The site is located 2.5km west of Cork city center on a prominent south facing hillside site, beside Wellington Bridge across from the Kingsley Hotel and Cork County Hall, this prominent site includes the former St Kevin’s Hospital – now in a dilapidated state.
The entire site extends to approximately 14 acres and offers expansive views over the western suburbs of the city.
It is in close proximity to Cork City Centre, University College Cork, Fitzgerald’s Park and The Mardyke Arena & Leisure Centre.
The majority of the site is situated in an area zoned ‘Residential, Local Services and Institutional Uses’ in the Cork City Development Plan 2015-2021.
The LDA will repurpose this well-known Cork landmark into an attractive residential development with a mix of social, affordable and private homes.
