cork buses

by baaughenm

What buses run from the railway station into the city centre.. and at what times on a Saturday morning after 10 am and returning in the afternoon?

Does the Hop-on, hop-off bus pick up at the railway station?

Re: cork buses

by puerto_lover

I don't know about HOHO buses but the railway station at CORK KENT on Lower Glanmire Road is about 10 minutes walk to the town.
Interestingly, the web site of Irish Rail say this about station transport facilities:
Location:
Station is located 10 minutes from Cork City centre.
Bus Eireann is 8 minutes from station.

Local City bus services are on this page by the way. Am not sure which bus they refer to that is 8 minutes away.

"Am not sure which bus they refer to that is 8 minutes away."
I believe they are referring to the main Bus Eireann bus station, not to any particular local bus route.

Hi,
Yes Kent Station is technically in the City Centre however depending on your mobility and luggage you may prefer to take a bus. The No. 5 Bus Eireann City Bus picks up from within the grounds of Kent Station.

Directions to bus stop from main platforms:
After leaving the train walk into the main concourse past the ticket office and past the plastic seating to your right, heading towards the Main Doors. Outside you will see a striped black and white pedestrian crossing. Cross here and to your left is a bus shelter which is both the pick up and drop off point for the No. 5. (If the weather is bad stay in the doorway of the station until it arrives as the "shelter" offers very little shelter from the rain)

This is the bus time table:

But don't expect it to be on time, however it is regular so you should not have too long a wait.

The bus heads away from the city to begin with as it is a one-way road outside the Station. Then it turns back towards the city, goes through Patrick Street (tourist attractions), onto Washington Street (pubs and night life), past UCC (point of interest in itself), the start Western Road (location of many guest houses).

It should cost about €1.65 for a single journey.

Travel Tips for Cork

Drinking Beer

by gueto

Drinking beer in Cork (the rest of Ireland as well)is not a local custom, it's rather a primarily need.
I've seen people transform themselves after drinking but in Cork is a complete different story. Sometimes I've seen that people needed to drink in order to be brave enough to talk to someone. Nonetheless I can't deny that the beer is espectacular. Well, the photo is my witness.

Tony Hawks - Round Ireland with a fridge

by HORSCHECK

The book "Round Ireland with a fridge" written by Tony Hawks is an useful companion for an Ireland trip. It tells the true story of a bet that Tony cannot hitch hike around the circumference of Ireland with a fridge within one calender month. On his trip Tony visits many irish places and their unique people. The book is easy to read and gets you laughing out loud.

Walk from Kinsale to Charles Fort for great views

by Waoife

While a good few people visit Charles Fort in Summercove (near Kinsale) many drive from Kinsale and so miss a very pleasant walk. Plus they face the "fun" of driving in Summercove to get to the fort (a village that was most definitely not built with cars in mind!!)

Go to the Spaniard Pub just at the edge of Kinsale (anyone will be able to give you directions). Just across the road is a laneway - go down the hill and turn left and walk to Summercove along the coast with great views of both Kinsale & Summercove (this is pedestrianised - do NOT attempt to take a car along this road!). Be warned though that there's a lot of wild garlic growing in the area so it can be a bit smelly there at times - nice smell if you're fond of your food though and it keeps the vampires away ;-P

Also there is quite a steep hill at the end of the walk, followed by a walk down into Summercove and up another hill to the Fort. Still the whole walk only takes around half an hour one way so it's not exactly strenuous & is far more picturesque than the car trip!!

After visiting the fort, stop for a drink at the Bulman pub in Summercove, where you'll find loads of people sitting outside admiring the view in the Summertime - a very pleasant way to spend a lazy afternoon.

There are many bars/clubs

by royston1 about Scotts bar

Cork is a very bust night spot area, with a choice of bars and clubs to die for. You can not go wrong, just head for St patrick st, and you will find a nite spot for you.. The dress code is very casual, just look good of rthe ladies, or men if you are female...
