We will be cruising to Cork and Dublin from Southampton in May, any suggestion what to do in Cork?

We have been to Dublin before and we are planning to walk by ourself and go to some pubs we have been to before. Will the ship (NCL Jade) dock close to town?

What is worth seeing in Cork? We might take a short shipexcursion which take us to the countryside and then walk by ourself.

Hi Erik, I hope you are keeping well.

Just a heads up on your Cork stop, please check where the ship docks, it is usually in a town called Cobh off to the south east about 10-15 miles away, so it's certainly not a walkable distance, although the area is pleaseant enough, albeit remote, to walk around.

I remember Cork as being a vibrant city, but spent most of the time in bars tasting the various versions of Stout - all very nice.

If the ship is calling into Cobh and you wanted to do your own thing, there is a train service running directly from the port into Cork. But the port of Cobh also has a lot of Titanic related history and a few good bars

All the best,

Alan & Katrina

Thank you Alan and/or Katrina.

I probably have more questions to you later, since our cruise starts in Southampton.
