“Fantastic Hidden Gem with Excellent Restaurent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We have just returned from a Dublin escape to Cork and visited Isaacs Hotel for the first time. What a lovely surprise! Stunning waterfall feature made us feel we had stepped out of reality into a Jurassic Park film set! Such a memorable relaxing setting for one of the best Cappuchinos we've ever had. The Dining experience was wonderful too - three absolutely delicious well presented courses in a friendly, rustic ambient candlelit surrounding. We went for a short walk into the centre afterwards to burn off some of those calories! Spacious bedrooms with a comfortable bed. We'd recommend this hotel to anyone! There's even self catering for those independant guests.

My wife and I stayed here last week and were given a room above the street . The noise was so bad I didn't sleep a wink all night. Traffic and passing revellers were heard all night. There was no airconditioning so it was quiet clammy. This made it more difficult to sleep

Room Tip: Get a room off street if possible

Right in the heart of Cork, well kept and clean
The restaurant is well laid out, staff are attentive, but the food, it is one of the best kept secrets in Cork. Had dinner and breakfast here and they are the best I have had anywhere. I am shocked that it hasn't got a Michelin star. Would recommend to anyone
Lounge is large and informal and good for the Craic.
Waterfall feature is very good but its the staff that make the place

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the street, quiet and comfortable

Hotel Isaacs is located on the north side of the city, very close to the city centre, within walking distance of all the main attractions in Cork city. It has a lovely feature of a waterfall/cascade which is most attractive. The bedrooms are spacious and clean. The hotel could do with some decoration but there is a charm about the place which is very appealing. I have stayed there twice in the last six months and would recommend it.

We stayed 2 nights in Cork and we booked this hotel. Let me tell you that Cork has to be the best city we visited in Ireland. This hotel had an historical feel to it and we loved it. Staff was great !

The hotel was only 5 minutes walk to the city center (shopping street) and 10 mins to the market. Our room was facing the street, it was a bit noisy, but it was alright !

Breakfast was average though.

Very cute hotel, nice and small, kind of hidden away and walking distance from town. Liked the water feature, enjoyed the sunshine drinking coffee and sitting next to the small waterfall in the courtyard

What more can I say? From the moment we checked in until we left.. The whole stay was perfect, I would say that the only thing that let's you guys down is cosmetic; other than that keep on doing what your doing and realise that you can't please everyone!!!
