Cork airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

All the Cork Airport car rental desks can be found in the arrivals hall opposite baggage reclaim.

What should I buy at duty free?

Pick up some locally produced cheese and smoked salmon to take home.

Are there any cashpoints?

The bureau de change and two ATM’s are located on the lower level near the Eason’s book store. Check carefully which ATM you’re using - one dispenses Euros, the other Sterling.

Where's the best place to eat?

There are several cafés and restaurants serving up snacks and light meals in the airport, but if what you really need is a pick-me-up, then head to Cork Coffee Roasters in the arrivals hall.

The secret tip

If there’s a few of you, maximise your holiday time by splitting up when you get to the airport. Let the driver get the car, everyone else can collect luggage, maps from tourist information and some Euros from the cash machine and in no time you’ll be on the road.

Cork airport the gateway to...

Blarney Castle

Distance: 5 miles

A visit to this site is now a well-established tradition for any visitor to Ireland. People flock here for one thing, to quite literally bend over backwards, pucker up and kiss the Blarney Stone. Also known as the Stone of Eloquence, it’s said to bestow powers of articulation on its smoocher so you might come away with a lot to say.


Distance: 13 miles

A visit to the coastal town of Kinsale makes for a great day out. Known for its fantastic gastronomy, cliff-top golf course, fishing and general all-round picturesque loveliness, it’s popular with locals and tourists alike. In the summer months it can get busy, but the locals expect this and the B&B’s or supermarkets will let you park the car rental in their parking areas for free.


Distance: 17 miles

If you want to inject a little colour into your holiday then head to Cobh. This town on Great Island, one of three off the coast which is accessible by bridge, is filled with brightly painted houses and is also a great place to visit if you want to understand a little of Ireland’s history. Cobh was one of the main points of departure for citizens fleeing the famine and sailing for new lives overseas. The harbour itself has many stories, including being the last stopping port for the Titanic and the place at which the Lusitania sank in 1915.
