wenray

Can't help you much with the shopping, I'm afraid, but I hope the following web-sites will be helpful:

Here's the Dublin tourist web-site:

http://www.visitdublin.com/

Here's information on shopping in Dublin:

visitdublin.com/seeanddo/Shopping/dublin.aspx

Recommend you take a day-trip or two out of Dublin City to see the beautiful rural scenery, and some of Ireland's most famous heritage sites:

For travel between Dublin and Cork:

Not far from Cork (city) is the sea-side town of Kinsale, which is a very popular destination for visitors to Ireland. You can take a bus from Cork to Kinsale. There's a great choice of accommodation, whether you're looking for hotel or guest house, plus some superb restaurants:

For information on Cork, have a look at Bryno's "inside pages" - lots of helpful hints there:

Well, at least this is a start. Hopefully you'll get more detailed information on shopping in Dublin and Cork from other posters!
