    Default BBC: Cork ''a City that is more Genuinely Irish than Dublin''!

    BBC - Travel - Exploring the food capital of Ireland : Food & Drink, Ireland

    Well this has been a pleasant read. The real capital has been graciously honoured by the BBC in a travel article.

    Should be good for tourism to the rebel city.

    What do you all think? Is Cork the best place in Ireland to experience Irish culture?
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    BBC were obviously impressed by the huge welcome that HRM had in Cork compared to the riots and indifference in the actual capital

    I have heard that the good burghers of the City are organising a protest about the failure to fly the union flag on the city hall.

    It sounds like they're taking the piss. Food capital of Ireland, champion of fine food and drink etc.

    Cos much and all as I like Cork, the nicest thing you could say about its restaurants is that they are limited. There are small towns near Cork like Kinsale where you would hope to have a better dining experience. And frankly Dublin, with everything ranging right up to Michelin starred restaurants, is vastly superior. The English market is lovely though.

    In terms of being 'traditionally Irish', I'd put Galway a lot higher up there on the list. However, I wouldn't expect your run of the mill BBC reporter get their tiny minds around the true diversity of Irish culture.

    Cork is the best place in Ireland. Period. That wouldn't be hard though.
    Cry your hardest now, it opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes and softens down the temper. So cry away.

    Its not called Rebel Cork for nothing you know (and it has nothing to do with fighting the Brits).

    But ye're not known as Jackeens for no reason either.

    Not when it comes to fine dining though.

    Cafe Paradiso a significant exception.

    In terms of cities there's no comparison between Dublin and Cork.

    Dublin City Centre has much more going for it than Cork City Centre.
