Great hotel in a wonderful location walking distance into the centre of Cork. Brilliant staff who dealt with everything so professionally and kindly. Breakfast was excellent if a little pricey. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

One of Irelands best if not its best! 10/10
Booked this hotel for the last 2days/nights of my 10 day trip around Ireland and my only regret is that I didn’t stay in this hotel for the ENTIRE trip. This was one of the nicest, cleanest, most welcoming but also most secure hotels i have ever been to. The staff was amazing, the room was luxurious but also cozy, and the Bar and Restaurant were incredible! 10/10 rating and can’t wait to return to Cork and book this hotel again.
