Location & Accommodation

Welcome to Cork, Ireland

Cork is Ireland’s second-largest city and is situated on the southern coast of the island of Ireland. It is famous for its mesmerising landscape and its 1100 km of coastline delivers some of the most stunning scenery that Ireland has to offer.

Cork City is over 800 years old and it is built on a series of islands. This ancient merchant city is steeped in maritime history and a rich artistic culture. Cork has a thriving foodie and craft beer scene, some of the country’s friendliest pubs and an artisan coffee bar on every corner.

We hope you enjoy Cork and all it has to offer while you visit our city during DGINS 2023.
