Car hire in Cork

Cork may well be the new cultural heart of Ireland, rivaling big sister Dublin. With its buzzing persona, up-and-coming art scene and gastronomic delights aplenty, Cork is a destination you do not want to leave off your ‘must-visit’ list. See all that the 2005 City of Culture has to offer by driving among the charm of the old and the new. Witness 17th century alleys, traditional Irish pubs situated next to modern masterpieces, local music talents and flash restaurants before heading out of the city to the likes of Kinsale or Blarney. Compare cheap car hire in Cork with CompareCarHire.co.uk to make the most of your majestic getaway.

Why to visit

Cork’s turbulent but interesting history is noticeable in the fabric of the city, making it an interesting place to visit. The locals are proud and welcoming, and the emergence of a modern side to Cork only compliments the city without taking away from its rugged roots. Explore Cork’s evolution with a visit to the Vision Centre, which covers everything from the city’s long history to its future development. As many of the attractions of Cork are outside the city, self-drive is the best option for reaching nearby places like Blarney.

Transport

Cork Airport is located just eight kilometers south of the city centre. There are taxis available on arrival at the airport and an adequate public transport system. But the most suitable means of transport is via Cork car hire, allowing you to zoom off to explore the surrounding areas of the grandiose city. Trains connect Dublin with Cork, whose small city centre is best traversed on foot.

What to see and do

With car rental in Cork, you can travel to the port where you can board a ferry to neighboring Llnacullin Island. This peaceful but popular tourist destination lies 40kms away from Cork and contains 15 hectares of gardens that are extremely impressive. Or go on a family day out to the fun-filled Fota Wildlife Park, just 15kms out of the city, or see a snapshot of Cork’s history in a little piece of land off Cork Harbour, known as Spike Island.
