Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

About Us

Pure Cork is the destination Brand for Cork.

Matched with the motivations of visitors at home and overseas, our brand imaginatively embraces the spirit of the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East.  

Simply put - Cork is Ireland’s Maritime Haven. Our proposition is based around our significant maritime history spanning over a thousand years, set in a beautiful soft coastal environment. The land, the people and their culture will allow our visitors to discover a quirky way to stimulate all of their senses. 

Visit Cork is a public/private sector partnership funded and supported by Cork City and County Councils, Fáilte Ireland and the private sector. 

It is the official tourism marketing agency for Cork dedicated to promoting Cork as a destination for leisure and business visitors. It is the governing board of both Business and Leisure tourism in Cork.

 It provides an extensive range of marketing platforms for tourism businesses to promote their products and services to travel trade and consumers. 

In marketing Pure Cork, we are keen to work with businesses that reflect the best of what Cork has to offer potential visitors.
