Why relocate to Cork?
Known as the ‘Rebel County’ and ‘The Real Capital’, Cork is the largest county in Ireland. Situated on the picturesque Wild Atlantic Way, it is every photographer’s dream, with rolling hills, hidden coves, and arguably some of the best beaches in the country. Certainly, the city itself—scarce a millennium-old—breathes history from every stone. Named European Capital of Culture in 2005, Cork City is home to lively art, food, shopping and sports scene.
The busy local economy is supported by a number of third-level institutions. University College Cork (Ireland’s first 5-star university) and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) are just some of the institutions ensuring this county is at the forefront of Irish education and cutting-edge research. A city on the rise, Cork is set to be the fastest-growing city in Ireland in the next 20 years. Yet never do their people lose track of the craic, charity, and charm that make Corkonians famous the world over. Thus, it’s easy to see why it has been voted the third friendliest city in the world!
