I agree with the earlier comments, a lovely, easy-to-use, airport. Flew in and out on Aer Lingus Heathrow service - inbound parked against and airbridge, outbound, no airbridge but it was a lovely day!

Lovely new spacious Terminal building, but needs some atmosphere. Also, need to return Rome to their departures listing. Airbridges would be useful, as most of the times I've been through there, it's raining and passengers get wet walking the tarmac to the terminal building, then no lift to the next level, only stairs.

Airport is great for tourist travel but poor for business. No fast track through security. Business lounge is small and poorly kept (dirty drinking glasses, poor availability of food, dirty tables). That's a pity as otherwise airport is great.

Cork airport is a new modern building. I had no lost baggage. I flew with Aer Lingus. Airport has nice catering with cafes and shops. The loop is very nice. Easy accessible parking.

Nice airy new building spoilt by lack of airside facilities. No airbridge, no hot food, no water fountain. Free wi-fi though.

Clean, spacious, check in is quick and bag pick up on return is relatively quick - exactly what you want in a terminal to be fair. I have used this airport a number of times and its design makes the place look cavernous - some music on speakers please as there is no atmosphere whatsoever and it is always seems eerie quiet. Also, no airbridges in 2012. Cork get it together! What is the point in having a palace of an airport only to walk across the tarmac in the pouring rain getting drenched, the howling wind and cold! Also on arrival - one faces flights of stairs to get into the terminal - especially when you see a 2 airbridges idle and which appear out of use.

I was impressed with the Terminal and facilities. A longish wait in Departures was no problem as its spacious and airy. Free Wi-Fi and decent book shop bonus points too.

I haven't been to Cork since the new terminal building opened. On a Sunday morning the airport was quiet but we skipped through immigration and bags were back to us very quickly. The new layout is functional but it appears to work well.

Despite airbridges, had to walk across a cold, rain drenched apron, likewise on departure. Then up two flights of stairs to get to passport control. A woman just bypassed the queue at this stage and walked out through an unmanned desk. Remarkable. Luggage took a while to arrive on the carousel, our aircraft was the only one on the apron. Departure was more buisness like.

Modern terminal; efficient staff; pleasant place to be. Would welcome a water fountain airside. If more airports were like this, life would be better.

Landside the new terminal is very good, check in desks very organised, and good for snacks and meals, bank, wcs etc. Although airside is poor regarding food and drink outlets. Nice panoramic view of runway from departure gates and lounge area.

The new terminal at Cork is much larger than the old one, but is still easy to get around. The baggage halls are poor. There are also very few seating areas in baggage hall. The check-in halls and the departures areas are much better, and have good views of the ramp area, which is nice. There is also a much improved selection of eating areas before security, although it is limited once airside.


Cork Airport review by Alexander Mayhew

12 August 2006

New terminal just opened and looks very european - spacious, good layout and good sign posting. New terminal only being used for arrivals at the minute and so departures was through the old terminal which was unfortunate. On departure, the duty free shop sells books and magazines but no newspapers, a sign says that newspapers are available for sale before you go through security but to get to the duty free shop in the first place you have to pass through security with no one allowed back out - I hope someone works that one out before the new terminal opens for departures.

Cork Airport review by Simon Boxall

8 April 2006

An easy airport to get through. Current terminal is very small. Departure lounge has six gates, but there are not enough seats for all the passengers of six flights. There were only three flights waiting to leave when I was there two weeks ago, and already all the seats were taken, with a large number of people standing. I hate to think what it would be like in the height of summer when all six gates are taken. However this should all be remedied when the new larger terminal building is opened. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and adequate parking.

Cork Airport review by Alan Wan

21 February 2006

Arrived there for a daytrip from LHR. It was quite a walk across the tarmac, but this should be sorted when the new terminal is opened. On departure the eating facilities on landside were adequate for a small airport. On airside there was pretty much nothing to do. It was restricted to a very limited bar and the usual duty free shop

Cork Airport review by Nico Nieuwstraten

9 October 2005

With the new automated Boarding Pass terminals the check-in is pretty speedy which makes the check-in efficient. Restaurant & bar upstairs are reasonable and deliver good quality food & drink (helpful staff!). Friendly ground-personnel and no need to run a marathon to reach the gate makes it a relaxing experience. Once you go though the security and passport check you seem to arrive in quite a different country all-together: 'tax-free' is a complete rip-off, prices of salmon are triple(!) of that in Cork (same trademark and quantity) so duly you bleed for your families request. A cup of coffee at the bar suffers the same added-value while seemingly being made out a mixture of tarmac and dishwater, here the personnel seems to be trained not to understand any language (I tried 3) and so ignoring my protest (he was probably rightfully to ashamed to respond). The permanent wind over the tarmac - Cork airport is on the top of a hill - blows you right in the direction of your plane. Arriving back is a breeze, after a good lunch upstairs (I don't like the grub in planes), missing the bus I queried a cab-driver: € 42 for airport to Cobh so I informed him it was € 30 the other way around with a Cobh taxi firm, his response: 'Ah ye see, that's why we don't allow them for pickup any fares from here', welcome home.

Cork Airport review by Brian Dromey

17 February 2005

In the past Cork was a really handy airport to travel through, but with the current building works parking, landside and airside facilities are totally overcrowded. The airport is currently growing at 30% per year, so the 1960's terminal is not capable of handling in excess of 3 million passengers per year. Hopefully the new terminal will restore the previous ease of use. International links are growing at a rapid rate, with EI, WW, EZY FR, all adding new flights. All that is lacking is a star alliance presence, this would help connections, as the airport is currentloy dominated by EI / one world / LHR for connections.


Cork Airport review by Greg Murphy

5 August 2004

Cork is handy, with a Bus Eireann Coach service every 30 mins into Cork city itself. The city is not at all far away so if in a group I'd get a taxi. The airport has a very warm feeling at Christmas time when it welcomes all its lost sons and daughters home.  I believe a planned expansion is about to take place? I would like to see more services between Cork & LHR, not to mention international flights - perhaps all in time. The downside to this airport has to be its cafes and restaurants- especially airside- its terrible. Instead I find myself wandering aimlessly over the fragrances until my senses have been somewhat numbed. After which, I'm ready to board a plane (usually to STN and its horrific onward connections).
