Big on Life

One of Cork’s main differentiators is the quality of life that is enjoyed here.

This comes from an easier pace of life, less commuting, lower cost of living, genuine friendliness, an abundance of activities, a proud sense of history, having most of what you need on your doorstep and still managing to achieve career and business success.

Cork is a place that’s culturally rich and vibrant. Designated European Capital of Culture in 2005, the city has a wide range of cultural facilities, events and activities, plus over 20 major festivals each year. Known as Ireland’s Food Capital, the heritage, provenance and quality of Cork’s food and drink is world class.

And then there’s the people. Corkonians are approachable, helpful, friendly, quick witted, open and independent minded. Perhaps above all, Cork is welcoming - a place that people can quickly feel part of, make friends and connections and put down roots.
