Cork to Wterford: 125 kms., 1 h 45 m. and around 10,09 € of fuel

Re: distance from Cork to Waterford

by Waoife

Assuming you're talking Cork city to Waterford city (rather than some town in either county) then it should take you around 1 and a half hours depending on traffic. The road between Youghal and Dungarven can be very foggy at times so obviously that would make the trip a bit longer.

There are road works on the Cork/Waterford road at the moment as you exit Cork. Although I've been driving that road for 30 years now, they still confused me.

Travel Tips for Waterford

Local Radio

by SabrinaSummerville

Looking at the tip guides I am unsure whether or not I am posting this tip in the right place - let's see.

For visitors to the City it would be a good idea to tune into Waterford Local Radio (WLR FM) (broadcasting on 97.5 FM). This is a locally owned and locally run station and broadcasts a lot of interesting and useful local information, to include historical stories, information on local gigs, traffic information, interviews with local celebrities and dignatories etc.

There's another local station, Beat FM, but that concentrates more on modern music than talk or information shows.

Check out Reginald's Tower....

by Nobbe

Check out Reginald's Tower. The tower dates from the late twelfth century and is the most historic urban monument in Ireland. The heritage museum houses two collections; artefacts from the Viking and Medieval periods; and collections of decorated charters and civic regalia.

The beaches....without a car,...

by Grainne

The beaches....without a car, you can get a local bus to Tramore, where you can ignore the slightly tacky town and concentrate on the fantastic beach. Or, if you have a car, Woodstown beach, on the way to Dunmore. My favourite..wild, beautiful, and you can see across the bay to Co. Wexford.

Delightfully Different

by SabrinaSummerville about Arlington Lodge

When I was growing up I would often pass a beautiful old, and semi derelict, building that used to be the home of the Waterford Roman Catholic Bishops for over 200 years. It was so sad to see such a lovely building just rotting away, so I was thrilled to hear that it had been bought by the brother of a colleague and was being transformed to a luxury small hotel and restaurant.

The property has been lovingly restored and now houses a country-house type small hotel and excellent restaurant. That saying, I use the expression "country house" quite loosely, as it is situated five, or at most ten minutes walk from the City centre. However, it is surrounded by a very high wall and the gardens, though small, are very prettily laid out. Therefore, throughout the property there is a feeling of provacy and country-ness.

Last night I dined in the Robert Paul restaurant. I hadn't been there for a couple of years, as they had changed chefs, but now Richie is back and the food is divine.

The restaurant is small and intimate, set in the conservatory area of the house looking out on the pretty gardens and the fountain. The table settings are silver service and the service itself is efficiently and very pleasantly provided.

First of all we had drinks in the lounge, which is very tastefully furnished with carefully chosen antiques. There is also a seperate bar, but I like to take my pre dinner drink in this lounge area as I find it a more pleasant room.

My sister and I opted for the six course meal at Euro52 a head, whereas my two nieces went for the four course menu at Euro32 a head. There is also an early bird option at Euro28 if you order before 7.30pm. No matter which menu you opt for the selection is varied and all dishes are beautifully presented and very tasty indeed. I have new favourites here from time to time, but my current fave would have to be the game platter. Last night this consisted of rabbit roulade dressed with home made tomato chutney, duck breast on mashed turnip with cassis glaze, venison sausage dressed with a red wine jus on a bed of cous cous stuffed savoy cabbage, and finally confit of duck leg glazed with honey and blackcurrant on a potato rosti. It was absolutely amazing - and so filling!

Great Food in Georgian Setting

by SabrinaSummerville about 33 The Mall

Unfortunately, this restaurant closed in the Spring of 2007. The building is presently on the market for sale (October 2007). You may be interested in reading on for the history of this very beautiful bow shaped building.

For many years I had been looking at a derelict but once beautiful ond building on The Mall in Waterford. The building was unusual in that it was entirely bow-shaped from top to bottom. The story was that someone had jumped from the top window and so it had lain derelict since. I don't know how true that story is, but I was thrilled several months ago to note that it was being renovated and reconstructed.

I was even happier still to discover that the developers (two local brothers) had joined forces with the owners of the incredible Coast restaurant in Tramore to establish a new style of eatery for Waterford - this is known as 33 The Mall.

The restaurant is situated on four levels in this tall, narrow building, and is decorated with perfect Georgian charm. The tables range in size and are far enough from each other so that you don't feel everyone can hear your conversation.

Service is brisk. You are immediately seated and brought your menu, a drinks order is taken and delivered, and your food arrived very soon after it is ordered.

The menu is great in that you can order what you want from it in whatever combination - if you just want a bowl of soup, then that's all you have to order.

However, it's just about impossible to stop at the soup. Try the fresh crab, or the salad of crispy bacon avocado and prawns, or even the home made fish and chips.

You can go for lunch or dinner. Reservations are not required but are advisable.

As for the desserts - how about raspberries with a hot white chocolate sauce???? Definitely the raspberries with hot chocolate sauce - the contrast in flavours between the cold tart raspberries and the smooth, sweet, warm sauce. Mmmmm.

As a little addendum to this post I must add that my sister went to this place last week and was really disappointed in her meal - she felt that everything had been pre-prepared, then frozen or chilled. Not so good that time:-(
