Getting Around

Most places you'll need to get to are within easy walking distance of the city center. If you're driving, be warned that Cork has six bridges across the River Lee and traffic in the downtown area is prone to heavy congestion. The public transport is a neat mix of bus and train services. The ferry terminal is at Ringaskiddy, about 15 minutes by car southeast from the city center along the N28.

Direct scheduled and charter flights link Cork to destinations in Ireland, the UK and continental Europe. Regular ferries link Cork with the UK and France. You can get to most places in Ireland from Cork by bus, and there are regular train services to Dublin, Limerick, Tralee and Killarney.

Health and Safety

Cork cherishes its reputation as being a less hard-skinned place than Dublin, but watch out for drunken scenes around central pubs and clubs late at night.
