From outside Ireland, flying is probably easiest. There are direct flights to Cork from several European cities (including London, Edinburgh, Rome, Paris), but visitors from the U.S. will need to change. The most common routes are via Dublin and London. It’s possible to fly direct to Shannon and then catch a train or bus to Cork. If you’re planning to travel around Ireland, you’ll probably want to hire a car and it might be more convenient to do that than to use public transport (although it pains me to say it).
There’s a bus between Dublin Airport and Dublin Heuston (for trains to Cork).
