Areas Cork

by nadalert


I just wanted some information on other areas in Cork. How far is Douglas from the city centre? Would there be regular buses to and from and how long would it take?
How far would Tivoli be from the city? And finally how far would Ballinlough be and is this a good area?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Areas Cork

Douglas is about 2 or 3 miles from the city centre with a bus service although you could walk if you're feeling energetic. Ballinlough is beside Douglas, slightly further out of the city. Tivoli in theory is closest to the city but it would probably involve a walk along the quays (not the best idea after dark) and I'm not sure it has the world's greatest bus service.

Travel Tips for Cork

They made me laugh....

by evaanna

Apart from being friendly, Irish people also have a great sense of humour. Some of the things that made me laugh were the shop signs advertising 'Baby Orchard' with 'babies growing naturally', or the 'Mainly Murder Bookstore'. And who but an Irishman would think of hanging his bike on a traffic sign in default of a better place? When you are in Cork, look for more examples of their ingenuity and love of laughter. You are bound to find more.

Dowtcha Boy - Talking the Talk

by Ekaterinburg

Cork has some very strange linguistic quirks. The Cork accent can be difficult to understand when people speak very rapidly so dont be shy about asking them to speak more slowly.

Boy or girl is attached to most sentences according to who you are speaking to as in 'all right boy' or 'hello girl'. The accent is really singsong with almost all sentences rising at the end even when there is no question being asked.

'Dowtcha Boy' is the name of a dictionary of Cork slang which is available from all bookshops. If you are staying in Cork for any lenght of time it's a good book to buy for laughs.

Port of Cork - 2000 Garden

by evaanna

The Corkonians have a lot of space for recreation: parks, gardens, the embankment of the River Lee... The city is not just green - it shimmers with all the colours of the flowering shrubs, creepers getting into every nook and cranny often high up on the walls, beautiful flower compositions on the lawns and the roundabouts. I was astonished to see palm trees - one would think they don't grow so far north but here they were and many of them too.
Watching the passing ships and boats is one of my favourite pastimes and there were endless opportunities to do that.
One of the places where you can do this to your heart's content is the colourful 2000 Garden at the Port of Cork, developed to welcome the turn of the Millennium. Situated right on the embankment at the west end of Tivoli, it commands wonderful views of the river up towards the city centre and down to Blackrock Castle and the Marina, and is a great place for a walk along its banks. Unfortunately, we stopped there only for a few minutes to take some pictures while the sun was shining. We had to stay near the car parked illegally in front of the gate so couldn't explore the garden. Try to get here on a sunny day - you are bound to enjoy it.

Best Bar in Cork...

by supersexylady about Bar Rumba

Bar Rumba is by far the best pub in Cork, with the sexiest bar staff, soulful tunes and hip-hop, house and and r'n'b supplied in copious quantities, especially at 3some every Saturday night, when 3 great DJs spin super tunes in rotation. Talent excellent to accompany the yummy cocktails... Great spot all round, and a nightclub just upstairs. Its on Tuckey St, just off the Grand Parade. Shhh....don't tell anyone.... Smart casual
