Cork vs Dublin
I want to know weather it would be better to stay in cork or dublin. We're a South-African Family who really want to start a new life in Ireland. It's me my wife and my 18 month son.
What would be the average travel fees and how much would you need a month average for groceries...

Weather in Ireland hardly changes from North to the South of the country. Having said that, Cork, and the west in general, is a bit wetter than Dublin and the east. The warmest, and just, is the SE corner of Waterford. But I think that the lower midlands must be the warmest cos they are furthest from the Atlantic and Irish seas.
Wheres me shovels?

but the more i settle in to cork, the more i liked about cork.i live near to city. about half and hour walk from home to town, 10mins by bus.airport is nearer 25 mins by air coach.15 mins by car. rent is cheaper.
cork has alot of hills even in the town center. so there is alot of houses located on the hills...from there you will have a nice view of cork city center in your room.
once i have lived in Jacob's Island... there is a ...erm..lake? or bay? not really sure ...behind the house and i used to have sun set view from my bedroom.
my colleague who lives in kinsale, about 30-40 drive away from city centre...has an absolutely breathtaking view in front of her house.
i would say the speed in cork is slower and more quiet than Dublin. Dublin is so happening. i love to go up once in a month or 2 months. somehow i just like to be home as fast as possible after work which actually just take me 10 mins walk now from work to home.
erm..groceries i think is pretty much the same price as in dublin. restaurant,hairdressing...has no much difference with dublin.:)
