Happy Birthday Glandore Cork!
What a year it has been, and our journey is only beginning!
Tuesday November 5th 2019, Glandore Cork celebrated its first year since opening its doors at City Quarter on Cork’s Lapps Quay. The Irish owned family run business cut the cake to celebrate an amazing first year of Growth and Collaboration in Cork city.
Since November 2018, the Glandore team have welcomed many local and international industry partners and became home to several new and existing businesses. The community we have built, continues to expand at a very fast rate reflecting the growth of the digital culture in Cork. Glandore is proud to bring together companies and give them a platform to grow and reach their goals through the support of all of our members and community.
Michael Kelly, Managing Director of Glandore said, “Glandore is delighted to be celebrating one year in Ireland’s second city or as many people refer to Cork, the real capital. We are hugely impressed with and appreciative of the reception we have received in Cork. It has been a real homecoming for Glandore.”
During the year the Glandore team has expanded and continues to welcome new members to our offices. They proudly gathered on the day to celebrate the journey Glandore Cork is on, and all the successes along the way.
“In terms of business, it has been our vision to bring our experience, professionalism, care and hospitality to local and international firms seeking a base outside Dublin, and Cork was the natural location for our expansion – it is set to become the fastest growing city in Ireland over the next number of years.”

This year Glandore Cork celebrated many successes and member business growth. ReganWall a very modern law firm, delivering strategic legal advice on M&A, investments, intellectual property, technology and commercial contracts moved in when our Glandore offices opened in Cork.
