Cork Airport presides over southern Ireland and provides access to the entire region. With that in mind, this is one of the leading transport hubs in Ireland, with routes and motorways connecting across the region and beyond.
The city itself is only 8 kilometres from the terminal – just a short drive north. A full complement of buses, taxis and hire cars are on hand to help passengers connect to their onward destinations. Given the amount of scenic driving to enjoy in this part of the country, hiring a car makes particular sense for many visitors.
Here is a breakdown of the transport offerings at Cork International Airport:
Cheap car hire at Cork Airport can be arranged in the Arrivals Hall. Car hire desks, including those of Europcar, are on the outside wall near the exit. Pick-up procedures are quick and easy, and passengers will be on their way in no time.
There are two main bus companies operating at Cork Airport: Bus Éireann and City Link. Bus Éireann runs to and from the city centre and facilitates a transfer to the rail station. City Link focuses on regional transport to other Irish cities – primarily Galway and Limerick.
Metered taxis are in full supply at Cork Airport. They are relatively expensive when compared to discount car hire rates or travel by bus. All the same, taxis can be particularly convenient for arriving passengers who need to get on their way as soon as possible.
