Cork, an industrial centre situated at the gateway to a rich agricultural region, is a city of paradoxes. You'll be surprised by the number of young people in this dynamic, university town which is also home to some of the big names in the IT and electronics industries. As a contrast to this bustling commercial activity, Cork also has a traditional feel with street musicians adding a touch of charm to the city centre.
