#TravelTuesday Cork Ireland

Todays #TravelTuesday post celebrates the city of Cork Ireland. Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland and it’s history dates back to the 6th century. The Lee River splits and winds gently through the city with the city center located on the island in between its channels. The river ends at Cork harbour which is one of the world’s largest natural harbours. Cork was our destination for our first night in Ireland. We landed in Dublin, rented a car (left hand drive) and drove through stunning green countrysides as far as the eye could see for 3 hours. We did make a few stops along the way, but the coziness of Cork city welcomed us with open arms after a long hard day of travel. We dined along the market square, and indulged with fragrant, full bodied wines and fresh seafood. It was a great beginning to a very memorable trip.
