Lovely guest house . Staff great and very helpful. Short walk into a busy town centre with lots of bars and night life. The Guest House does not have bar. But does have parking . The breakfast had a good choice caters for vegetarians as well. Would definitely stay again .

This bright new hotel is in the centre of Cork and close to the historic sights. Very comfortable and helpful and friendly service at reception. A quiet location and comfortable beds great for a good night's sleep. Secure free hotel parking makes it a great place to stay if you're driving.

I stayed for 3 nights in the hotel in March 2017. The small-medium hotel is cosy. Staff is very friendly and efficient, and the service has a human touch. The hotel is placed on the river bank and offers nice views. The rooms are clean and quite spacey. I particularly liked the breakfast. The continental breakfast has large assortment of...

We had 2 busy days in Cork and needed somewhere central, with a carpark and this seemed excellent value. Friendly staff, nice room and fine breakfast. No bar or restaurant but you don't have far to go for either and lots of choice. A good place to stay

The location is just as described, 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of the city unless you get drawn into the numerous pubs & restaurants along the route. A very quaint city but big enough to have all the main named shops, and small enough to be different than the...

We stayed for 4 weeks in thelodgel and we had a superb stay. The staff are the friendliest and most accomodating. The rooms were clean, warm and very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. Parking is on site and the bus stop is close by. Many thanks to all the staff that looked after us so well. We will certainly return again.

I booked a room for myself and another room for my parents, both were lovely spacious rooms with double beds. I had a lovely view of the river while my parents had a view of St. Finbarrs Cathedral. The staff were all very friendly and would bend over backwards to help in any way that they could. My parents had...
