What to do while in Cork

Cork is a great city to visit, with there being loads of things to do. Begin by visiting Spike Island, which is rich in social and military history. Then check out Charles Fort, which was an important stronghold against the English invasion. Next take a trip to Mullinhassig Waterfall, which is a serene area that brings you closer to nature. You can get to this attraction in about 40 minutes with your Cork car hire. Finish off your trip at Blarney Castle and Gardens, which is beautiful both inside and out.

This is an overdue review, but I was traveling. In March, I hired a car from the Cork airport. I was dealing with a gentleman named Pete. He was very polite, accommodating and funny. He made sure that I understood all the parts of the agreement and sent me on my way. I accidentally left my water bottle there and went back to gather it. We joked about it and then also when I went back as I had forgotten to ask about a paper road map. Would I ever leave? Haha. He said that most people just use the GPS system included in the car, and they don't usually give out maps. I said that I enjoyed the wee back roads so a map would suit me better, which it absolutely did! Pete said that it was one of their last maps, so I was grateful for his search for one. It was a very pleasant and fun experience renting from Sixt! Thank you for great customer service. Slainté, Patti

Excellent customer service from polite and friendly staff.

A group of 9 of us recently visited Cork to attend the funeral of a friend and colleague. We had originally booked 3 cars online, however, when we enquired at the desk whether a minibus was available (to allow us to travel together), the Sixt team were happy to help. The booking was changed without fuss and within half an hour a minibus was fully cleaned and ready for us to take. Special thanks to Pete, who was professional, friendly and extremely helpful.

Wonderful staff, rented a car twice on both of my visits in December and Feburary. Had flight troubles and ended up being rerouted and delayed by several hours. Staff answered the phone at the airport desk and assured me they would wait for me to get there....... probably the best customer service in the business, see you again this summer.
