Study English in Cork

Situated on the south coast of Ireland, Cork is the second largest in the country with 190,000 inhabitants. Much of the city center is located on an island in the River Lee. The river flows south of the city to Cork Harbour, one of the largest natural harbours in the world.

In recent decades, the city has undergone many changes, thanks to investment in cultural life and infrastructure. Cork was the European Capital of Culture in 2005 and showed everyone the hospitality of its citizens.

It has a very youthful atmosphere, led mainly by its university and its jazz festivals, theatre, opera and more.
