Returning Your Car Rental at Cork Airport

Cork Airport

Where do I return my car

There is so much to see and do in Cork, and visitors have so much to see, do and enjoy. Holidays in southern Ireland have a habit of winding down before you’re ready to go home. All the same, if you are driving a Cork Airport car rental, you’ll at least be able to get off the road and back into the air in a timely manner.

From Cork City Centre

The return procedure usually takes just a few minutes, but CARHIRE.ie officially recommends allotting 30 minutes just in case there are any complications. The airport is 8 kilometres south of Cork City Centre, and can be reached in about 15 minutes outside of rush hour. If you are coming from the city itself, take the N27 (south link road). At the Kinsale Road Roundabout, take the 2nd exit. Drive up the hill approx 3km going straight through traffic lights until you reach the next roundabout. Take the 3rd exit into the airport. Follow the signs for the 'Car Rental Return Car Park'. At the 5th roundabout, take the 1st exit and our compound is directly on your right.

From Killarney/West Cork

From Kerry, drive along the N22 until you reach the Kinsale Roundabout and take the 4th exit. Drive up the hill approx 3km going straight through traffic lights until you reach the next roundabout. Take the 3rd exit into the airport. Follow the signs for the 'Car Rental Return Car Park'. At the 5th roundabout, take the 1st exit and our compound is directly on your right

From Dublin/Waterford

Drive directly through the Jack Lynch tunnel (N25 West). Follow the road for approx 5km, take the 2nd exit on this road (signposted for Cork Airport), stay in the left hand lane at all times. When you come to the roundabout take the 1st exit. Drive up the hill approx 3km going straight through traffic lights until you reach the next roundabout. Take the 3rd exit into the airport.

You’ll be dropping your Cork Airport rental car at the same car park where you picked it up. Pull into the lot and let the associate know that you are returning your hire car. The terminal is just around the corner – a short walk away. Stop by the help desk in the terminal and drop off the keys with the associate.
