It is said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten. The gentle Irish rainfall, called ‘soft weather’ by the locals, really does create 40 shades of green and quite a few rainbows as well. Cork, Ireland’s second largest city, is a lively city located only a few miles away from the famous Blarney Castle and Blarney stone on the beautiful south coast of Ireland. It is known for its great contributions to architecture, design, music, dance, theater, film, food, literature and sports. Aspire students taking a gap year in Ireland will experience both traditional and modern sides of the country while in Cork.
