Cork City is smaller than Dublin, but to Cork-citizenry there is no remote possibility comparison; Cork to them is simply superior. Natives claim their beloved Cork provides all the conveniences of a city but retains its small-town, leisurely pace of life. A thriving arts culture in Cork includes the Crawford Art Gallery, one of the most important galleries outside Dublin and the refurbished Cork Opera House, packs sell-out seasons.
Cork's real draw is its fabulous dining scene. A foodie's paradise: more good restaurants per capita than anywhere in Ireland. For first time Cork visitors, this city offers a delight for all the senses.
