we spent 2 nights at the radisson blu. It is a nice clean hotel with courteous staff. The surrounding area of the hotel is very industrial - beside Harvey Norman and a plant hire shop but location wise for touring around cork it is great. We went to Fota island one day which is 10 mins down the road and spent the 2nd day sight seeing around the ring of cork.
The facilities in the hotel are good but not quite up to 4 star quality in my opinion. The swimming pool is nice but a bit on the small side when there are a few people in it and with children playing you can't get a proper swim.
The first night we had to ring down to reception as there waS a lot of noise on our floor. We do not usually complain but we let the noise continue for some time hoping they would quite down. Reception sorted the problem out within a few minutes.
The hotel is also quite warm particularly in the corridor areas and the air conditioning does not seem to be very effective. We had our windows open the whole time we were there.
Breakfast was very nice with a good assortment of food. Overall a nice hotel and good location for sight seeing.
