City Overview
Cork city, a major port on the estuary of the River Lee and the self-proclaimed cultural capital, manages to be both a relaxed and a spirited place. It is one of Ireland's most pleasurable and accessable cities. The rich maritime history of Cork is found in the small ports of Cobh, Yougal and most of all Kinsale. On the other side there are the riches of the Anglo-Irish legacy. Cork is the perfect lpace to gently ease yourself into exhilarations of Ireland's west coast.

Daily Budget
It is possible to get by on a daily budget of US$45, by staying in one of the youth hostels and eating at the budget cafes. If you want to sample more of what the city of Cork has to offer, a daily budget of US$95 is what you should work with.
