Terminal Information - Departing
Cork Airport is fairly small, and it's easy to find the check in desks once you're there. There is a restaurant and cafe before security, but if you'd like more variety wait until you're on the airside. Here, there's a Lir Cafe where you can sip on Segafredo drinks, a Food Market, paying foodie homage to Cork's English markets in the centre, and a Sports Bar for getting in a few pints of Guinness before the flight too.
Free Wifi is available throughout all of Cork Airport, as well as power points for charging up electronics. There are also internet kiosks if you don't happen to have a device with you – you can pay for these with coins or cash.
The Loop Shopping Concourse is also part of Cork Airport – here, you can pick up those final bits and pieces as well as bagging some Duty Free. Use Click and Collect if you know you'll be in a hurry!
Terminal Information – Arriving
The terminal you arrive into depends on which airport you're flying to. New York JFK (JFK) and Newark Liberty International (EWK) are the two main international airports in New York.
John F Kennedy is 20km to the east of Lower Manhattan, and it's one of the busiest airports in the world – there are 8 terminals here. That said, there are multiple walkways and escalators that make it easier to navigate. The queues for passport control and baggage can get hectic after several international flights land.
Alternatively, Newark Liberty is on the boundary of New Jersey and New York. There are 3 main terminals here, and chances are you will be flying into Terminal 3. Similarly to JFK, it can get busy during peak times, especially around passport control. Both airports have a cafe, free Wifi and an information desk on arrival.
Getting to New York
There are bus and Subway options to NYC from both airports. This is the cheapest way to get to New York, but it can take up to 2 hours. You'll also need to take several connections from either airport.
The AirTrain and NJ Transit is the easiest and fastest way to get to New York from Newark and JFK. The AirTrain is free to ride around the airport, but if you are riding into the city you will need to purchase a MetroCard. There's a $5 fee to exit the AirTrain onto public transport, then fees vary from station to station.
Taxi is one of the most expensive ways to get to New York, but it guarantees privacy. It can cost up to $80 from Newark Airport, and $60 from JFK – this is including tolls and tips.
Cork's airport is fairly small, but it services the city and the surrounding area. It can get busy during the summer holidays – it's nothing compared to the bustle of NYC though.
It's recommended that you arrive 3 hours prior to your flight, as you're flying to North America. Make sure you exchange currency in Cork or New York, as US Dollars are the only currency accepted here.
