    Things to pack for Cork in October

    by suvanki Updated Nov 8, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: A case on wheels or Rucksac etc for your main load plus a day sac to carry camera equipment, guide book etc

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In October come prepared for rain-soft rain or wet rain!
    During the weekend I was here it rained-so waterproof jacket or umbrella is advised.
    If intending to walk arouind Cork- comfy shoes are a must! It's quite a compact city to walk around, but you can come across some steep streets and Church towers to climb!
    Also, the pavements can become quite slippery when it's raining.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Plenty of pharmacies in Cork, but bring prescription medicines. Consider cold remedies etc.
    Oh and hangover cures in case of overindulging in 'The Black Stuff'!

    Photo Equipment: As much as you can carry- Cork and the surrounding areas are very photogenic! There are photography shops here too

    Left Luggage - head for the Bus Station.

    by aaaarrgh Written May 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: If you are looking for somewhere to leave your bags while you sightsee, head for the Bus Station. They have a Left Luggage Office opened 7 days a week (but shorter opening hours on the weekend).

    I think it was about €3.60 per bag for a day.

    The Bus Station is to the northeast of Cork city centre, next to the main river.

    There are signs pointing towards a Left Luggage Office at the train station. However, the office there closed down, so don't bother hunting around for one there!!
