Cork, the second largest city in Ireland, is located on the south coast of the island. The city is a busy seaport and the home of a large number of industries including electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing, and food processing. Named the European Capital of Culture in 2005, the city was praised by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit; the city boasts international arts, film, and jazz festivals, lively performing arts and a growing artisanal culinary culture of cafes, restaurants, markets, and boutiques. There is a good mixture of educational, sporting, and cultural interests in the city. Among Cork’s cultural offerings are an art school with public painting and sculpture galleries, an Opera House, two theatres, and a city museum. The surrounding environment is as varied as it is beautiful. Cork is situated at the head of the inlet of Cork Harbor with the sea just to the south, mountains, hills, and river valleys to the north and east, and the well-known Lakes of Killarney a couple hours to the west.
