In Cork, we had a wonderful evening At Oliver Plunketts bar and Grill where there was live traditional Irish music and dancing. We wandered around the English market which was full of fresh meats, fruits and vegetables and some artisan products. I loved shopping at Carol’s gifts around the corner. And then we went to the Blarney castle and went through the beautiful gardens. What a great way to spend a sunny day!
A note about our hotel. We stayed at the Kingsley Hotel in Cork, Ireland. They did not have a wheelchair accessible shower in my room which I had paid for five months prior to arrival. I requested a wheelchair accessible room and double checked but when I arrived, the only one they had was wheelchair accessible except for the shower. I did speak to the manager and they told me they would refund 50% of my money for the first night. I believe they were fair. They did accommodate us with a fully wheelchair accessible room for the rest of our stay as requested.
