  1. I wonder with a hard Brexit looking more and more likely, will Irish ferries try an Ireland - Spain line with this ship ? ( As for Cork, I hope BF have no plans to cut & run, the PA is a lovely ship, a pleasure to travel on. BF wins for me anyday - if the service was cut I'd go landbridge via UK rather than any of the other incumbents as imho there's no substitute for quality! ) - now I've that off my chest, please carry-on!
  2. Roscoff to Spain?

    Never knew you could travel Roscoff - Spain, if that Gijon-St Nazaire route returns then this would take a fair chunk off the drive back.

    MV Duchesse Anne is a previous guise - http://www.irishships.com/mvconnacht.html She's standing the test of time by the look of her today.
  4. Hooked - Salmon Angling

    There's good salmon angling to be had below the Inniscarra Dam , some 7 miles from Cork City Centre. http://www.gamefishireland.com/inniscarrapermits.htm
  5. Stargazing - Blackrock Castle

    An interesting visit - a short bus ride from the city centre - has a nice cafe too. http://www.bco.ie/
  6. Good write-up on Roscoff

    I love arriving into Roscoff from Cork - our first stop is always the bakery for some authentic French bread & pastries - what better way to start the hols! I found this detailed piece whilst browsing recently - http://www.theparisfeast.com/2016/12/roscoff-small-town-of-character-of.html
  7. Pasty Heaven

    I haven't been here for a few years now but I still dream of getting my hands on one! http://ivordewdney.co.uk/
  8. Food Market - The English Market

    For all you foodies, it's well worth a walk around - http://www.englishmarket.ie/
  9. Church Bells - Ring the Bells at Shandon

    Once you've climbed to the tower , there's a great view out across the city & hinterland. Located just a few mins walk from the City Centre - http://www.shandonbells.ie/
  10. Go To Gaol - Old Cork City Gaol

    This is an interesting place with lots of history, I've been there a few times and it's only 15/20 walk from the City Centre. http://corkcitygaol.com/
  11. A trip to Camden Fort - Cork Harbour

    I've never been here since they've opened it to the public. From what I've heard it's well worth a visit & I hope to visit this summer. http://www.camdenfortmeagher.ie/
  12. Visit Spike Island - Cork Harbour

    If you're in the Cork Area - a trip to Spike Island is well worth a visit, you could easily spend 2/3 hrs there. I visited last summer & it was well worth the entry/boat fare. http://spikeislandcork.ie/
  13. Brittany Ferries 2016 Results

    And quite rightly , too, I would imagine it's quite a profitable route. We ( family & I ) go via Cork-Roscoff every summer, It's always very busy, outward & return with a sizeable French percentage of passengers too.
