It’s no wonder that lots of Irish couples are choosing to get hitched in and around Cork in Ireland. The settlement may be known as the Emerald Isle’s ‘second city’, but it sure doesn’t play second fiddle where looks and ambience are concerned. It’s liberal, youthful and cosmopolitan to the core, with plenty of pretty streets and a revitalised waterfront that teems with artisanal coffee bars and innovative eateries. Naturally, there are also plenty of rustic pubs and life Gaelic music sessions that teem with Irish craic. In short – it’s the best of both!
