Booked this break on a whim never been to Cork or Eire before. The hotel was superb, the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of foods to choose from. Room was clean and tidy and perfectly suited our needs. The hotel is an easy, very easy walk from the main shopping areas, the bus... More

My partner & I had an overnight stay in the Metropole Hotel recently and really enjoyed our time. The Female staff member at reception was very helpful with information on parking shopping and parking etc.

Enjoyed my stay, lovely hospitality very welcoming and obliging staff members! Enjoyed the pool / sauna and jacuzzi. Catch the deals and it will make your trip worthwhile. Buffet breakfast is average. Superb location.

We have stayed in the Metropole Hotel 3 or 4 times. We have always enjoyed our visits. Location is perfect if you are coming by train, bus or car. It's less than ten minute walk from both the bus & train stations. Friendly staff and the hotel has a quaility, yet relaxed feel about it. The rooms are a little... More

We stayed here for one night in April 2015, down for a football match from Dundalk. It was a very good hotel with a nice bar and well presented and good value bar food. The breakfast next day was exactly what you would expect, there was also plenty of space in the lobby to relax while waiting for your friends... More

We just stayed for one night. Got a great deal of €120 including breakfast & 4 course dinner for the two of us (on a Saturday night). All the staff were friendly, helpful & attentive. The food was good quality, fresh & varied. The leisure centre was well equipped & very clean. The view from the room wasn't exactly picturesque,... More

Excellent stay at the Metropole Cork. Lovely large room for the two of us. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly and actually stayed an extra night. The breakfast and restaurant meals were very good with a lot of variety. Will be recommending to friends.

My title says it all. It was a comfortable, clean hotel centrally situated and the food was very nice. Sorry that says it all in my opinion. We had a very nice time. We had a double room and my daughter had another one. She loved the pool and the meal we had there one of the nights was lovely.... More

I stayed here last November around Thanksgiving week and then again in April. For starters the staff did everything they could assure a room was ready for me after flying on a all night flight. No guarantees but I notified ahead of time. Second the whole staff and bar tenders took care of me too. It's about 13 to 15... More

The hotel was lovely all the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and a good choice of food on the menu for breakfast and evening meal. Only down side was swimming closed for children after 6pm. Good location for looking round Cork.
