We chose this hotel from an Ireland hotel book we had with us. It appeared to be a nice property in the book, however when we arrived we found it to be a very old property. The parking lot is not paved or in some areas it has broken concrete. The lobby had broken furniture. Obviously the owners have never refurbished this hotel.
Our rooms were tolerable. At least they were clean.
It has a huge bar, which appeared to be very nice, but on the night we were there, the bar was packed due to a soccer game on TV.
The location is outside the busy city centre. It is on the road to Blarney, which was convenient as we went there for both breakfast and dinner. The Lemon Tree and Mackeys are both excellent restaurants in Blarney. I would recommend them highly and a nice quiet place to dine as Cork is very busy and a difficult city to drive in.
