    Is it feasible? Is is a nightmare? Is there decent public transport?
    Any advice gratefully received.;)

    classic post..

    No input sorry, a quick scout at shows that there are about 25 trains daily. Not bad. Nice spread in the morning too, first leaves at 5:45am. Silly o'clock.

    Think thats even better than me here in dublin to be honest!

    You'd probably get a better response in the Cork City board.

    The Cobh Cork train is an excellent service, plenty of rush hour trains.
    It's just over 25 mins Cobh/Cork, then depending where you are heading to in town, 10-30 mins. Say 10 mins for Parnell place, 30 for the far side of the UCC campus. You can get weekly/monthly tickets in the stations or from the conductor.

    The only downside is late trains, or the lack of them. The last trains out are at 20:00, 21:30 and 22:30. They will add later trains when the new Glounthaune Midleton section is up and running, but that's not going to be for a few years yet.
