Located on the South West coast of Ireland, Cork is the largest of all Irish counties and to many the most varied. Washed by the warm Gulf Stream and the mild moist south winds, palm trees and bamboo flourish. It is the most favoured corner of Ireland: here Spring begins.
From the lively centre of Cork City, to the sweet tranquility of Mizen Head, Cork is a study in contrasts. One moment you are in the midst of a world-class shopping expedition and the next you are pausing to absorb a spectacular seaside vista. All of which makes Cork a unique and delightful area to visit.
The Rivers Lee and Blackwater, flowing through gently rolling meadows to the sea, will serve as your guide as you explore this delightful county. While the lively arts and music culture will make your heart beat faster, the beautiful scenery and world-class dining will give you plenty of reason to kick back and relax.
