Anyone know the answer?


by Ekaterinburg

Cork is not the easiest place for pulling bags on wheels about. A rucksack would be better with a smaller version for carrying day to day items. Bum bags are not a good idea. A discreet money pocket worn under clothing is safer. Comfortable shoes for climbing hills and walking miles. Unfortunately rain gear is needed whatever the season. But in summer a cheap plastic mac and fold up umbrella should be fine. Toiletriesare available in all big supermarkets where they will be cheaper than in pharmacies. Obviously prescription drugs will have to be bought from a pharmacy but cold and flu remedies, anticeptic creams and other basic medical supplies are all available in supermarkets. Available in many photo shops but it would be cheaper to bring your own. The one or two camping shops are not cheap but beach wear etc., is freely and cheaply avilable in all chain stores. Supermarkets here, especially Dunnes and Tesco in the ctiy centre and suburbs, are good one stop shops for almost everything. It's probably agood idea to bring your own sun protection products because they tend to be expensive here.

Cobh - the silent witness

by evaanna

Cobh remembers not only the mass exodus of Irish emigrants but also some maritime disasters. Queenstown, as it was then called, was the last port of call of the ill-fated Titanic on her maiden voyage in 1912.
Three years later the war took its tragic toll: the Cunard liner Lusitania with 1959 people on board was struck by a torpedo from a German submarine just 16 miles off the Old Head of Kinsale. 1198 people lost their lives and the survivors were brought to Queenstown. 150 bodies were buried in mass graves in the Old Cemetery there. A monument to the victims of the Lusitania and the local fishermen who tirelessly fought for the survivors' lives can be found on the quayside.
The past is hard to forget here but Cobh is also a lively touristy town and port where luxury liners and smaller ships call in and fishing boats go about their business. Take a walk on the quayside and explore the winding narrow streets leading up to the cathedral at the top of the hill. And listen to the sound of the cathedral bells announcing new better times for this old Irish seaport.


by twojazztravelers about Boots

Boots is a nice little store to pick up most your needs such as shampoo, film, cold medicine, etc. Clerks were very helpful and everything was clean and well organized. Similar to a Walgreens or CVS pharmacy in US.
