Civic Trust House, Popes Quay
“This beautiful Queen Anne house dates from around 1730 and is considered one of the finest historic buildings in the city. Built as a residence, it is believed to have originally been home to Richard Boyle, the 4th Earl of Cork.
In the 1990s the newly-formed Cork Civic Trust came to the rescue of this very special building, leasing it from the council, securing funds and managing its renovation.
In 2006 Cork City Council made it available as residence to a range of professional arts organisations who have formed a partnership Arts @ Civic Trust House.”
