In 2016, the county's population was 542,196, making it the third most populous county in Ireland. Notable Corkonians include Michael Collins, Jack Lynch and Sonia O'Sullivan.

Cork borders four other counties; Kerry to the west, Limerick to the north, Tipperary to the north-east and Waterford to the east. The county contains the Golden Vale pastureland and stretches from Kanturk in the north to Allihies in the south. The south-west region, including West Cork, is one of Ireland's main tourist destinations, known for its rugged coast, megalithic monuments and as the starting point for the Wild Atlantic Way.
