Bishopstown (Irish: Baile an Easpaig, meaning "town of the Bishop")[1] is located in the civil parish of St. Finbar's, Barony of Cork, County Cork, Ireland. It is a southwestern suburb of Cork and is made-up of the townlands of Ballineaspigbeg and Ballineaspigmore (sometimes spelled Ballinaspigmore).[2] It is near the city of Ballincollig, a satellite of Cork City, and is home to a number of schools and colleges,

Though it is sometimes suggested that the name of the area derives from an early 18th-century bishop who built his country residence there, the name can be reputedly traced back further and found in sources dating to the 16th century.[3]

Coláiste an Spioraid Naoimh is the biggest secondary school in Bishopstown with over 700 boy students.

Due to its proximity to MTU and University College Cork (UCC), Bishopstown is home to a student population who live in privately rented houses and student apartment complexes.
