West Cork is bus-tling!

Wednesday, 12th July, 2017 5:43pm

A new bus service is linking Kinsale and Clonakilty for the first time.

Local Link has created a route running seven days a week, five times a day, starting on Monday 17 July.

David O’Brien, CEO of Local Link Cork, said at the route launch that the service was initially proposed by local tourism interests in the area. A series of meetings followed, resulting in the proposal going forth to the National Transport Authority (NTA.)

The NTA agreed to support the service, linking both the start and finish points of the Wild Atlantic Way.

The service will allow tourism interests along the route to partner with one another, providing a more cohesive and attractive offering to visiting tourists.

Local Link will have a daily morning and evening service from Clonakilty to the West Cork Technology Park, a morning and afternoon service from Clonakilty to Inchydoney Beach and a daily service from Kinsale to Charles Fort. 

Additionally, a Kinsale Town Shuttle aimed primarily at older residents will operate three times throughout the day. 

All services are open to locals and tourists alike, with the intention that the service will support community initiatives, education and employment along the route.

Local Link Cork is one of 17 national offices that operate the Rural Transport Programme under the NTA.
