Cobh Cruise Terminal is Approx. 40 minuets by road (Subject to traffic) from Cork International Airport.
Taxi’s are readily available at the airport as is car hire, we would suggest these methods as no direct public transport.
If you prefer public transportation then this would require first the bus from airport arrivals (signed for City Centre) to the train station, followed by the Cobh train, or alternatively the same bus from the airport to the city, followed by the “Cobh Connect” bus from the city to Cobh.
