Visitor Info


Cork City was founded by Saint Finbarr over 1,000 years ago and has grown from a trading merchant city to a cosmopolitan, vibrant 21st century today.

Known as the rebel county, Cork is a buzzing city steeped in maritime history and artistic culture. This southwest metropolis sits proudly on the River Lee, packed full of museums, coffee shops, art galleries, music venues and restaurants with locally sourced food and drink.

Despite being a city, Cork has a community feel – laid back and compact -visitors can feel at home meandering the streets of this sociable city.
