Hayfield is somewhat unique. They are small enough to be personable with their service, but I could sense a strong corporate backing. The staff at the hotel is a pleasure. The food is excellent and the setting overlooking Cork College beautiful. I think it might be a little high on it's rates... but then again, it is very unique.
But the real purpose of this review is to tell you how to find it if you're driving: (1) take your best shot at finding it through the maps on the website or some other internet tool. (I didn't try a gps because I was too busy looking for pedestrians, walls and cars.) There are no street signs, but their are signs to landmarks. The hotel is one of them. Good luck with this. Once I knew I was in the general vicinity, I finally gave in and asked a taxi driver. There are many of them and they are mostly waiting around anyway. He was very friendly, told me right at the light, two blocks, take a right, then repeated it. One minute later, we drove through the gate. It's a great place once you find it.
