Cork University Press aims to stimulate Irish learning by reflecting distinctive and distinguished scholarship in its publications. The Press began publishing in 1925 and is the oldest university press in Ireland. Our philosophy has been to encourage a broad spectrum of debate in the field of Irish Studies by publishing research which engages with contemporary cultural debate.

Owing to the spread of Irish Studies in third level (university) institutions during recent decades, throughout North America, Europe and Australia, research in the field has increased in depth and range. While the Press specialises in the broad field of Irish Cultural Studies, our subject range extends across the fields of music, art history, literary criticism and poetry.


Due to increased costs across supply chain and in the cost of printing paper, there will be a small price adjustment on our new titles. These increases ensure our commitment to providing the high quality books you expect from Cork University Press.
