Ballymaloe Weekend 4 - 4/5th February Cork City

Well, after a month here I eventually made it into Cork City centre. It was drizzling and being a Sunday some of the shops and the market was closed, but I will be back. Here are some pics:

Cork is full of these little streets

Cool old newspaper building

Crawford Art Gallery

Cork Opera House





Myself and some of the housemates also went to the Bodega for a tasty lunch, I had the Vegetable Curry. It's an old building that is now a cavernous bar and restaurant and inside it's really cool with model cranes suspended from the ceiling, lots of art and a massive bar. Don't think my photos really do it justice but it's really cool and all their menus and signs use a great art nouveau-stylefont http://www.bodegacork.ie/
