The Beauty of County Cork

I just had to share this video of the county I live in. It was posted online by Cork County Council and if you’ve been following my blog you might recognize some of the places featured, ‘Stone Mad’ in Kinsale and ‘Titanic’ in Cobh, among them. If you’re planning a trip to Ireland or if you live here and fancy a ‘staycation’ at home, this video will give you a taste of what’s on offer in Ireland’s largest county. Enjoy πŸ™‚Β Like Ireland Love Cork

    Timely posting Jean… Grace & I are in the negotiation phase of planning our holidays across the Pond for this fall. We have figured out landing in Southampton, and a month later leaving from Southampton. The 4 weeks in between are still sketchy. I’m holding out for a bit of time in Ireland and Wales… after that, I don’t care!! πŸ™‚

    I remember kissing the Blarney Stone in 1986! It may have bestowed me the gift of gab as on returning home after my holidays I found out I had a job!

  8. Haven’t been to Ireland since the mid-seventies, but I told my husband the other day it would be a great place to visit. And the people there speak English (sort of!) Ha, couldn’t resist!

    • In my teens I visited Cork for the first time (I grew up in Dublin) and when I asked an old gentleman for directions I couldn’t understand a word he said. I know he was speaking English but in an accent I couldn’t fathom. So your comment made me laugh, Janet. πŸ™‚

    Fabulous video Jean, it all looks so fabulous. We’re actually planning a trip to Ireland in September and are trying to sort out where we want to go and what we want to see. Probably got 10 days but seems so much to see.

    • The east of the country is great for history lovers and the west is great for nature enthusiasts. But both have a mix of each. The center if Ireland has both, too, and plenty of lakes and rivers. You’ll have plenty to choose from, that’s for sure. But Ireland is a small country so it should be quite easy to cover a lot of ground in those ten days. Have a lovely time. πŸ™‚
