The port City of Cork, distinguished by its skyline of spires and limestone buildings, is both capital city of the County of Cork and the province of Munster. Now the second city of Ireland with a population of 127,000 , Cork is the thriving business centre for the south of Ireland and a popular tourist destination.

Gateway to the South West , an area of outstanding natural beauty and Ireland's premier tourism region, Cork city offers a wide range of interests and attractions. The city dates back to the sixth century and began its days as a monastic settlement, founded by St Finbarr, with a great presence of learning which has continued through to the present University College of Cork. Nestled along the banks of the River Lee, Cork city boasts of a stunning natural harbour and indeed one of Ireland's most important and historical seaports. Steep streets wind away from the waters edge, creating a city of great charm and character.
