The city of Cork in southern Ireland lies on the estuary of the River Lee. Colourful houses and bridges of the second largest city of Ireland still have a special charming atmosphere of the 19th century. Our school is located in the city centre and is housed in two neighbouring buildings built in Georgian style. The banks of the River Lee, numerous shops, quaint pubs, nice restaurants and cafés are within walking distance. Almost one-fifth of Cork’s residents are students who shape the nightlife in clubs and pubs and music scene of this Irish city. An evening in the theatre or in the cabaret is a real “must” in Cork, as well as a night in a traditional pub or a nightclub. The typical pub “The Franciscan Well” is located directly on the river and is a brewery at the same time. A meeting point for students is the College pub “An Brog”, where DJs play until 2:00 am.
