Depart Dublin following signs for M8 in the direction of Limerick/Cork. After Portlaoise follow signs for the M8 for Cork.
As you approach Cork City you will come across a major roundabout by the Jack Lynch Tunnel. Take the second exit and go through the Tunnel. After you come out of the tunnel keep straight and you will pass over the towns of Rochestown and Douglas, and take the flyover at the Kinsale Road Roundabout.
You will then approach another roundabout called the Sarsfield Road Roundabout (with traffic lights). Take the third exit, following signs for Wilton. You will see the Tesco and Wilton Shopping Centre on your left. After passing, you will come to another roundabout. At this roundabout take the second exit, headed for the City Centre. Continue through one set of Pedestrian traffic lights, and at the next major junction (with Tesco Express in front of you on your right) take a right turn.
You will come to a mini roundabout, take the first exit onto College Road. Continue on this road passing the Bons Secours Hospital and go straight through the next junction. Continue on past UCC and take a right turn up Perrott Avenue, just before the traffic lights. There is a signpost for Hayfield Manor here. We are located at the top of Perrott Avenue.
