Before I went to bed had at least one Guinness and some nice G&T´s. The last thing I did before I hit the sack was to look at the map that Hertz had given me when I rented the car. I looked at the map and decided for Cork. Again I don’t know why but I had probably heard about it somewhere. Cork it had to be. Along with the key-card to open the door they had put and reduction card for the breakfast from 22 € to 15 € ad I decided that I would check it out when I woke up.
I woke up early and went down to the restaurant; I was not the only one that wanted to exploit Ireland. The breakfast was great and I had the possibility to read the newspaper; here I found out that Dublin would be crowded due to the harbour festival and the flower festival, so I kept my original plan; Cork.
I took the car, still having fun driving with the steering wheel in the wrong side, but it was no big thing. I found my GPS which I always bring and put in Cork; 264 km, I had better to get started.
Cork was a nice city, I drove a tour in the city and then decided to park the car at the harbour on Union Quay which was one of the only streets where I had found parking spaces. I walked towards the city centre enjoying the atmosphere and the livly shopping support by a group of Inca’s playing the pan-flute.I walked around trying to find a hairdresser, but in Cork they apparently concentrated on female cutting. I walked the entire city centre and found out that I was somewhat hungry and decided to walk in to a restaurant in the Huguenot quarter in Cork. The lunch was ok and I had a possibility to look into the Ireland map and again and I found the city of Crookhaven which sounded crazy in my ear.
