Cork City in detail

Getting Around


Cycle Scene rents bikes and accessories, including electric bikes (€35 a day).


Most places are within easy walking distance of the centre. Single bus tickets costs €2.20 each; a day pass is €5.40. Buy all tickets on the bus.


Street parking requires scratch-card parking discs (€2 per hour, in force 8.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday), available from many city centre shops. Be warned – traffic wardens are ferociously efficient. There are several signposted car parks around the central area, with charges around €2 per hour and €12 overnight.

You can avoid city centre parking problems by using Black Ash Park & Ride on the South City Link Rd, on the way to the airport. Parking costs €5 a day, with buses into the city centre at least every 15 minutes (10-minute journey time).
