Cork, Cobh, Ring of Kerry in 7 hours?

We are docking in Cobh in mid-June and have about 7-9 hours in the area. We would love to see the famous Irish greenery and landscape but aren't interested in the really touristy things like Blarney. Cork and Cobh both sound worth seeing, but will we get a flavor of the countryside in that area, or should we travel to the Ring of Kerry and try to see some highlights there? Thanks, hive mind!

How can I buy or make this type of cork-wrapped flask?

I'm trying to either buy or make a round-bottomed lab flask with a cork-covered neck. The object of my desire looks like this Kontes Kool-Grip round-bottomed model. Unfortunately they appear no longer to be made, at least as far as I can tell. Where can I find one, or failing that how can I put a very similar wrap on the neck of a regular flask? [more inside]

Do corks for bottles have a direction?

When wine bottle corks are cut from the cork bark, is the cork cut vertically or horizontally through the section of bark? In other words, is there 'grain' directionality in the cork bark that matters in terms of it's function as a wine bottle cork?

Why doesn't my wine stopper work?

I'm accustomed to wine stoppers that look like this, but last night at the LCBO I was sold one that looks like this. It doesn't fit in either of my (presumably standard) wine bottles. How do I work this thing?

Recent poetry, fiction, histories re: Cork, Ireland?

Recent poetry, fiction, histories re: Cork, Ireland? The question title says it all, except maybe to clarify: not looking for authors from Cork so much as stories about or set in Cork. Even better if it's something that is likely to be on the shelves at a book store in the US. Thanks.
