  • cork airport parking rates

    by turas Written Jul 4, 2008

    be careful leaving your car in cork airport car park, rates are a rip off! ive been caught once or twice, leave your car in the long term car park , not the short term!
    expect to pay anytjing up to 35- 40 euro for leaving your car for 2 to 3 days , you have been warned!

    Unique Suggestions: ask for parking daily rates, long term versus short term car park rates e.t.c

    Fun Alternatives: get a hackney(cheaper form of taxi) to and from the airport , their numbers can be found in the yellow pages

    No money and trapped in the middle of nowhere!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ferry terminal for Cork is 10 miles south, next to a small village, Ringaskiddy. It is a large waiting area lounge with a TV.

    There is NO currency facilities, the Bureau de Change closed for good and the nearest cashpoint machine is 5 miles away in the next town. So if, like me, you arrive with no Euros, things look bleak!

    However, what the staff at the desk don't tell you is that the driver of the coach to Cork usually accepts British money too!! In my case, the taxi driver told me this when we were already well on our way to Cork!!!

    Unique Suggestions: Ask the driver of the special Cork bus if s/he will take other currencies.

    Fun Alternatives: (a) Walk five miles with your luggage to Carrigaline for the cashpoint.

    (b) Steal a boat and row the couple of miles to Cobh

    (c) Stay for the duration of your holiday in a remote TV lounge with no food

    welcome to ringaskiddy

    Off the Beaten Path: Most of what Ireland has to offer is 'off the beaten path.' That is Irelands charm. But with the new Irish economy the CELTIC TIGER as its called is changing the entire fabric of the country. High tech jobs are somewhat abundant and americans are actually moving back to the 'auld sod' in record numbers. Its looking to be an incredible future for the Emerald
