It’s a view reserved for residents only.
But a local artist has captured the jaw-dropping vista from the top of Cork’s tallest building for the rest of us to enjoy at street level.
Portrait and cityscape painter Keith Anderson was given access to the top floor of The Elysian apartment complex, the second tallest building in Ireland at 68.28 metres (224 ft), where he took a number of 360 degree photographs to work from.
The resulting oil on canvas, created in 2021, is an incredibly realistic rooftop view across the city, as the light catches iconic Cork spots from the South Mall right up to the Water Tower in Knocknaheeny.

Sharing the piece again on Twitter, Keith said the painting is currently hanging in his home, however, prints are available to purchase if you’d like to get your hands on a copy for your own walls.
You can check out Keith’s work and order prints, including city views from Bell’s Field, Patrick’s Hill, St Patrick’s Bridge, Fountainstown, and Gougane Barra here.
