Cork Airport (ORK)
Located to the south of the southern Irish City of Cork, the Cork International Airport (ORK) lies within the Ballygarvan region and close to Ballincollig, Ballinhassig, Carrigaline, Douglas and Waterfall. Cork Airport has grown to become one of Ireland's largest and most significant, handling scheduled and chartered flights to domestic, UK and other European destinations.
The airport is located around 5 km / 3 miles to the south of Cork city centre and sees more than two million passengers per year, who mainly arrive or depart on flights operated by the principal Irish carriers Aer Lingus, Aer Arann and Ryanair. Currently handling over two million yearly passengers, Cork Airport has recently unveiled its new, rather costly terminal, which features easy capacity for further growth and additional piers when required.
Cork International Airport is close to a series of main roads, such as the N8, the N20, the N22 and the N25, linking neighbouring locations such as Fermoy, Macroom, Mallow and Waterford. You can get to Cork city centre and local hotels a number of ways, including by bus (operated by Bus Eireann), shuttle bus or by taxi.
Public buses and SkyLink coaches serve Cork Airport throughout the day every 30 to 45 minutes, while several hotels provide courtesy transportation for their guests. Irish Rail (Iarnrod Eireann) also provide shuttles from the airport to the main railway station (Kent Station), which is located in Cork city centre.
