Located in the south of the country, Ireland’s second city (ahem, well just don’t say that to the locals when you visit!), Cork is home to world-famous attractions such as the Blarney Stone, Kinsale, and Skellig Michael. More importantly though, its people – referred to colloquially as ‘Corkonians’ – are renowned for being a warm and friendly bunch who are fiercely proud of their heritage, their city, and their culture.
Although Cork is a small city, with a population of just 120,000 people, its compact size is a good thing: it’s easy to walk, super-friendly, and – without the transport headaches often associated with larger cities – a lot less stressful too!
