Why rent a car in Cork with

At, we quickly compare prices on a wide range of cars, while the handy filters will help you find your perfect vehicle. We deal with all the major car hire brands (including Budget and Europcar), so we can give you access to the cheapest car hire prices in Cork. Whether you want a compact car for city driving or a prestige car for a wedding, you will find a great choice of cars on our site. Search next time you’re looking for cheap car hire in Cork.

Top Tips

  • Cork has many one-way streets in the city centre, so make sure you request a GPS or bring your own to help you find your way around.
  • The roads that connect Cork to Dublin can be very congested, and are best avoided at peak times.
  • If you drive into rural Ireland, keep an eye on the fuel gauge as petrol stations can be few and far between (and most are not open 24 hours).

Which companies offer best value in Cork?

We are pleased to say many of the companies we negotiate with in Cork have been rated as ‘superb’ or ‘excellent’ by our customers. You can see the ratings and reviews next to each listing, before you commit to a booking. If you are keen to avoid hidden fuel costs, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (plenty of suppliers offer this policy in Cork) — just remember to refill the tank before dropping the car off.

Day trips from Cork

Blarney Castle: Only 20 minutes from Cork by car, Blarney Castle is a medieval ruin built by Dermot MacCarthy, the King of Munster. For the last few hundred years, visitors have flocked to this castle to see its majestic tower and the Blarney Stone that lies at the top. Legend has it that those who kiss the Blarney Stone will never be lost for words.

The Lakes of Killarney: Just under two hours away, the Lakes of Killarney and the surrounding mountains are some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. The Lakes are a great place to hike and to experience the mystical Irish countryside. If the weather is not working in your favour, take a look around Muckross House (a 19th-century mansion) or head into the town of Killarney to enjoy the pubs and independent shops.

Mizen Head: Take a drive south-west to the Mizen Peninsula. When people talk about travel, many say, ‘it is not the destination but the journey’, and that is what this trip is all about. It will take a little over two hours to arrive at the Mizen Peninsula; however, your effort will be rewarded by dramatic cliffs, charming fishing villages, ancient ruins and windswept beaches. On a clear day, you can see Fastnet Rock, the last piece of Ireland emigrants would see when they sailed to the New World.
