Cork Car Hire

The city of Cork is located in Cork county, the largest county in Ireland, and known as the Rebel county. The Titanic made its last stop here before its fateful journey in 1912. Cork is situated in the beautiful south west of the country, with miles of stunning coastline, spectacular scenery and multiple blue flag beaches.

Cork city centre is built on an island in the river Lee, upstream from Cork harbour, one of the finest natural harbours in the world. With many islands, rivers and bridges, and everything easily accessible, Cork is a joy to explore. Cuisine in Cork caters for all tastes and budgets, but the Man Friday restaurant in Kinsale, considered to be the gourmet capital of Ireland, is highly recommended for a true taste of the wonderful sea food abundant in the region.

Must See in Cork

St Finn Barre's Cathedral is a magnificent building, and the town has several other notable churches.

For a great view, climb Shandon Tower - and have a go at ringing the bells!

The English Market, with its elegant 19th century fountain, is the perfect place to fill your picnic basket before heading off on one of the numerous scenic drives in the harbour area, or taking the car ferry to one of the neighbouring islands.

A must see for any visitor to the area is Blarney Castle, built in 1446 by Cormaic Laidir McCarthy, where it is said that the gift of eloquence shall be bestowed upon those who kiss the famous Blarney Stone. For those wishing to find alternative ways of lubricating the throat, Cork has many bars, both traditional and modern.

Jameson Heritage Centre is well worth a trip, for a glimpse into the world of one of Ireland's most famous whiskies.

Events in Cork

With an annual jazz festival, film festival and folk festival, Cork is host to a diverse range of cultural events and with two wonderful courses within easy reach, Old Head of Kinsale Golf Club, and the Fota Island Golf Club, golfers should find the city to be perfectly located, too!
