A Unique Culture Trail in Cork City
Island City- Cork's Urban Sculpture Trail is an unique cultural trail of five public artworks throughout Cork City Centre for locals and visitors to enjoy.

The temporary artworks will be located at on Carey's Lane (installation complete), the Exchange Building on Princes Street, Cook Street, The Coal Quay and Triskel Christchurch and will remain in situ for a period of five years.

Island City, Cork’s Urban Sculpture Trail is a Cork City Council project funded by Fáilte Ireland under the Urban Animation Scheme to the tune of €670,000.. It is the biggest ever single investment in public art in Cork City.
