Midleton

Midleton is a town in Co Cork. It is located in the south-east of the county, around 16km east of Cork City on the Owenacurra River and the N25 road, which connects Cork to the port of Rosslare. A satellite town of Cork City, Midleton is part of Metropolitan Cork. It is the central hub of business for the East Cork Area. Midleton has a growing population, employed locally in retail, light manufacturing, food production, tourism and whiskey distilling. At nearby Whitegate is the state's first gas-fired power station as well as Ireland's only oil refinery. Many Midleton residents also commute to jobs in Cork, Carrigtwohill and Little Island. Traditionally the main commercial and retail area of the town was on the Main Street and this continues to offer varied shopping primarily with local ownership. In recent years the commercial part of Midleton has expanded to the old site of Midleton Mart, now called Market Green. A number of multinational retailers have established themselves in Midleton including Tesco, Lidl, McDonalds, Boots, Aldi and Subway. The Market Green shopping centre is located at the northern end of the town. This includes a five-screen cinema, Tesco and other stores and the Midleton Park Hotel on the other side of Tesco. A locally owned supermarket, Hurley's Super-Valu, is also located at the northern end of the town opposite the so-called 'Gooses Acre'. Lidl, Aldi and McDonalds are located in a new shopping and residential area alongside the river. On Saturdays the park next to SuperValu is the site for the popular Midleton Farmers' Market – one of the first such markets to be established since their renaissance in Ireland. Midleton is also the home of one of Ireland's premier tourist destinations – the Old Midleton Distillery which includes the largest pot-still in the world. In 2015, the large steel scupture Kindred Spirits was installed in Bailic Park. Midleton railway station is on the Cork Suburban Rail Network and is one of two terminus (the other being Cobh) into and out of Cork Kent Railway Station, where passengers can interchange for trains to Dublin and Tralee. Bus Éireann run bus services to and from Midleton. You can get the bus to Ballycotton, Whitegate, Cork City, Waterford, Ballinacurra and Carrigtwohill. There are numerous sports clubs in the area including GAA, rugby, soccer and cricket teams.
