The City Gate Centre is situated in the Mahon area of the city. Cork is second only to Dublin economically and has attracted many international businesses, particularly in the pharmaceuticals and information technology sectors. The vibrant and internationally-recognised University College Cork and Cork Institute of Technology ensure not only a steady stream of well qualified and highly skilled graduates for businesses but also a go-getting attitude and determination to succeed. This is backed by a number of institutions, among them include the Cork City Enterprise Board, which encourages business networking and other collaborative opportunities. Travel links, both by car and public transport, are good and the building is open 24/7, adding to the flexibility that occupiers increasingly require.
