In Need of Date Inspiration? Here’s The Ultimate First Date Guide for Dating in Cork  


Here at Two’s Company, we know that dating can be a minefield.  Online dating can be hit and miss (we all know someone with an ‘interesting’ online dating story) and the thought of joining a dating agency is quite daunting. With anything in life, with a little risk there can be huge rewards!

Even after all that hard work of finding someone, the perfect date idea can often require some imagination. With first dates, the pressure is on to nail the right type of date and venue. No one likes shouting over the noise or being somewhere that’s so quiet you’re afraid that your thinking of what to say can be heard by all!

With that in mind, we compiled a list of date ideas in Cork. Whether it’s for a first date or you just want to try something new. With over 10 years match-making experience we are experts in knowing what works.
