Cork City is my kind of place. The food, the art, the overall "vibe" of the streets feels like a city that would be easy to call home. The University of Cork is a mix of weeping willows and a winding river a la Cambridge University, but it is also has modern architecture that somehow fits in. We visited the Butter Museum, rang the bells at Saint Anne's Shandon, and read poems out to the rooftops of the city.

There is a theme developing: amazing food. More on this later.
