Fantastic Japanese takeaway, run by a Japanese chef. If you get lucky you can get a stool and eat there. If not, the house is not far.

For when you are after crowd and party. Regular gigs, some of them free. Great atmosphere when not too crowded, a bit much some other times, although this probably shows our age.

Shopping
The heart of Cork. Best meat: try O'Mahony's by the Grand parade entrance; Seafood: Ballycotton; best bread: Arbutus, sold in the Pigs back; best smoked salmon: Hederman (pricy but worth it)

Entertainment & Activities
A bit of a walk up the hill, but well worth the detour if you haven't been to Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin. Very interesting architecture, and a solid introduction to the Irish Revolution and Civil War.

Parks & Nature
A large pound that doubles up as a birds nature reserve. Geese, ducks, swans, swallows in summer and small bats in the evening. About 10 minutes uphill walk from our house. Good place for a jog, too.

The only real park in Cork. Medium size, with a variety of areas (Victorian pound, lawns, river edge, new bandstand, kids playground...). This is where people flock when the weather is good. Also home to the free Cork Public Museum, charting the history of the city, and to a host of family weekend events throughout the summer. The café at the back of the museum serves good food.

Not really a park, more of a long lawn stuck between the road and the river, this is where we go when we want a longer walk. You can easily access it by following the River's edge from Fitzegerald Park. A path goes past the Shaky Bridge, along the wall of the Mardyke's sports field, crosses a road and brings you to a series of weirs and bridges. Good for a jog.
