around Cork go to Kinsale, one of the best sea side Irish villages Iv ever seen.

Gotta love Kinsale - great sea food, great pubs. Also you can visit Blarney Castle and kiss the Blarney stone too - if you like heights that is - otherwise there are lovely gardens to wander around. Cork City has really spruced itself up of late so if you fancy some shopping you should find everything you like.

Cobh and surrounding area is pretty nice and then you could head over toward West Cork - Skibereen; Bantry areas which are really picturesque as well. You will need to hire a car though cos public transport in Ireland aint the greatest.

Budapest is great! i lived there for a couple of months

Turkish bath on the Buda side.

The communist Park is cool if u like the history stuff

Theres a great food market , its a large building with a green tiled roof, across from a Burker King next to one of the bridges. Its at the end of the main tourist road in the center of Pest
