Capitol is gone now... I'd add the Hi B and the Castle as pubs that must be experienced

thats pretty nasty blumenblatt. even if u say the people are lovely. the fact a list isnt finished puts u off a city? wheres the top one hundred compiled by citizens of boston? or rather maybe 60 active members? cork is lovely and that list is "real". its all fun. and im from tipperary and im saying that.

LOL. There are plenty of tops for Boston, since this is not a Boston Msg. board I will not start a thread.

I have been to Cork, on more than one occasion and just didn't care for it as much as some of the many other place I could rave about (other than Boston). I wasn't saying that the short list is why I did not like it, so I probably should have worded my response better.

I placed the comment about the wondeful people in there because thats the one really positive thing I felt about Cork and my entire experience in Ireland (I lived there for a year). I didn't love Ireland as much as I loved the people. Maybe my wording was a bit off, but I am entitled to my humble opinion.

I'm still maintaining that I love the people, don't love the city...sorry guys.

Never been there so I won't

I suppose visiting somewhere you'll never get the same impression as living there [not better or worse necessarily but definitely different]
