Cork is one of Europe's most 'underrated' cities - Huffington Post

And there’s a special burn for Dublin.

CORK IS ONE of the most unfairly underrated cities in Europe, according to a travel guide in the Huffington Post.

The online news site’s US edition published a selection of European destinations for American visitors that it said were “overlooked” – with Cork first on the list.

The post lauds Cork’s food and pub scene, and goes so far as to compare Dublin unfavourably in terms of friendliness:

Dublin, the actual capital is great. But if you’re looking for a city [...] with locals that are friendly and welcoming [...] Cork is for you.


It also mention’s Cork’s “laid-back vibe” and says the city is “easy to navigate”.

Budapest, Porto and Bratislava are among the other cities on the list, as is Manchester in the UK – whose “spirited nightlife” gets a special mention.
