Cork has a huge bus station where there are coaches coming into and out of the city every 30 minutes or so.It is probably the best way of getting into the city without the hustle of trying to find a parking space. Black cabs are quite reasonable and can be found close to the bus station.
Definately by walking, you can admire the tall buildings, spot out the bars and restaurants you fancy trying out and have fun getting lost in the back alleys!!!
I went to cork Via dublin.
public transport wise the best 2 options are bus or train.
by bus it is about 4 hours from Dublin and by train 3.
by bus which is how i got there its 15.50 per person return(irish money)
i think the train was 19.
bus eirean runs more often than the train service and arrives at at a closer spot to the city central.
Sure the bus trip is a little long but there is some great things to look at along the way including a couple of wicked castles.
work this out I stay in cheap lodging then i use taxi's every where lol.
the good thing about cork city is its easy to travel around by foot.
the best way to get to blaney castle is by buse make sure you grab a time table to find out how often they leave cork as the pick up times are about every 2 hours or so.
if you go to the pretty town of cobh then take a train.
the veiw along the coast line is worth the fare itself.
the veryu best way is to hire a car and drive your self.the roads are okay and traffic is super light.
