Explore Cork with Irish Car Rentals

As soon as you land at Cork Airport, you’ll soon find Irish Car Rentals at the Europcar desk beside the arrivals exit doors. Our friendly team will welcome you to Cork and prepare you for your adventure in Ireland’s biggest county. We offer an unrivalled selection of cars, SUVs and people-carriers of various sizes, both manual and automatic — and with our Price Promise we won’t be beaten on price. Our cars have an average age of eight months, so you’ll be getting behind the wheel in comfort and luxury. Cork Airport is just 6.5km south of Cork city, so once you pick up, you’re only minutes away from Ireland’s second biggest city, or some of the country’s most scenic rural drives.

From the medieval to the modern

After leaving Cork Airport in your Irish Car Rentals vehicle, you’ll arrive in Cork city in comfort — in less than 20 minutes. Cork is Ireland’s second biggest city, and rurals will soon tell you that it’s Ireland’s real capital! Like Dublin, it’s built along an iconic river, with the River Lee permeating the former Viking stronghold. The drive along the quays will bring you to the stunning Cork Harbour — one of the world’s largest natural harbours, with hints of Cork’s mediaeval period along the streets north and south of the Lee. Cork is one of Ireland’s most cherished cultural hubs, with 19th century buildings nestled alongside contemporary architecture. With the city’s restaurants, festivals and theatres — and venues such as Cork Opera House, Crane Lane and Cyprus avenue, the city is a culinary and artistic hotbed. And while you’re in Cork city, you don’t want to miss the English Market, City Hall, Shannon Steeple and the recently refurbished GAA stadium Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Plan a road trip in County Cork

Away from the bustle of the ‘Real Capital’ County Cork has some truly wondrous scenic drives — either as a day trip from the city, or as part of an extended road trip. With an Irish Car rentals vehicle you can stop when you want, and enjoy your journey of discovery. No trip to wider County Cork would be complete without a stop at Clonakilty and Inchydoney Beach, the picturesque seaside villages of Cobh and Kinsale, or Youghal, with a stop-off at the Midleton Distillery to sample some of Ireland’s most famous whiskey.
