Cork Neighbourhood

We hate to be cheesy, but this city really is enchanting. Built within wild and rolling hills, it feels idyllic, but don’t let all that space fool you, it’s a city alive with creative, young energy, known by the locals as ‘the real capital of Ireland’. 30,000 students are based in Cork each year, so it’s a city constantly evolving to make student life the best it can be.

Known for its traditional snug pubs, live music and restaurants serving fresh, locally sourced food, this city is proud and welcoming and is packed full of culture at every turn. Just minutes from shops, bars, cafés and central Cork, our Curraheen Residence is the perfect place for student life. You’re close to several of the major colleges and universities in the city, including:

  • University College Cork
  • Cork Institute of Technology (CIT)
  • Cork College of Commerce
  • Griffith College Cork
  • St John’s Central College
  • National Maritime College of Ireland
  • Crawford College of Art and Design

It couldn’t be easier to get to and from lectures, pop back for lunch or to make use of the study areas in between lectures. Live with us in Curraheen Point and you’ll be close to all that Cork has to offer.
