Cork or Galway?

Jump to last reply

We have an 9 day trip planned for the end of September and we are trying to decide which city to spend more time in, Cork or Galway. I have been reading as much as I can on this forum and others since we decided to go and had thought that Galway was the obvious answer as so many people recommend it, however, since then I have started really looking at things to do in both places and I've got pages for Cork and very little for Galway. What am I missing? I would like to visit the CoM and Loops Head, possibly one of the Aran Islands while we are out there, but if the weather is bad and we can't do either of those then Galway doesn't seem to offer much else. The other option is to do one night in Galway and spend the rest of the time in far southwest Ireland (between Dingle and Cork).

Here's what we're looking at:

Day 1: arrive in Dublin, drive to (option 1) Cork, (option 2) Galway

Day 2: drive to Dingle

Day 3: stay in Dingle

Day 4: drive to (option 1) somewhere between Dingle and Galway?, (option 2) somewhere around RoK?

Day 5: (option 1) somewhere between Dingle and Galway?, (option 2) somewhere around RoK?

Day 6: (option 1) drive to Galway, (option 2) drive to Cork

Day 7: (option 1) stay in Galway, (option 2) stay in Cork

Day 8: drive to Dublin

Day 9: Stay in Dublin

Day 10: leave

So really what my question comes down to is which place is more fun - Galway or Cork? Including the surrounding area.
