It is always hard for people visiting or even those moving to a new place to find their way around the new area. It takes time and experience to build up a list of favourite places and things to do when you are a newbie and there is nothing more frustrating than trial and error.
In light of this, after living in Cork City for 2 years, I have come up with a list of places and restaurants that I absolutely love on my days off.
1. Son of a Bun
If you want a mouthwatering burger, this is the place to go. Of all the burgers I have ever tasted, this has to be the best by a million miles.
TinyTip1: You cannot book in advance so go early enough as there might be a long wait for a table.
TinyTip2: You can choose to go to the restaurant, book your meal and pay for it even before a table comes available. I find this is handy as you don’t need to wait for your food to come once you are seated.
My best friend introduced me to this cute little burrito bar. She is a big foodie and I always trust her judgement when it comes to where to eat. I had never eaten a burrito before she took me here and now, I am addicted to them. Boojum is very a pocket friendly restaurant so if you are looking for a good burrito and don’t want to dish out much cash, this is the place to go.
3. A walk along Castle Road
This road is probably the mist picturesque road I have seen in Cork City. Where in winter, summer, autumn or spring, castle road, in my opinion is the best walking trail in the city? With a Quay (river) flowing on the side and a line of tree all perfectly arched up majestically over your head, what more could you ask of a walking trail?
In the summer, the trail busks with green trees and rays of light escaping through the brunches.
In the autumn as the less start fading from green to a series of red, yellow, black, orange, pink, magenta, and brown. It is magical.
The best part is that it leads to the Blackrock Castle where you can enjoy the picturesque view of the water from the beach or the castle.
TinyTip4: Take a €3 and enjoy a lovely cappuccino at the Castle Restaurant
TinyTip5: Lovely for dogs and children.
This is probably my favourite thing to do in Cork especially in spring and summer.
Ok lads and lasses, STOP THE LIGHTS! This is hands down the most delicious food I have EVER eaten and I have had loads of good food. I knew nothing about Nepal before that glorious day when friends of our invited us to join them for dinner at Thai Nepal Restaurant and I fell madly in love with Nepal, its culture and mostly its food. All I want to do is go to Nepal and do nothing but eat their food for ever.
This food is so good, we have been back 5 times in two weeks. Yes, that is how good the food is. It doesn’t matter who you are and what food you like, you will 99% like the food in this restaurant.
I recommend the Nepalese chicken curry and/or the butter chicken with pilao rice and garlic nun bread.
They also deliver with Deliveroo around the city area so if you fancy an evening in with take out, give them a ring.
You can thank me later.
As it is quite hidden, you wont find too many people hetr at all.
