Travel & Tourism Overview

Cork City Council is proud to take a leading role in promoting the City on the international stage as an attractive location for tourists and visitors.  

The City has entered the 21st Century assuming the mantle of a modern, vibrant and progressive urban centre, a status underlined by the designation of Cork as European Capital of Culture 2005. 

Building from that highly successful year Cork City Council has continued to develop the city through substantial development in the public realm and through the active support of culture and the arts. This commitment has been matched by private sector investment in the hotel, retail and hospitality sectors, increasing the capacity and appeal of the city for visitors.
