Cork is quite popular for its pubs where you can go to have a laugh and some craic. Living in Ireland, you know you must make the most of a hot, sunny day, so if you are lucky to have a full day of sun, you should head down to Inchydoney Beach and Garretstown Beach, amongst the other beaches surrounding Cork.

Anyways, the Alliance Française de Cork is also in the city centre for anyone who wants to join.
