Reliable, Flexible and Quicker than you think
Walking is a reliable transport option, without delays associated with road traffic and the corresponding stress. The average person can walk at 4-5km/hour. Generally, people tend to overestimate the time it will take to walk somewhere, and underestimate the time they will need to drive somewhere. For example you can walk from Stephens Green to Parnell Square in 20mins, or Patrick St to University College Cork in just over half an hour.
The National Journey Planner will give you walking routes and distances.
