Cork Docklands are set in a beautiful location to the east of the City Centre and cover an area of 166 hectares of land on both banks of the River Lee, with 4 kilometres of waterfront. The potential of this area was recognised in the 1990s culminating in the publication of the Cork Docklands Development Strategy in 2001. This set out a vision for a new urban quarter characterised by high quality design; residential, employment and leisure opportunities; and a superb quality of life in a high-density urban setting.The regeneration of Docklands is a priority for Cork City Council. It is actively working to achieve this over the medium-term in co-operation with the various stakeholders in Docklands.
