After a long time of traveling, we finally made it to Cork, Ireland where rain welcomed us on our way to our hotel.
After a couple of hours of rest, we adventured into Cork city. We visited a sweets shop, a bookstore and had dinner at the Woodford Bourne and Co. Pub. The fish and chips and fish cakes were delicious!
After walking among cathedrals, monuments, bridges and wonderful Irish accents, we decided to go back to our hotel to rest some more. A gregarious Irish taxi driver with a self-proclaimed "gift of gab" lovingly told us about his city and his people during the ride back. Today we are traveling to Skibbereen, where we will finally get to explore Lough Hyne.
