Streets of Cork

Cork has a vibe. Between the remains of this ageing harbour and the attempts to keep it as a cultural hotspot, the life in this town suddenly becomes timeless.

Cork, sky, streets and river

I have found these view from Cork sad, dark, but also joyful and restful.

Blackrock Castle – Cork city

Let’s make a quick tour in the area of Cork, where a small but noticeable fortification has now been converted to an Observatory. Ideally reached with a bicycle, this castle has a restaurant as well and the coastal walk is actually beautiful.

UCC and surroundings

Cork without the University College could be like Harry Poter without Hogwarts or The Shining without the Overlook hotel…. lame wouldn’t it be? Anyway I leave these photos and will walk later on the other side of the city.

The Old Head of Kinsale Lighthouse

This lighthouse is not always accessible. A private golf course however allows an organised tour to visit this unique place once a year. The association has a top class sent of organisation and can manage thousands of visitors. If you cannot visit this beauty you can still try the museum.

Fota – Cork – Ireland

Between a Parc and a reserve, Fota is a perfect occasion to go out. I’m not defending it but the area is often sunny and quiet. This feel specially less oppressive of the inhabitant. You will also be surprised by the mix of animals.

A short series of pics from the real one

Let’s appreciate Cork like one of these Van Gogh’s paints: first impression is a bit meh as an old overused harbour but if you slow down and look twice, details appears. Wait a bit longer and little secrets and hidden treasure can be noticed. Colors here are not modified, and are fit perfectly well with the Young […]

Kinsale and the Fort

A quick round in the South Coast and you will easily find this small but charming town. Lively colours, street concerts, enjoy the summer in Kinsale.
