Where is Cork Anyway?

The largest county in Ireland, Cork sits on the southern coast, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, fertile farmland and scenic mountains. Renowned for its rich culinary and maritime heritage, and beloved by tourists visiting the famous Blarney Stone, Cork is also home to global technology and life sciences companies, such as Apple, Dell, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Stryker and many others who appreciate the research and education infrastructure of the region.

The capital, Cork city, which is Ireland’s second city, was rated by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the top three “Friendliest Cities In The World” in 2018, and Lonely Planet said “all that is good about Ireland can be found in Cork”.

Cork is “different” – from the musical lilt of the Cork accent, the droll humour of the Cork wit, to the warmth of the legendary Cork welcome, Cork is a place which will get your delegates talking, get them smiling and provide an environment to help make your event live long in their memories.

So, whether your conference or event requires 5-star hotels or more casual accommodation, Michelin-starred dining or relaxed food experiences, or perhaps meetings in unique, historic locations, Cork can tailor an experience your delegates will never forget. Talk to us now about making it happen!
