Add an extra dimension to your holiday in Cork by hiring a car to enjoy the splendid scenery that surrounds Ireland’s second city.
Car rental can be easily booked in advance of your holiday and you can pick up your rental car from Cork airport for the short drive into the city.
All around Cork you will find romantic castles, evocative rural scenery and dramatic coastlines. You can nip on and off the network of national routes for convenience, but you will never be too far away from evocative rural roads from which you can head off to some of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches.
For families it is just a short drive down the R264 to the delights of the Fota Wildlife Park, where kangaroos and ring-tailed lemurs will keep everyone entertained. Just a little further away the picturesque town of Cobh is set on a natural harbour and offers sailing, windsurfing, horse riding and plenty more to keep you all going.
Those with a sense of adventure can use their car rental to get off the beaten track in no time at all. Simply head towards Ballycotton to take in its romantic fishing pier and the stunning views from its clifftop walks. Of course if you’d rather take in the scenery from the comfort of your car you can just drive along the R629 between Garrymoe and Ballymacoda to enjoy the Atlantic seascapes from on high.
