Cork South Central ( _ga. Corcaigh Theas Lár) is a constituency represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. The constituency has an electorate of 90,237 and at present is served by 5 Teachtaí Dála (TDs). The method of election is the Single Transferable Vote.

The constituency was created for the first time under the terms of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1980, mainly drawing its electorate from the existing Cork Mid and Cork City constituencies.

Cork South Central is predominantly an urban constituency and encompasses the electoral areas of Cork City Council south of the river Lee, together with most of the largely suburban Carrigaline electoral area of Cork County Council, including the Ringaskiddy and Passage West areas. At the most recent boundary revisions, the Ballincollig area was moved to the Cork North West constituency for the 2007 general election.

The most high profile TD in the constituency is the current Minister for Enterprise, Trade & Employment, Micheál Martin.
