Cultural life in Cork

Cork is a culturally developed city, appealing to anyone interested in art, music, or the fine arts. A range of art galleries throughout the city showcase the works of both local and international talents.

The Opera House and Everyman Palace Theatre run a diverse programme of music, plays, and dance throughout the year. With a number of annual Cork festivals, such as The Jazz Festival, Cork Arts Fest, and the Film Festival, it is clear to see why Cork was the European Capital of Culture in 2005.
