Excellent place to stay close to lots of places to eat. Walking distance to downtown area for more dining options and good shopping. Staff very helpful & friendly particularly at check in. Concierge very helpful and gave us some good recommendations of what to do on our day trip to the Kinsale area. In warm weather make sure to ask for fan as rooms get stuffy. Beds our comfy and quiet. Would stay here again if in Cork

The hotel was in a good location, walking distance to shopping and had a restaurant with gluten free options. They also provided me with a fridge when I requested one. On the flip side the room felt run down, water stains on the ceiling and the toilet was ancient and wouldn’t flush without some fiddling. We also had noisy neighbors. Maybe we just had a cheaper room but I probably wouldn’t stay again.

The rooms don’t have air conditioning and the windows open only a crack. It’s suffocating in the summer and our room turned into a sauna within hours. It trapped moisture from the shower and was unbearable. Even the minimal circulation from the windows was useless when construction started up at 7:00am and jackhammers began rattling the walls, continuing into the evening. It was the most miserable hotel stay we’ve ever had. Book anywhere else- this place is a nightmare.

The property is wonderfully located by the River bank. It is a great location, very quiet. If you're a lone traveller, your room will be compact (a double bed in a smaller sized room). The room I had was a little tired and in need of a slight refresh. Other than that, the cleanliness was spot on, the staff went over and above for me and made me feel extremely welcome, so much so that I would definitely use this Hotel again if travelling to Cork. The Irish breakfast is absolutely amazing and well worth trying - excellent quality of food. A truly fantastic experience and a lovely historic Hotel with a warm Irish heart and soul.
