The Victorian Quarter of Cork is a lively, city-centre spot with the charming, friendly atmosphere of a small village. With award-winning hotels, restaurants, pubs, salons & shopping, the V.Q. is a destination for visitors around the world as well as locals down the street. You can find music from traditional Irish to rock & roll, and shows both comedy and dramatic. The Quarter is an established cultural epicentre with a critically acclaimed theatre scene and acts as host to music performances and festivals throughout the year.

The Victorian Quarter is also your connection to Ireland and beyond. Kent Station, on our eastern corner, connects us to the rest of the country by rail and brings thousands of passengers to the V.Q.’s doorstep every week. Cruise ship patrons flood into The Quarter each spring and summer, soaking in the Cork hospitality. The beautiful, new Mary Elmes Bridge delivers bus riders from around the county and the whole of Ireland to our welcoming streets. Likewise, our own coach bus depot gathers travellers to the banks of The River Lee, our southern boundary. The Victorian Quarter is a hub, attracting guests and acting as a launching point for adventure.

Also home to over 100 independent businesses, there’s a quirky mix of specialist stores and charming shopfronts to explore as well as some of Cork’s best restaurants and nightlife venues. Obviously, there’s plenty to be had as you discover this hip & historic neighborhood.
