You’ll be Okay in Cork

Honestly, I was a bit worried about moving to Cork. Dublin’s where it’s all happening, isn’t it (everyone else who lives in parts of Ireland that aren’t Dublin, cringe here)? People say some un-encouraging things about Cork sometimes (they say it’s small, they say there’s not much going on and they question it’s claim to fame as the food capital of Ireland).

I was un-encouraged myself when I realised that quite a high percentage of the bloggers around the city appeared to be interested specifically in make-up and hairdo’s, as revealed by a little bit of Googling. Those things are fun, sure, but I’m a pretty low maintenance person so I wasn’t particularly enthralled by the thought of being surrounded by people covered in fake tan, hair dye and dramatic eyebrow styles.

What I wanted to see was locals blogging about visiting a farm in the nearby countryside, hipster restaurants, the red panda at Fota, outings to Cobh and craft beer tasting. These bloggers are yet to be discovered. It’s ok though, I’ve got time.

Turns out I that I didn’t really have to worry about Cork being too much of a small-town-vibe. So far, I love Cork.¬†Without further ado, here are a few more photos taken in my first few weeks of living in Cork.
