Map and Directions


From Cork Airport: Bus Eireann run a service to the Bus Station in the city centre or take a Taxi!

From the Bus Station:
We're a 10 minute walk from the bus station in Cork. The bus station is on the river and if you face the river and look up to your left you'll see the top of Shandon Bells (a clock tower with a golden fish on top - official name - St. Anne's Church). We're right next to that church. Walk to your left and cross the first or second bridge and then head up John Redmond Street. It's not labelled but there is a yellow triangular building called the Dominican Centre on the corner and a brown arrow sign pointing up to Shandon. We're right behind the Maldron Hotel when you're going up the hill.

From the Train Station:
We're a 15 minute walk from the train station in Cork. The first part is easy, just exit the train station and turn left. You'll be walking along MacCurtain Street for a while and you'll catch a few glimpses of the clock tower of Shandon Bells ahead of you. Keep walking straight, and after a set of lights it turns into Coburg Street. The larger Coburg Street curves to the right but there is a smaller street going straight, keep to the straight and narrow! You'll cross a main road and take a few steps up; at the top turn right and we're right beside the Maldron Hotel.
