Since the city’s establishment by St Finbarr over 1.000 years ago, Cork has evolved from a trading and merchant city to a cosmopolitan and vibrantly modern city.
Cork’s commitment and contribution to the arts and cultural life has been well-established. The city is home to several galleries, museums, the National Sculpture Factory, dance theatres and artist workshops.
For its commitment to the arts, Cork was chosen from among many other Irish cities to become the European Capital of Culture in 2005, a title which has further promoted Cork’s significant and distinctive qualities and contributions to European culture.
