Located 15 miles East of Cork on the main Cork to Waterford road, only twenty minutes from the center of Cork City, Midleton is a highly desirable location for business. This self sustaining, multifaceted town not only boasts of a very active and successful business sector but also has a good community directive.( The Midleton UDC is one of the few Urban Councils in Ireland to still provide school lunches for local Primary Schools.)

Traditionally an agricultural area, the rich surrounding land still supports the local meat and whiskey distilling for the Irish Distillers Plant in Midleton town.

A great diversity of business activities are to be found in the Midleton area. The four chief areas are related to tourism, retail, services and industry. Most of the electricity supply for Ireland comes from the Aghada Generator Station, which also provides power for the substantial on and offshore oil refineries at Whitegate.

To the west in Carrigtwohill is the IT ( electronics and computer) and pharmaceuticals manufacturing center for East Cork.

Shanagarry is well know for the Steven Pearce Pottery and the Ballymaloe Cookery School, both internationally renowned success stories in their own right. Darina and Tim Allen’s residential Cookery School attracts students from all over the world. Darina also has presented her ‘Simply Delicious’ cookery series on RTE (Irish Television).

The town of Midleton has a varied range of excellent retail outlets for visitors to the area. Well known for stylish fashion boutiques, select restaurants, pubs of character, Irish craft shops and all town amenity provisions. Tourist facilities are second to none, accommodation catering for all levels, outdoor sports - golf, angling, fishing and the all round family resort at Trabolgan.

Conference facilities are provided by the Midleton Park Hotel offering a capacity for over 500 delegates in three separate rooms.
