We planned a week and a half trip all over Ireland in August 2012 and our first stop was in Cork. We arrived and did not find it right away, but once we did, we were greeted with a friendly smile. I'm not sure why, but we were offered an upgrade to our room which included a king size bed! We were exhausted from our flight from the States and drive from Dublin so we decided the first thing we wanted to do was take a short nap. We were told that before heading into city center, we could stop by the main building for some tea, scones, and biscuits. The room was small, as it is in most places in Europe, but it was cozy. And the bed was extremely comfortable. We love to travel and even though we don't spend too much time in the rooms, the moments that we do, are very important.
We did not stay in the main building but instead had to walk a short distance to where our room was. Not entirely convenient, but it was fine. It just meant not a lot of foot traffic coming though our building :) Once we awoke, we headed back to the main building, we were treated with scones and tea which were delicious! We headed out to the city center which was about a 15-20 minute walk. We did not get a chance to try the breakfast which we've heard was amazing. We overslept the next morning and we were only there for one night. We wish we could have stayed longer!
