Hotel is pretty old and could use some updating. Room was big but there was no climate control and opening the windows at night caused a lot of noise from a wedding party. If you have trouble walking, note that the hotel is off the beaten path, up a big hill.

We only stayed here for one night but it was an awesome experience. It is an old hotel with stunning views of Cork and although old was immaculately clean. The staff were very helpful and we would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to anyone visiting Cork. Very enjoyable stay. John & Gail Laney
