Cork Transport


Local and regional bus transport is provided by Bus Eireann, with routes covering the city and linking Cork to surrounding suburbs. The main regional bus terminal is at Parnell Place in the city centre, with buses departing to various destinations in Ireland throughout the day. Tickets can be bought online, at booking offices or from the bus driver. It's a good idea to consider getting a Leap card, which entitles travellers to a discount, and means they don't need to carry cash.

Kent Station acts as the city's primary railway hub, with local and regional lines provided by Irish Rail. Three local lines connect Cork with Mallow to the north, Cobh to the southeast and Middleton to the east. Long-distance rail connects Cork to other major Irish cities. Tickets can be purchased online or at station booking offices.

Private taxi services operate throughout the city and cabs can either be booked in advance or hailed at taxi ranks throughout the city. There are several cycle routes within the city and bicycles can be hired from several outlets.
