Cork Self Catering Guide

Cork city, the second City of the Republic of Ireland, has a population of 140,000 people. Cork City is built upon the waters with the City Centre built on an island in the River Lee just upstream of Cork Harbour.

The two channels of the River Lee which embraces the City centre are spanned by sixteen bridges which give the City a Continental air.

It is often said that Cork has all the amenities of a large City, but still retains its pleasant atmosphere and unique friendliness.

The county derives it's name from the Irish word Corcaigh - meaning marsh, the city was founded by St. Finbarr in A.D.650 on the marshy land banks of the River Lee. The county is the largest in Ireland and has many beautiful towns and villages as well as a spectacular coastline.
