Cork, Ireland - August 13th 2009

In August my family and I spent two weeks in Ireland.

Here’s a series of pictures of this colourful city.

Enjoy!

2. Modern buildings along Lapp’s Quay.

4. Colourful houses along Union Quay.

6. Irish pub.


7. The library of Cork.


8. A small market along Corn Market Street.


9. Kyle street.


10.


11. A hardware store.


12.


13.

15. St. Anne’s Church.


16. View from the entrance of the church.


17. Small alley.


18. Colourful houses.


19. Buildings along Lavitt’s Quay. Watch the “house” in the glass building.


20. Pedestrian bridge.


21. Cork Opera House.


22. Shopping street.


23. St. Anne’s Church from a distance.


24. The Raven Bar.

Lovely shots of a very nice city as you say, shame the weather couldn't have been a bit better. Are there more?

Really lovely photos of this southern Irish city. The colours on some of the buildings are unreal....but very much in keeping with their surroundings I think.

Thx for posting

Yeah, some sunshine would have been nice, but then streetshots like 9/10/16/17 would have been more difficult to make (sun/shadow).

Nice pics. I was there in december and it wasn't very sunny either. It kinda ruined my pictures. I also think it's very colourful. Did you park in the parking garage next to that new 22 story building you see in some of your pictures?
