Hi Lynn, It would be the 226 bus from Cork Airport and stops on the South Mall which is where the hotel is also located. Prices for an adult are €3.90 single and €6.50 return. Hope this helps. Looking forward to welcoming you to the Imperial Hotel, Mark

Does the Imperial Hotel offer disability parking?
I'm not sure about this one

You pay at reception for the car parking and are given a map to the car park. It is very simple to reach and about 3 minutes drive away. Tons of spaces but a hassle to get back to the hotel when leaving by car because of the one way road system. But maybe I'm just a bit slow.
