A big friendly welcome to Cork! One of the largest of all the Irish counties in the South West of Ireland, Cork is considered to be one of the top cities in the world to visit. This University City is full of variety, colour and culture with plenty to do for all ages.

An island within Ireland, Cork’s centre spans both banks of the River Lee and is connected to the sea by the enormous Cork harbour, so be prepared to cross many bridges as you explore it’s many watery channels. There’s so much to see in the centre of the city, but you can’t ignore the beautiful coastline. As you discover beautiful golden sand beaches dotted with rocky peninsulas and secret bays and coves carved out by the Atlantic, you won’t believe you’re only 1 1/2 hours from Southampton Airport.
