Study in Cork
Cork, Ireland's second largest city, lies in the southwest region of Ireland in the province of Munster. The River Lee flowing through this important seaport splits up into two channels what makes you cross several bridges strolling through this wonderful city full of picturesque shops and pubs filled with traditional Irish atmosphere. Cork is famous for its University, cultural institutions and Celtic monuments. It is nearly three hours from Dublin, the capital city of Ireland.
Corkonians are very proud of their city and consider it as “the real capital” due to it’s important anti-treaty role during the Irish Civil War which also brought them a nickname “The Rebels”.
