Commercial Hub

Fronting onto Union Quay, Trinity Quarter is situated in a superb and accessible location within Cork's central business district. A symbol of renewal, motion and life, the River Lee - Cork's main waterway - calmly meanders towards Trinity Quarter before changing its direction and continuing its journey to the sea.

Trinity Quarter provides its occupants, not only with panoramic views of the River Lee, but is also a window in to the city's pulsating life. With key historic and geographical connections to the area, the name Trinity Quarter captures the essence of what this major development will mean to Cork: Creation of a brand new commercial district in the city centre and compelling landmark that will embed itself in the heart of the city and its people.

A vibrant and youthful city, Cork is the commercial capital of the south of Ireland. The city has a track record for attracting international investment with over 137 overseas companies currently operating in the area employing over 22,500 people. Cork has consistently attracted many of the world’s largest companies to locate within the region and is now home to global market leaders in pharmaceuticals, healthcare, ICT, biotechnology, professional services and international financial services.

The cluster of major multicultural companies who benefit from Cork’s strategic and established commercial hub, ensures Trinity Quarter is in good company:
