Cork Airport car hire

Our Cork Airport car hire offers premium vehicles, with models ideally suited to this centuries-old world metropolis. You’ll get affordable luxury, with cars on average only 3 months old, and from top European brands. Book extras like a sat nav, or car seats if you’re travelling with your children. A compact city car will make a great choice if you want to explore Cork itself, as it can get quite congested, particularly on its older, narrower streets. There are also many tourist attractions around the city, making an MPV a good choice, with plenty of ride height and larger windows.

Explore Cork with your car hire

Cork began life as an island and now spans both banks of the River Lee. To experience the city one of the best options is to take a walking tour past the Cathedral and the University riverside quadrangle up the hill to red and white Shandon Church. En route, you'll encounter plenty of the city's friendly residents. Why not use the car to visit the city's historic Gaol or do a day tour in your car hire of the ring of Kerry and Killarney with its beautiful sea views.

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.
