There are services at Junction 8 - Cashel - I have never used them so I cant comment. Other than that you will have to go off the motorway.

Another vote for exit 14 off the M7, handy spot to stretch the legs. Haven't used any offerings off the M8 so can't comment on those I'm afraid.

Dublin to Cork City on the M8 ( Toll road )

Exit 14 and take the R 639 Dublin road towards

Fermoy town for about one mile

and on your left-hand-side you'll see a garage

called Amber Fuel services its brand new

with a restaurant

Also you'll be able to avoid the toll close by

and drive into Fermoy town and follow signs for the N8

and then back onto the M8.

good luck.

The Cashel stop is quite dear for fuel and with the McDonalds gets very busy.

Hey, you're on holiday? Take the time to drive into Cashel itself and find a decent pub or cafe.

Thank you for all your replies. Junction 14, Mayfield off the M7, was super and definitely recommendable for a brilliant choice of meals. Excellent shop too. The toilets were so clean!
