The Elysian is a mixed-use Celtic Tiger-era building at Eglinton Street in Cork, Ireland. Construction of the building was completed in early September 2008. When built it was the tallest building in the Republic of Ireland. Since the completion of Capital Dock in the Dublin Docklands in 2018, it has become the second tallest building in the Republic of Ireland.
It consists of a number of connected 6-8 storey buildings, with a 17-storey tower on the southwest corner of the site. The tower is 68.28 metres (224 ft) to the top floor, making it the second tallest storeyed building in the Republic of Ireland. The complex includes an enclosed Japanese garden and a two-level basement garage.
