From Cork & Cork Airport we recommend catching a taxi or hiring a car.
Taxi: You can catch a taxi from the taxi ranks in the city centre or outside the airport. Currently you can expect to pay around €60
By Car: Coming out of the airport, turn left onto the main road, heading east towards the N25. Exercise extreme caution on the large roundabout (Kinsale Road Roundabout) at the bottom of the hill. Take the 4th exit, heading east on the N25. This will eventually take you through the Jack Lynch tunnel. At the roundabout after the tunnel, take the third exit, again heading east on the N25. Remaining on the N25 for about 10 miles until the next roundabout (outside Midleton). Here, take the third exit to the right (signposted Whitegate). After a quarter of a mile turn left, then immediately left again, following the signs to Cloyne and Ballymaloe House. Two miles beyond Cloyne, on the Ballycotton road (at a crossroad) is the front entrance to Ballymaloe House.
