I stayed here with a work colleague for one night. Our decision to stay here was based entirely on Tripsdvisor reviews. We spend an average of 4 nights per month in hotels in the Cork area. We thought the Muskerry Arms would offer something a bit different... And it did We arrived mid-afternoon. Our rooms were ready and there was... More

My Host/Staff were exceptionally helpful, very friendly and had a good local knowledge of the area. Both... More

Our stay at the Muskerry Arms was great, from our speedy checkin at the pub downstairs to the free parking and free wifi. We ate dinner in the pub, which is quite lively at night with live music. The walls are thin so it's a bit noisy as most of the reviews say, but it's just been repainted and is... More

Stayed here for 3 nights , rooms are nice , food is super , and nice bar atmosphere and helpful staff. The noise levels are high and probably not suited to young kids trying to get sleep, but as a location for business its close to main roads and private parking also .
