[Ireland] Falling in love with Cork愛爾蘭之我愛上的Cork

How is Ireland? 

Honestly, before visiting Cork I always answer with an uncertain answer.  

After visiting Cork, now I will definitely recommend you to visit this lovely country, and the city you should definitely visit is Cork.

愛爾蘭好玩嗎? 

老實說,再去Cork以前我總會回答一個模稜兩可的答案,去完Cork以後我絕對會推薦你來這個國家看看,而你一定要造訪Cork這個可愛的城市。 

 

Transportation (Dubin-Cork) 

From Dublin to Cork I chose Aircoach

Price: €22 return  

Duration: 3hrs nontop

Get on: The bus stop in front of USIT(pic below)

Get Off: Patrick’s Quay of Cork (which is also where you get on the bus when you’re going back to Dublin) 

(Me with 163cm height, I’ll say their seats are spacious and comfy enough to sleep peacefully for 3 hours.) 

*You can either buy your ticket online or on the bus, I booked mine online just in case everyone chose to go to Cork at the same time as me.

交通 

從都柏林到Cork我搭乘Aircoach

票價: 來回€22

車程: 3個小時中間不停

上車: USIT前面的公車站牌

下車: Cork的Patrick’s Quay(也是你回都柏林的時候上車的地方)。

(對163公分的我來說座位空間蠻寬敞的,可以安穩的睡到Cork) 

*你可以選擇要在網路上先買票或上車再買,不過因為怕沒位子我就選擇了網路先買囉。

 Where to visit in Cork 

If you ask me what is the reason why I like Cork so much, I really can’t come up with a specific reason, it’s just the feeling the city gives that you make you feel so pleasant and at home. The cozy feeling is blended into every corner of this city, I’ll list my favorites below.

如果你問我為什麼喜歡Cork,我真的講不出什麼特別的原因,就是這個城市給你的感覺讓你覺得很平靜很溫馨,而這個溫暖的感覺已經融入了整個城市的角落,下面列出一些我最喜歡的地方。

The most well-known market in Ireland which has 200 years history. 

Recommendations:

The chocolate shop:  they have a big variety of selection, each around €1,

The Farmgate Café: I didn’t get to visit it this time since their famous bread and butter pudding are sold out, if you plan to visit be sure to go earlier.

2. 英國市場 

愛爾蘭最知名的市場有200多年歷史 

推薦

The chocolate shop: 選擇非常多,都€1左右 

The Farmgate Café: 這次沒有機會造訪因為太晚去他們有名的bread and butter pudding賣完了,如果想去的話要記得早點出發喔 

 

 

 

3. Street Art街頭藝術 

If you’re addicted to taking photos like me, I’m sure the Street arts won’t disappoint you! 

如果你跟我一樣有拍照成癮症,這些街頭塗鴉絕對不會讓你失望

It’s said as the most incomparable Cathedral in Ireland, and yes, I agree with it. 

據說是愛爾蘭最無與倫比的教堂,我同意 

Entrance Fee參觀費: €5 

 

5. Elizabeth Fort 

Free entrance 

Shoes

 

6. Cork City Gaol//Cork監獄 

You can choose to stay with their tour guide or go around yourself, they will give you a detailed guide map.  

可以選擇要跟著導覽人員或自己參觀,都會發導覽地圖給你其實介紹的蠻詳盡的 

The first thing you’re gonna see when you enter the Gaol

 

There are some specific prisoners who have to leave their clothes out of their cell before going to bed, guess why;)

有一些犯人睡前需要把衣服脫在牢房門口,猜猜為什麼;)
