April 15, 2014 |

As a premier matchmaking service in Ireland, Intro is well aware that figuring out the perfect first date can be challenging.  This is why, when utilizing Intro’s service, we plan the first date.  Some of you may want to create your own first dates.  If so, we’ve selected a few options for dating in Cork.

 

Dining Your Way to the Perfect Date

The dinner date has long been a favourite first date.  Here are two of our restaurant recommendations for dating in Cork.

Cornstore Restaurant was named one of Ireland’s best casual dining restaurants in 2012 and was a gold medal winner in 2013.  Enjoy their specialty seafood, dry aged steaks, wines, and infused cocktails.

Eco Restaurant has been serving delighted customers since the mid 90’s.  They feature fresh and delicious food from around the world using local ingredients.  Be sure to save room for their homemade desserts.

Visiting the Past to Build Your Future

A first date is about getting to know somebody that may be a huge part of your future.  Why not take a stroll through the past, while you enjoy the present?

Thanks to @IreTravelKit for reminding us about the Red Abbey.  Yes, what’s left of the 14th century abbey is only the bell tower, but it’s a perfect spot for a stroll and to stimulate conversation.

The Cork Opera House was built in 1852 and has gone through many renovations.  These days, it bills itself as southern Ireland’s premiere live entertainment venue.  Spend your first date reveling in the acoustics that only a historical venue can provide.

Take A Walk On The Wild Side

A first date can be nerve-wracking, so we suggest doing something outside both your comfort zone to take the edge off.

How about something quite unexpected with Ballyhass Lakes‘ one-hour fly-fishing lesson?  They’ll teach you the basics and it’ll give you lasting memories of your first date.

If you want something that’s wild, but within better confines.  Then we suggest the Fota Wildlife Park.  With its mix of animals and activities, you’ll quickly discover why it’s one of Cork’s most visited attractions.

Dating in Cork offers endless possibilities.  Intro’s matchmaking services hopes that our take on the best first dates in Cork provides you with a starting point.  A first date is about getting to know one another.  Pick the venue that will allow you to put your best foot forward.
