I will be staying in Cork on business for around 6 weeks in April/May and was hoping to get some local help before I come as there don't seem to be so many great Cork guide books around.
I will be staying at one of the townhouses at Rochestown Park hotel - which leads to my first question - I've read lots of details about the hotel itself but nothing about the townhouses - does anybody know what they are like/stayed there before? Are they one or two bedroomed? I haven't been able to locate any of this information on their website.
Secondly - local amenities. I have heard that there is a large shopping centre with Dunnes Stores etc just around the corner in Cork - can anyone tell me the actual address so that I could do a route planner from the hotel to the shopping centre (will have a company car for some of the time).
Finally - for those days when I don't have access to the car, how is public transport in Cork? It doesn't seem to be that great from what i have seen, but then coming from Switzerland i am a little spoilt in this respect. Is it possible/easy to get in to the centre of Cork and Douglas by bus from Rochestown Park?
All help is much appreciated.
