fancy dress and nightlife in cork

by nbarber76

hi i am coming to cork on paddy's day weekend with a group of friends and we wanted to know the best places to visit whilst there. we were also thinking of dressing up to make the whole experience a little more fun, how will this go down with the locals?
we are all aged between 20 - 30 and are looking for fun with the locals

No personal recommendations for Paddy's day nightlife. The streets will be crowded and after the pubs close, noisy and rowdy and potentially dangerous.
Dressing up?Depends on what you're thinking of dressing up as and whwere you're from. This is a weekend, when fuelled by loads of drink,people become a little more nationalistic than usual.
You can check listings online in the March edition of'Whazon'.
All the pubs and clubs will be packed on that night so you should be spoiled for choice.

Well I presume ye're gona dress up in Irish themed costumes, so given that it's paddy's day and all, there shouldn't be a problem. Now dressing up as a leprechaun any other day of the year is a different story.....!!!

Here's a link regarding Cork's nightlife:

Travel Tips for Cork

by kathycollins

visit Garinish Island. The Duchas-owned gardens are reached by a short ferry ride from Glengariff. Have your camera ready to take pictures of the seals off seal island...I wasn't ready and my pics are all out of focus - but it was fun watching the seals swim and bask in the sun! The gardens are lovely - even in early April before the colors turn vibrant!

by drxym

Cork is home to the Murphys and Beamish breweries which means the pubs have a greater choice of drink than anywhere else on the Guinness monopolized island. These breweries produce many brands under licence plus of course their namesake brands of stout that many drinkers prefer to Guinness. Beamish stout has a complex sweet/fruity flavour and Murphy's is a smooth non-bitter drink. In my opinion both are better than Guinness but Murphy's is my favourite!

Road Bowling

by roamingpaddy

A sport that is kind of unique to Cork is Road Bowling,well almost unique as it is played in county Armagh as well. It is played on country minor roads around Cork City and in the county as well. A game is called a "score" and it is played with a 28 ounce iron bowel.A score is played over a certain distance of the road and the person to finish in less throws is the winner. A lot of money can be bet on a score and it is all done in cash and no receipts are given or asked for! :)

English Market

by orlikins about English Market

Some excellent shopping bargains in the English market in Cork.
I HAVE to go in there whenever I am in Cork. Basically, it sells local produce (meats, fish, cheeses, black pudding, veggies etc). There is an increase in the type of imported goods they sell there too. I remember seeing olives, French cheeses (Cork has traditionally had great links with France), Spanish chorizos.

It is probably safe to say it is more expensive than going to a local supermarket, but this is heaven for foodies and they're not going to care how much things cost as long as it tastes great! Lots of fresh & organic foods, fish and some cool artwork and vintage clothes.

Cork by Air

by Ekaterinburg

Cork has its own airport 6km outside the centre just past the Kinsale Road roundabout. The national airline Aer Lingus flies to Cork from the UK, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Lagos, Munich, Warsaw, Berlin, Nice, Malaga and Barcelona. Ryan Air do four flights a day to Stanstead and two flights to Liverpool and Easyjet also fly to Gatwick from here. During the sumer there are charter flights coming in from all the main European tourist destinations and sometimes there are flight-only options to be had here, especially with Budget Travel. From the US or Canada there are no direct flights to Cork but Ryan Air and Aer Arann both offer reasonably priced connecting flights to and from Dublin. To cater for the large Polish population in Cork, Polish budget airlines now do regular flights from Gdansk, Warsaw and Katowice, in and out of Cork. For a full list of airlines and routes in and out of Cork airport, check the website,
