County Cork is one of the traditional counties of Ireland. It is located within the province of Munster, and was named after the city of Cork. The southernmost of the Irish counties, it is also the largest, covering an area of just under 7,500 square kilometres.

Cork is nicknamed "The Rebel County", as a result of the support of the townsmen of Cork in 1491 for Perkin Warbeck, a pretender to the throne of England during the Wars of the Roses. In more recent times, the name has referred to the prominent role Cork played in the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921) and its position as an anti-treaty stronghold during the Irish Civil War (1922-23).

Cork city is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland and the island of Ireland's third most populous city. It is the principal city and administrative centre of County Cork and the largest city in the province of Munster.

A short stroll into town or to the beach, you dont need to use your car. 3 Clifton is one of just 6 Victiorian townhouses that were built to the highest standards over 130 years ago. After years of renovation and restoration we are now able to offer this fabulous luxury townhouse. 3 Clifton is a listed property in a heritage area.
