The business park element comprises 84 acres and is home to a number of major occupiers including Lilly, Laya Healthcare, DPS Engineering, PFH, CIF, Clearstream, Pepsi and Gilead.


The development’s location allows for easy access to both Cork city centre and Cork Airport via the N40 South Link Road. The Cork/Midleton and Cobh commuter trains are located within minutes of the development, while numerous bus routes serve the city centre and its surrounding suburbs.
