Hey rebel with a cause. If you have more info about the buses and trains that serve Cork, can you put it in the article - even just the names of the places that can be directly reached from Cork would be helpful? Thanks (WT-en) WindHorse 3 March 06

Train info has been expanded. Busses are more complicated, but I'll get to it... (WT-en) Rebel 26-March-06

Note: Lennox's Chip Shop on Bandon Road, is not on Barrack Street and is not the same people as the one on Angelsea Street, afaik. Rebel. 26-March-06

Deleted Capella Castlemartyr from the hotel listings because it is no longer open or a Capella property.

The stay safe section is nonsense. I;ve seen more fights in Spain and Portugal than I ever have in Ireland.

The Clarion has suffered drop in standers in recent times. after staying there in December and found it not to be as good as described in the article and would like it to be moved to mid range

[edit]

Dear Webmaster,

even if i am interested in tourist relevant topics, i would prefer to have pub crawl related, clear advertisement deleted from this page. if i am looking for such thing, ill find it myself. there is no need to have it on wikivoyage. best regards seb --92.225.88.20 12:35, 8 April 2012 (EDT)

Remaining tasks[edit]

It looks to me like the most pressing tasks are putting in a map and making a pagebanner. Is there anything else you think is needed before we can nominate this article for Destination of the Month? The article has room for another photo or possibly two, if they would help the article, but it's already well illustrated. Ikan Kekek (talk) 14:04, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Breadcrumb[edit]

So, does this belong under East Cork or West Cork? Texugo (talk) 18:19, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

The city is it's own entity and doesn't belong to a region in my opinion. --Donal.hunt (talk) 23:14, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
Every single destination article on Wikivoyage belongs to a region of some description; see the Crumbs page for more information on how this works. And welcome to Wikivoyage. ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 23:40, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the welcome! I don't understand why the Cork article can't just be a direct child of County Cork? The Crumbs page seems to suggest that the organisation of pages is up to the community as long as it makes sense. Other cities in Ireland are direct child's of the their county pages (albeit they mostly don't have distinct areas within their own counties).
It can't be a direct child of County Cork, because our Co Cork region article has subregions (West Cork, North Cork and East Cork). City articles are always the "children" of the lowest regional division. This policy may seem strange, but it is consistent; even New York City is the direct child of a subregion called Metro New York, rather than being a child of New York (state) or even the Mid-Atlantic region.
The only way to change Cork city's position would be to propose doing away with the three subregions of Co Cork, and just having one large article for the county, which might make sense. However, we generally try to have no more than nine city articles in a given region, and a merged Co Cork article would have 17 - a bit problematic!
If it helps at all, Cork city is listed very prominently both on County Cork and indeed on the Ireland article, because it is an important city. A city's placement in the hierarchy doesn't affect where it can be listed. Hence NYC is listed under 'Cities' at every level on the hierarchy between Metro New York at the bottom and North America at the top.
I hope this makes sense? Let me know if not :) --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 02:04, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
19 articles is still acceptable for a bottom level region and the spread at the moment is not particularly good. As there is little information in the sub-regions of Cork County I think it would be a good idea to have just one region. --Traveler100 (talk) 03:02, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Looking at those articles, I'm inclined to agree. ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 12:08, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
merged up the sub-regions, one paragraph about West Cork moved into Cork County. May need to look at redoing that section. --Traveler100 (talk) 09:14, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
