    Cork Airport - die "Einreise"

    July 24, 2020 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Los geht's. Die Anfahrt zum Flughafen Schiphol in Amsterdam verlief trotz starkem Verkehr reibungslos. Nicht so reibungslos gestaltete sich dann das Parken auf dem Langzeitparkplatz, denn der Automat verweigerte trotz bestehender Reservierung die Kreditkarte zur Einfahrt. Nach einigem Hin und Her konnte das Auto aber dann geparkt werden. Am Flughafen selbst war aufgrund Corona wenig los. Kaum Flüge, kaum Läden offen, teilweise Fluganullierungen. Unser Flug fand erfreulicherweise statt und war pünktlich. In Cork selbst mussten wir bei der Passkontrolle aufgrund der dort erwünschten häuslichen Quarantäne von 14 Tagen unsere ausgefüllten Kontaktformulare abgeben. Der Kontrolleur gab uns halb augenzwinkernd zu verstehen, dass wir uns doch bitte an diese Quarantäne halten sollen.....OK, verstanden, selbstverständlich, Officer, haha...also schnell Mietwagen abgeholt und nach einem kurzen Zwischenstopp bei Eimears Eltern weiter nach Blarney gefahren, wo wir todmüde um halb eins irischer Zeit (also halb zwei deutscher Zeit) ins Bett gefallen sind.Read more

    Von Clifden nach Cork

    August 7, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Heute ging es 300 km über Buckelpiste, Landstraße und Autobahn (!) von Clifden zurück nach Cork. Die Innenstadt von Cork ist eine einzige Einkaufsmeile. Es gibt aber auch eine kleine Festung und eine schöne Kathedrale. Soeben haben wir das Auto zurückgeben und gehen jetzt etwas Essen. Morgen geht es dann über Paris zurück nach München.Read more

    Cork to Cardiff

    October 5, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Our last day in Ireland so decided to go as far south as we could from Cork. Took the bus to Kinsale at 10am and 50 minutes later arrived in the lovely seaside town. It was sunny by the time we arrived and quite warm as we strolled around the town and up the roads surrounding it. There were many arty little shops and some beautiful sights of the harbour. It did seem quite a touristy village, but much had been left untouched. The brightly coloured houses, pubs and shops were everywhere and were featured in much of the artwork for sale. After sandwiches at a quirky little cafe and an ice cream further along the road we caught the bus back to Cork. We taxied out to the airport being very cautious about the time we needed to check in so consequently after a very quick ride, we were there with almost 3 hours to fill in before our flight to Cardiff. While relieved to see our bags still met the 20kg required we were disappointed by poor service and food even though the airport had been awarded best airport in Europe in its class! Our flight was 35 minutes long and we were at our hotel right in the centre of town by 8 15. As we have such a short time in Cardiff we went out straight away and wandered around the main streets for an hour before finding a lovely bar for a drink. First impressions are that the CBD had huge wide traffic-free streets, all very clean and modern with every thing big-shops, signage, sculptures. Even the church bells which were ringing were extra loud. Only downside seemed to be a huge number of homeless people. Looking forward to spending tomorrow morning here.Read more
