Cork, Ireland – 10 September – 14 September 2011

I wanted to stay another few days in Dublin, but we had already told some friends of ours in Cork that we were going to stay with them the next night. And so we did – caught a bus the next day down to Mallow, Cork (pretty much a whole day travelling). We stayed there for a couple days with some old family friends of Brett’s, and discovered what Irish people were like. What are they like then? Well when they’re not drunk, they’re pretty normal – much like Australians.

Belfast and Dublin, Ireland – 8 September – 10 September 2011

We returned our rental car early that morning, and caught a bus from Glasgow to the coast where a nice big ferry was waiting to take us across to Ireland. It was a fairly short trip, but quite scenic with various islands here and there. We arrived in Belfast that afternoon and consulted a map and brochures of “What to do in Belfast”. It turns out there isn’t really much to do there, unless you’re interested in where the Titanic was built and moored.
