What to expect when you rent a car at Cork Airport

Domestic and international flights land at Cork Airport (ORK). It's Ireland's second busiest airport after Dublin and it is located to the south of the city in the Farmer's Cross neighborhood. There is just one terminal building and, once you have landed or arrived at the airport, you can find us on the left in the arrivals area. Local roads are well maintained and signposted and the 4.7 mile drive to the city center takes just 15 minutes via the N27.

Cork, the Munster district's largest city lies on the banks of the River Lee and is considered the gateway to the South of Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland's Ancient East. The city is popular with history fans who come for landmarks like the Elizabeth Fort and the 19th century St. Finbar's Cathedral as well as lovers of modern buildings like the Lewis Gluckman Gallery. It's a great base from which to discover the scenic countryside of Ireland and Sixt car rental makes it so much easier to plan outings and road trips to Blarney Castle and its famous stone or Fota Wildlife Park and Arboretum.

Had a great experience renting with Sixt. Quickly in and out of the airport and no problems with the vehicle!

Picking up the car in Dublin and returning it in Cork was pretty painless. The car we got was very new and was perfect for us.


I docked a star because it was very expensive. They basically put a hold on your credit card for €5000 if you don't buy insurance through them and want to use your credit card car rental insurance instead. They release it if you don't get into an accident or damage the car but that is a little excessive. Not because of that we had to purchase the damage insurance through them. It was probably just a tactic to get you to do exactly that and it worked, I guess.


It also would have been cheaper if I was over 25 but, alas, I was not.

For anyone in doubt of using Sixt Car Hire in Cork Airport, I HIGHLY recommend their services. Best price for very high quality vehicles. New models with great safety features which was perfect for us since we were unfamiliar with driving on the left side of the road.


Upon my arrival at Cork Airport, Pete was extremely receptive and helpful in understanding my requests for a car. He quoted me a price that far exceeded my expectations for the car that I was able to rent and the level of service provided was of the highest I’ve received during my time in Ireland. Pete took the time to give us recommendations on places to visit, and extensively discuss the details needed to understand the roads here in Ireland which is absolutely what we needed in order to adjust (from driving on the other side of the road). This trip would not have gone NEARLY as smoothly without Pete so for anyone looking to get QUALITY car hire, USE SIXT!


We ended up renting a second time with Sixt (technically third because we rented with Sixt in Belfast for a weekend trip thanks to Pete who put us in contact with their office and helped us to get a great rate AGAIN).


For our last rental in Cork, Richard and Elaine were extremely helpful as well in providing recommendations and were very personable as well. They even offered to print something for me that I would have otherwise had to leave the airport and pay to get a document printed.


I enjoyed my experience with Sixt so much that I will absolutely use this company in the future and recommend this company to everyone.
