Bus Éireann provides a bus service to the city centre, costing about €5. Another option is to take a taxi for about €15 which takes 5-10 minutes.

Alternatively Dublin airport is a 3.5 hour bus journey from Cork, operated by Aircoach for about €25 return. If you spend time in Dublin, its also possible to get a 2.5 hour train from Dublin Heuston station to Cork's Kent station for between €40 - €65 return.
