About Cork

Cork is the second-largest city in Ireland. Seen mostly as a  university town as well as a centre of entrepreneurship, the city brims with a vibrant young adult population. In fact, it is home to 30,000 international students. As one of Ireland’s major cities, Cork is noted for its international companies which have established offices in Cork, resulting in the creation of specialist clusters in the life sciences, information technology, and agri-food sectors. Aside from this, it boasts of an exciting nightlife with a number of pubs and entertainment centres featuring international artists and some great local Irish talent. It is a home to the famous Blarney Stone, which, according to legend, holds the power to bless anyone who kisses it with the ‘gift of the gab’. For sports buffers, the city is popular for Rugby, Gaelic football, hurling, and association football.
