Where is GAMSAT held in Cork? | Cork test centre location

The Cork Gamsat is usually held in the Clayton Hotel Cork City, Lapp’s Quay, Cork T12 RD6E


However although ACER do tend to re-use the same venues for the test, the actual locations are not confirmed until you receive your official admissions ticket about two weeks before the test.

So to be on the safe side you should probably hold off until you get the official notification of the address before you make hotel reservations or other travel arrangements.

By public transport the hotel is only a 5 minute walk from Kent Street Train Station. Leave the train station exiting  left from the station and follow the footpath towards the River Lee. Once you are alongside the River you can see the Clayton Hotel ahead of you.

By bus the hotel is only a 1 minute walk from Cork Parnell Place Bus Station. Exit right out of the station and you can see the hotel ahead of you.

If coming by car the hotel has a car park in the basement called the Lapps Quay Public Car Park (entrance via 27 Oliver Plunkett Street Lower) which costs €2.20 an hour or €31 per day. Residents of the hotel get a special rate of €12 per day.


Since this test centre is located inside a hotel, if you need a place to stay while you take the test why not stay right here for maximum convenience.
