Anyway, only 10 minutes walk from the Cork city centre. Rooms were spacious, well-equipped, and well-maintained. Lift if required, but stairs were quicker. Excellent choice for breakfast from continental (including selection of cold meats, cheeses, fruits, and juices) to the cholesterol-packed full Irish breakfast of salmon, kippers, and smoked haddock. The hotel has just opened a new fitness suite which is complemented by a sauna, Jacuzzi, and steam room.
