    Kinsale Favorites

    After we visited Charles Fort, we parked in town, walked all through the town and a local park, and ate lunch. While we were looking at the harbor during lunch we saw the head of an animal pop up. At first I thought it was an otter, but we realized eventually that it was a seal! After lunch we drove across the harbor to James Fort. After we visited...

  • Cork - Irelands 2nd largest city

    Cobh harbour, in the south of the town might be interesting for you, as it served as the main-port for people immigrating to the USA in the 19th and 20th century The town Cork is great for shopping, but I mostly go into the landscapes and did not spend a lot of time in big cities.

  • Cobh

    Go to Cobh. It's a little town close to Cork at the sea with a lot of colourful houses, a nice port and a huge beautiful church! The storm! We went there in January and it was really stormy (see picture). Unfortunately we had to take the ferry the following night..... I think I'm still a bit sick ;-)
