Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland and a major hub of several important routes, including the M8 to Dublin, the N20 to Limerick and the N25 to Waterford and Rosslare.


Southern Ring and the Inner Orbital Route

Traffic flows in and around Cork, once a major bottleneck, have been transformed by the opening of the Cork Southern Ring and Jack Lynch Tunnel (now the N40) in 1999, allowing most major routes to bypass the city entirely on high-quality grade-separated dual carriageways. Within the city itself, there is an urban ring road made up of existing streets, to try and manage traffic flows within the town.

Cork City Railway

Cork was notable for having both a passenger tram network, as well as heavy rail running in shared space with road users along city streets. The heavy rail operated from 1912 to 1976 - although most of the service had closed by 1961.


Ferries and The Port

The Eeborg loading/unloading at the Port of Cork

Car ferries from Cork run from nearby Ringsakiddy; however, a port exists within the east of the city on the River Lee where freight is still loaded and unloaded.


The river forms an important part of the city, bisecting the centre with its north and south channels and many bridges:
