Our iconic hotel first opened its doors to guests in 1897.
The Metropole Hotel Cork is celebrating 124 years of excellent hospitality and warm service. Our hotel, which is located in the heart of the Victorian Quarter in Cork’s City Centre, celebrated this important milestone on June 21st.
Our iconic hotel, which is part of the fabric of Cork City, has played host to many famous faces since it first opened in 1897, including Walt Disney, Ella Fitzgerald and Charlie Chaplin. Young guests at The Metropole Hotel this week celebrated by dressing as the famous faces.
General Manager of The Metropole Hotel, Roger Russell says: “The past year has been incredibly challenging for those working in the hotel industry so it’s great to be able to celebrate something so unique. 124 years in business is an incredible achievement. I’m proud to work with an amazing team at The Metropole Hotel and have made so many great friends during my time here. The guests are truly what make the hotel so special and we are delighted to be welcoming back many of them this summer.”
The Metropole Hotel is also renowned for its ability to create unique wedding and many of the brides and grooms who have passed through its doors over the years have praised our hotel for making their big day special.
