ICC is a multicultural community open to people living in Cork: foreign nationals, students, au-pairs, young professionals and locals connected to or interested in other cultures and languages.
We host regular social gatherings where people can meet, socialise and practice languages. ICC events will allow you to broaden your horizons and to meet interesting people.
The ICC team is made up of volunteers from all over the world. We are there to greet you and help you find someone who speaks the language you’re looking to improve.

Hi, I’m Irene and I’m from sunny Spain! I have been enjoying the rain on the Emerald Isle since 2013. My passions include cycling, meeting new people and travelling. If there’s one thing I’ll always remember from living here in Ireland, it is that the best reason to do anything is ‘for the craic’!
