Tramore Valley Park is located at the old Kinsale Road Landfill Site on the eastern side of the South Link Road (N27).
If you are coming out of Cork City on the South Link Road, just turn left into the park.
If you are coming from the direction of the Kinsale Road Roundabout then please note there is NO RIGHT TURN OFF THE SOUTH LINK DUAL CARRIAGEWAY into the park. Instead at the Kinsale Road Roundabout take the exit signed ‘Turners Cross’ which will take you down passed Harvey Normans, then turn right at the next junction and drive passed the entrance to the Black Ash Park and Ride. At the junction with the South Link drive straight through the traffic lights (once they turn green!) and into the park. Note: If you miss the Turner Cross exit and find yourself on the N27 heading into the city centre Do not under any circumstances attempt to turn right at the traffic lights. Proceed through the lights towards the city and take the next exit marked Turners Cross Douglas. Turn right at the top of the slip road pass over the N27 and turn right immediately to get back on the N27 you will now be able to turn left into the Park.
