"Kent Station to City Centre" Cork Transportation Tip by orlanemo

Cork Transportation: 39 reviews and 39 photos

Kent Station is technically in the City Centre however depending on your mobility and luggage you may prefer to take a bus. The No. 5 Bus Eireann City Bus picks up from within the grounds of Kent Station.

Directions to bus stop from main platforms:
After leaving the train walk into the main concourse past the ticket office and past the plastic seating to your right, heading towards the Main Doors. Outside you will see a striped black and white pedestrian crossing. Cross here and to your left is a bus shelter which is both the pick up and drop off point for the No. 5. (If the weather is bad stay in the doorway of the station until it arrives as the "shelter" offers very little shelter from the rain)

This is the bus time table:
But don't expect it to be on time, however it is regular so you should not have too long a wait.

The bus heads away from the city to begin with as it is a one-way road outside the Station. Then it turns back towards the city, goes through Patrick Street (tourist attractions), onto Washington Street (pubs and night life), past UCC (point of interest in itself), the start Western Road (location of many guest houses).

It should cost about ?1.65 for a single journey.
