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

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.
