Cork English Academy is located in the city centre, less than five minutes walk from Patrick’s Street the main shopping street in the immediate city centre.

Many of our students say they decided upon Cork city as a study destination because they wanted to live somewhere different and break away from the norm of studying in the bigger cities. The city has a population of 190,000 people and offers a unique, charming and friendly welcome to all who walk its streets and visit its many attractions.

Cork City is just the right size to feel at home quickly, and yet has all the character of a cosmopolitan city.

The city is listed as one of the top ten places to visit in the world according to the Lonely Planet guide which says Cork “. . . has always had an unshakeable self-confidence and innate sense of pride”

The people of Cork are very proud of their city and celebrate it by nurturing culture and the arts. The city is known for its homegrown music, film, theatre and thriving art scene.

Cork has always been a major centre for the arts in Ireland but, since its designation as European City of Culture in 2005, the city has upped its game significantly. The calendar of major festivals hosted in Cork throughout the year caters for all tastes, with events in performance and visual arts, choral singing, comedy, film, folk music, jazz, literature, writing, and traditional music, to name but a few.
