Cork and Surroundings
Cork is a university city in southwest Ireland, situated along the River Lee just inland from the Celtic Sea. Home to some 125,000 people, Cork is the third largest city on the island of Ireland and is known for its distinctive accent and role in the Irish Civil War.
Founded in the 6th century as a monastery settlement, Cork quickly grew into an important trade city due to its proximity to Cork Harbour, one of the world’s largest natural harbours. The city exported wool, and imported salt, iron and wine, with the rest of continental Europe during medieval times, but today more commonly trades consumer goods. The city is home to the European headquarters of several large, multinational technology firms, such as Apple, Amazon and IBM.
Cork is a culturally diverse city, having experienced foreign immigration since the late 17th century. It’s not uncommon to traverse the main streets and encounter Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine, East European delicacies, Indian buffets and French Patisseries. The city was nominated European Capital of Culture in 2005, and has produced a great deal of well-known Irish poets, writers, singers and actors.
The Church of Saint Anne sits atop a hill in the Shandon district, the views from its bell tower looking out over rows of colourful buildings, green fields and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
