Cork Airport is situated just to the south of the city of Cork, in south-east Ireland. It’s the country’s third busiest airport and has grown rapidly since its creation in 1957. Today’s Cork Airport has a modern, new terminal building providing a wide range of car hire, food and drink and retail outlets – as well as the obligatory duty free.

Attractions for waiting passengers include a sports bar, while anyone waiting to pick up people from arrivals can make use of the airport’s onsite multi-storey car park. This is connected to the main terminal building by a covered walkway and has 630 spaces.

Passengers needing car hire on arrival will find several car rental offices in the terminal. Although walk-up car rental is usually possible, you often won’t get the best rates this way and comparing them takes time. Why not book in advance with our car hire search engine? You can then ensure that you find the cheapest rate and you will save time on paperwork on your arrival in Cork.
