Cork has the perfect lifestyle balance – a vibrant, bustling city set in a county with some of the most spectacular natural beauty in Europe. The city itself is compact with many unspoiled mountains, lakes, rivers and beaches are just a short drive from the city centre and even in the heart of the county, you are never more than an hour from the spectacular Atlantic coastline.

Cork was selected as European Capital of Culture in 2005 – a tremendous boost to a city that has more theatres, concert venues, arts centres and galleries per head of population than any other Irish city.

Cork City is Ireland's third city (after Dublin and Belfast) with more than a quarter of a million people working, studying and living their everyday lives in the thriving Cork Metropolitan area.
