This Hotel and city have been our favorite of Ireland! Highly recommend!!! The staff and rooms were lovely and accommodating- we could not have asked for a better experience...


We use the met when we are in cork. The location is great backing onto the river Lee . The rooms are updated and very nice. The staff are helpful. The restaurant has lovely views over the river and city.
