East Cork lies in south-west Ireland, in Ireland's largest county, County Cork. The term "East Cork" is used in tourism,[1][2] sporting[3] and other contexts, and for example is the name given to one of eight municipal districts of Cork County Council.[4]

East Cork contains one of the world's largest natural harbours, Cork Harbour. Fota Island House and Gardens is also east of Cork City, and Fota Island Golf Course hosted the Irish Open golf tournament in 2001.

Towns and "key villages" in the East Cork municipal district of Cork County Council include Midleton, Youghal, Castlemartyr, Cloyne, Killeagh, Whitegate and Aghada.[5]
