Co. Cork and, in particular, the city of Cork is where you will find the ‘true Ireland’. At least according to the locals, who often refer to Ireland’s Second City as the real capital of Ireland and it’s in that city centre where you’ll find Europcar’s Cork location.
Cork City, originally founded as a monastic settlement by Saint Finbarr in the 6th century, is known as a multi-cultural hub of vibrant creativity but, at the same time, is home to centuries of history and heritage. The people are famous for their friendliness and hospitality, as well as being fiercely proud of their city. In Blarney Castle sits the famous Stone of Eloquence, which thousands of visitors come to kiss every year, while Saint Mary’s and Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedrals, the Red Abbey, and Cork City Market are also big draws. Cork is also world class destination when it comes to dining and shopping, as well as being many visitors first glimpse of Ireland, as Cork Airport handles flights from many UK and European destinations.
Co. Cork, outside of the city, offers some of Ireland’s most amazing landscapes and scenery, like the Mizen Head peninsula and its dramatic cliffs, easy to find as it’s about as far south-westerly as you can go. Parts of the Beara Peninsula bring visitors back time and again, as does the Sheep’s Head peninsula, another natural land formation, wedged between Dunmanus Bay and Bantry Bay, which presents visitors with astonishing views in every direction. Slightly newer attractions to Co. Cork come in the shape of the Jameson Experience, a tour and presentation of how Jameson produced its quality whiskey for over 200 years, based in the retired distillery in Midleton, and Fota Wildlife Park, home to cheetahs, zebras, giraffe, monkeys, and many more exotic animals, that has the distinction of being Co. Cork’s most visited attraction.
Europcar in Co. Cork can be found on South Terrace, just south of Cork city centre, and in the main terminal at Cork Airport. These locations can cater to leisure customers and business customers, availing of the flexible short, medium and long-term business fleet management service offered by Europcar, as well as customers renting a van.
