Local area:
Cork is Ireland’s second largest city and boasts all the character, charm and excitement of the capital in a more compact setting. It is often referred to as ‘the real capital of Ireland’ by locals! Situated on the banks of the River Lee, the historic city centre offers fantastic cultural and shopping opportunities as well as lots of exciting things to do and places to explore. The city is truly the perfect blend of cosmopolitan city life and a traditional homely Irish atmosphere, making it a hugely popular choice for international high school students.

Beyond the city limits, students can explore the wider county of Cork - Ireland’s biggest county. With its beautiful coastline, delicious food and picturesque colourful towns and villages, it’s no wonder that the locals are fiercely proud of where they come from and are eager to welcome exchange students and introduce them to the Irish way of life.
