comfort night in Cork, only little short

by komich (June, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: quiet, padded benches, dimmed lights overnight, free WiFi
Cons: early wakeup when first passengers arrived at 4 to 5 a.m.

I had a very good night in the airport of Cork in June 2013. I choose a comfortly padded bank in the food court in the first floor and wasnt disturbed there until the first new passengers arrived at 4 to 5 a.m. in the morning. It was also very quiet with hardly any announcement during the night. Even some lights went out after midnight. Also nobody woke me me when the food court opened I just got of my sleeping bag when already a lot of people were sitting and eating. The washing facilities nearby were very clean and so I even could brush my teeth and refill my water bottle. And for the best, free WiFi was provided and so I could browse the internet and check my Mails.

Good airport

by bruna321 (July, 2012)

Where: Landside
Pros: Quiet, helpful staff, good shuttle service, free wi-fi
Cons: No 24h stores, too bright, unconfortable chairs

Good airport to sleep, security was really helpful and nice. There was only 4 other people sleeping there, so it was definitely not a problem to find a good place to sleep. Nothing stays open late night and they don't have even a selling machine, so don't forget to bring your bottle if you want to sleep there. There is a Bus ireann service outside the terminal that goes to Dublin City Centre and other locations (they will drop you at the Cork central station) and it costs a reasonable price (11 for student, one way).

Sleeping at cork airport wasnt bad at all

by Basutigeruk (April, 2011)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside
Pros: perfect
Cons: perfect

Airport security will let you sleep for overnight but they will be asking if you about your next destination/ time of flight. I almost had no problems whatsover... free wifi on iphone makes the night easier for me. You cant sleep till 2PM in the night as its little bit of noisy but later on its quite enough. 5.30 am ppl are coming to catch there flights so u can enjoy 5 hours sleep only. Subway is open 24 hours with food/drinks. Toilets are clean and its next to subway. Information centre close at 12:00 pm in the night and open at 6.00 am. Bus service between dub-cork are horrible. so make sure u find out the timings well in advance.

Deserted at night

by namche (February, 2007)

Reason for Stay: No Money
Where: Landside and Airside

I spent two nights at Cork Airport, both in winter. One way, we arrived in the evening and had to wait until 6 am for the car rental (we couldn't afford hotel). At night the terminal is open, but after 1 AM totally deserted, all shops closed. The building is "backpacker-proof" and doesn't have any good secret places to rest. Except the security we were the only people inside. We chose the seats near the over-size baggage check-in (seemed most peaceful), and tried to sleep on the floor on the sleeping pads, but security guys had a problem with that, so finally we had to use the trolleys to put legs on them. The night was quite peaceful because of relative silence, broken only by few announcements (in the deserted hall they made me jump). The airport is very clean. On the way back we had a flight at 3 AM, and found the cushioned seats behi continued >>

not overnight, but it felt like it...

by jabberwocky (August, 2006)

Reason for Stay: Weather/airline delay
Where: Airside

We were trapped in the airport for 10 hours due to a security problem (terrorism bust in England shut down most UK and Ireland flights for the day) and it was unbelievably boring (and extremely crowded, but we can't blame them for that). Once you're through security, there's nothing but one big duty free shop that reeks of perfume. The only food or drink is duty free or from vending machines (so, nasty) and security didn't want to let us back out into the main lobby to get to food/bars/shops (thankfully, they relented after it became obvious that we were going to be there for a while). They didn't have TVs and weren't making announcements about why we were trapped there, so we had to get all of our news from (very expensive) calls to people on the outside. The one plus side was that at least the annoying airport announcements were in char continued >>
