What’s On In

Vibrant, diverse, dynamic, cosmopolitan, the south west’s capital has become a favourite for visitors, tourists, students, job seekers alike in recent years. Cork was founded by St. Finbarr and received its city charter in 1185. The word ‘Cork’ is the anglicised version of the Irish ‘Corcaigh’, which means ‘marsh’, and the many bridges are testimony to a marine interdependency. As a city built on an estuary its fortunes have been inextricably linked to the sea; even now it boasts one of the finest ports in northern Europe.

There are so many amazing things to do in Cork, from a sightseeing tour of the iconic landmarks to uncovering centuries of history at one of the many castles and museums or enjoying a traditional afternoon tea, the possibilities are endless. Cork has an extensive range of things to do with a selection of adventures and activities.
