There are no rail services from Shannon. The options for getting from Shannon to Cork are:

Bus from Shannon to Cork via Limerick- see www.buseireann.ie and check out Expressway Route 51.

Bus from Shannon to Limerick and then rail from Limerick to Cork with a change of train at Limerick Junction. Details of rail times etc are on www.irishrail.ie.

I suspect the bus option is more straightforward and cost effective.

I would recommend the bus option. It is much more convenient and you will have no change in Limerick.

The service is hourly and fairly hassle free.
