• Welcome to Cork

    Cork has a proud reputation as a creative, innovative and vibrant region. As Ireland’s second city, it is not only an international gateway to Europe, but lies at the centre of the global economies of Asia and the Americas. With a population of just over 500,000, Cork has a strong track record at attracting investment, and the region is known for its collaborative culture in all aspects of business.


    Cork offers a perfect combination of vibrant and compact city-living, with spectacular rural and coastal scenery on the doorstep, and there is a positive can-do attitude that makes international investors and visitors feel instantly welcome. Known as the Food Capital of Ireland and host to over 20 festivals a year, Cork is full of character and offers a perfect work-life balance. Come and see for yourself!
