Getting to Cork
Cork International Airport is the country’s second busiest airport after Dublin, and serves more than 50 destinations. The airport is 10–20 minutes from Cork City centre by car. Flight information can be found at www.corkairport.com.
The 226 and 226A buses go directly from Cork Airport to Parnell Place Bus Station near the city centre (20 minute journey, every half hour, €2.80). From the Bus Station, you can catch the 208 bus to various stops on Western Road near the listed accommodation (20 minute journey, usually every 10 minutes, €2.40; tell the driver where you need to go). There is also a taxi rank across the street from the East side of the Bus Station. If you take a taxi from the airport (taxi rank outside and to the right), the cost should be about €20–25.
Cork can also be reached by connecting through a number of major European airports (https://www.corkairport.com/destinations/route-map). If you choose a flight that goes into Dublin, you can get to Cork from Dublin Airport using various direct airport buses; the journey typically takes less than 4 hours, and all services stop either at the Parnell Place Bus Station or across the river from the Bus Station.
