    Cork to Cardiff

    October 5 in Ireland

    Our last day in Ireland so decided to go as far south as we could from Cork. Took the bus to Kinsale at 10 am 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 20 kg 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 main area is 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
