The hotel is beautiful. The staff are attentive, friendly and do their best to anticipate your needs. As well the breakfast is quite good. The amenities of the hotel are great, although I was not able to fully utilize them. I would have no reservations staying here again.

We came over to celebrate a 50th birthday with family from England and Ireland. It is the perfect location in Cork city for shopping and finding bars with traditional music for everyone. The bar and breakfast staff are very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely use again.

I had booked a single and it was small, the bed was pushed up against one side. there was little space to put your toiletries in the bathroom. They do have larger rooms as I asked Rosa at reception. Have a look at Jury’s Hotel too. Hotel prices in Ireland are cheaper on a Sunday night so this may influence the planning of your stay.

There are lots of bars in Cork city that are well worth visiting. We only had a drink from the bar with our evening meal. Room was a good size, compatible to other similar hotels.
