We went there for one night. There is a nice ambiance with friendly staff. Rooms are a bit small. Breakfast is pretty nice. Sport room and pool is nice as well. A place to recommend if you look for a nice hotel in city center for a fair budget

Great hotel in the heart of Cork city. Loved the old world ambience. Friendly and professional staff. Got to mention Tereza! If your interest is the theatre, Everman Theatre is almost next door, Cork Arts Theatre a short walk and the Opera House across the bridge. You won't be disappointed.

Location is great. Hotel although a little old world is always friendly. Food in the bar is very good value and enjoyable. We go to Cork once a year to catch a show. The Everyman Theatre is our favourite and well worth a visit.
