The hotel itself is nice although to use the pool they charge an extra $20. The breakfast at Lafayette was great and the service was good. The dinner at Thyme at 76 was very good but the staff was incredibly confused and not schooled to serve at a quality restaurant.

Cork is a charming city and this hotel's location and historic nature added to our enjoyment of the city. The complimentary breakfast was appreciated and tasty. The staff were very considerate and helpful. While we didn't need it much, we appreciated that we had air conditioning. Most older properties don't have that amenity.

James Gunter is a treasure. After a small complication with our separate reservations, he came up with a perfect, elegant solution. The customer care at the Imperial is second to none. We are so pleased with this property thus far. Additionally, both the Sketch bar and Thyme restaurant are well worth spending time in. We’ve eaten at both and enjoyed both meals and cocktails!

This hotel is beautiful. Plenty of plugs for electronics, comfortable beds, Check-in was easy. Dropped bags off and then had about an 8 minute walk from the parking garage, which the hotel gives discounted prices of $12.00 to park for 24 hours. Great experience.
