Cork is Ireland's largest county and it is also the Irish Republic's second largest city (after Dublin). In the north of the county lies some of the richest agricultural land in the whole of Europe, the fertile Golden Vale... more In the south-west are the peninsulas of Mizen, Sheep's Head and Beare, all of which offer superb coastal and mountain scenery with semi-tropical vegetation due to the influences of the Gulf Stream.
The population of the county is over 480,000. Cork County covers a land area of 2880 square miles or 7456 square kilometres. Just south of Cork city is the port of Cobh. Cork is home to two Gaeltacht areas where the Irish language is the primary medium of communication, these are Cúil Aodha (English: Coolea) and Oileán Chléire (English: Cape Clear Island)
