Motorhome Hire Cork

European Capital of Culture in 2005, and routinely appearing on ‘best in travel’ lists, Cork is primarily known as a cultural destination. As well as art galleries and concert halls, visitors can explore the English Market to sample authentic dishes such as buttered eggs and crubeens (deep-fried pigs’ trotters). However, Cork is also perfectly placed to allow visitors to explore the southernmost regions of Ireland. In addition to popular city break destinations such as Waterford, Limerick and Tipperary, it is also just a short drive from natural features including Killarney National Park and the roar of the Atlantic breakers on the Dingle Peninsula, part of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Getting to Cork

Cork International Airport is the second-busiest in the country. It lies to the south of the city. Aer Lingus operates flights to London Heathrow and Amsterdam all year round, while Ryanair has flights to Liverpool, London (Stansted and Luton airports) and Malaga. Air France also has seasonal (summer) flights to Paris. The M8 motorway connects Cork with Dublin to the north. It has a toll fee of around €3 for campervans. The N22 heads westward towards Killarney National Park and the Dingle Peninsula. The main rail link is also with Dublin, via the main railway station of Kent Station. Brittany Ferries connect Cork with Roscoff, France, in around 15 hours.

Parking in Cork

Parking for motorhome hire in Cork is difficult to find in the very centre, but the car park by the Cork Cricket Club in the Mardyke neighbourhood has a good reputation among campervan users. It’s approximately 10 minutes on foot from the centre, with prices of approximately €2 per hour during the day (and free overnight). Cork motorhome rentals are also welcome to use the Black Ash Park and Ride site on the southern outskirts of the city. Drivers should use the bus lane to avoid height restrictions, before buying a ticket as usual. Prices are from €5 per day. Five Foot Way Car Park in Cobh, opposite the ferry terminal, provides overnight campervan parking with toilets and showers for €10 per night.

The best time to hire a campervan in Cork

Weather graph for average temperatures in Cork
Average temperatures in Cork per month

Cork is the second-largest city in Ireland after Dublin. Located around a natural harbour called Lough Mahon, the city sits just a few kilometres from Ireland’s south coast. This makes it one of the warmest cities in Ireland, with temperatures in July and August reaching a daily average of around 15 °C. July and August are the most popular months to rent a campervan in Cork. June and September are also popular because temperatures are only a couple of degrees cooler. The days are still long and generally sunny during these months, with occasional rain showers.

An umbrella is a useful item to carry with you at any time of year, although the wettest months in Cork are generally October, December, and February. During these months temperatures don’t rise much beyond 5-7 °C, although snow is as rare as temperatures below freezing.

Outside of the main tourist season of May through to September, Cork campervan hire sees lower demand and reduced pricing as a result. However, there’s still plenty to enjoy in the city and beyond. Spring welcomes all manner of new life, from flower buds to lambs in the fields, while the fall sees the city’s residents switch outdoor activities for warming nights beside roaring fires in welcoming pubs and bars. Such nights are usually accompanied by live folk music and the sharing of stories.
