Monday I arrived in Cork City, where I checked in at my hostel, had my laundry made and took a walk through the city. I once again stoped at the tourist information for things to do in Cork. Turns out, they have an old English Market, a castle, some churches and a college that you can visit.
Then I found a guided tour through West Cork, for only 28€ for students! A day long adventure through the nature of West Cork, visiting some very lovely places and cites.
I booked one tour for Tuesday. It started at 8:45 in the morning and we first went to a small national park where the River Lee has its source.
After that we drove to the Mizen Head, where a signal house was used in the past to warn ships of the cliffs. There I got wet to the bones, as it was raining and very windy. But the view of the cliffs was worth every raindrop!
Following the Mizen Head was a short trip to another small city where I had a nice tea to warm myself up! After that we made our way back to Cork.
The evening ended in a pub with music, some irish dancing and the “Catch of the day” (see picture below).
