“City break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Stayed last weekend, location. Perfect. Room. Good. Food. Good. Hotel is located just a 5minute walk from city centre, plenty of shopping available also all the attractions of cork. Small outside area with relaxing waterfall, pleasant area for sitting, even in the rain. Had dinner in Greens next door, this also very good. Enjoyed our stay very much. Will go back.

We stayed for 3 nights in room 101, a large room with en-suite shower room, TV, iron and hair-dryer and safe all included. Large glass wall/window in room to corridor - unusual and mainly not seen as curtains had to be drawn for privacy, but not a huge problem. Room can be coldish in the early afternoon, and like a sauna overnight. Took awhile to work out the right setting.
Room 101 is right next to the lift and over the receptionist area, so can be noisy - take earplugs. Breakfast is not included, can get this at Greenes next to the hotel but I would suggest that breakfast at Gallaghers at the end of MacCurtain street is much better value.
Staff are excellent, helpful and hotel is clean and well appointed - would stay here again - but would ask for a different room. Great location for a weekend in Cork, and very good value if you book on-line.

We stayed in the apartments next to the hotel. They are one of the few apartments available on various days so you're not tied into a week Saturday to Saturday. They were reasonably priced, with daily cleaning services, in the heart of the city. The only downside was there was no lift and we had to carry our double buggy up to the second floor. We had a fabulous time and will be staying there again on our next visit to Cork.

We landed in Cork on a Sunday night for a work gig on Monday, and decided we had to treat ourselves. Isaacs didn't let us down, two ribeyes with trimmings filled the hole. The grilled portobello mushrooms were better than the steak. Maurice had his medium rare, but I went with medium which I reckon was better for the cut. Place was quiet, but, hey, its Cork on a Sunday

Stayed here with 3 friends for a night out in Cork city. We could not fault the hotel for price, location, staff, food and good service. We Had two twin rooms and one was located facing the street but it didn't interfere with us at all. The other room was fairly newly decorated with a lovely new bathroom. Our dinner in Greenes restaurant was lovely and they also offer 10% off full bill for guests staying in the hotel. Parking was very nearby but be aware that you must take an immediate turn right for the church after you turn off from Maccurtain street!!! It's a one way street and a long way back around if you miss the turn off!!! Looking forward to staying again soon..

Booked hotel after checking reviews, was not disappointed. Arrived at hotel 11am check in was not till 2pm, was expecting to leave luggage and go back later however helpful girl on reception said she thought our room was ready, after a quick phone call to check she said yes room was ready & gave us key. Room like the rest of hotel was excellent, clean comfortable and nicely furnished.Hotel was in a great location, staff were friendly and helpful, great experience from start to finish.

Spent a night in Cork, and the Isaacs proved to be a good choice. Only minutes walk away from the centre. Car park available, and good, free internet connection (wifi). The hotel was a former tobacco warehouse (very near the quayside) and is set in a very interesting spot next to a waterfall. Friendly staff, and excellent breakfast.
