Traffic Information

Cork is a small city, so it's fairly easy to navigate. To reach cork city centre from the airport it's just a short drive on the N27 dual carriageway, before turning left on the N22 for access to many of the main business and tourist destinations. To reach the south coast of Ireland, take the N71, and to head north towards Limerick you'll need to take the N20. Although there are several dual carriageways in the Cork area, many of the roads are small, winding, country roads that may have speed limit restrictions.

Sixt Tip

Cork is a small city in the heart of rural Ireland. Surrounded by lush green countryside, it is a pretty and traditional area that draws tourists from all over the world. Its striking waterfront houses are painted in bright colours for a picture-postcard effect, and the city centre is filled with quaint historic buildings. It's well worth taking a trip outside the city when you hire a car, to see the rolling hills that are perfect for walking and hiking, as well as the coastline with its rugged beauty and charming fishing villages. And no trip to an Irish city is complete without drinking a pint of Guinness in a local pub!
