Cork is situated as one of the most Northerly points of Ireland, and boasts a wonderful coastline and breathtaking views. It is the 3rd largest city in Ireland and as a mark of it’s cultural and historical impact, it was named as the European Capital Culture in 2005.

The city has a fairly mild, typically North-European climate, and although this may result in cooler temperatures from time to time, it also gives birth to a wonderfully diverse and natural wildlife habitat throughout the city and surrounding areas.

As you would expect from a city crowned the European Capital Of Culture, there is a vibrant cultural atmosphere throughout Cork, with the famous ‘Cork Jazz Festival’ taking pride of place within the cultural calendar.

Bustling with high-quality theatrical productions and street entertainment, along with both modern and more traditional shopping areas, Cork is perfect for those mid-afternoon strolls and leisurely drives through the gloriously diverse countryside.

Arriving Cork Airport

Cork airport is primarily a base for the airlines Aer Lingus and Ryanair, with a smattering of other airways also serving Cork.

Taxi cabs tend to cost around $20 (€15) to get to the city centre and most city hotels and attractions. The airport has 45 check-in desks and tends to be slightly quieter than most international airports; therefore waiting times are greatly decreased.

The airport has a food court, which is currently served by the Italian Auto Grill, but there are various other restaurants located in the court, as well as a popular book shop and a Londis Mini-Market. There is also a sports bar located in the main terminal for those all-important pre/post flight drinks!
