The highlight for me was the excellent fresh breakfast. It really was a treat. We even got gluten free toast! Loved all the jams and tomato relish. Will definitely be...

Perfect place of walking to restaurants and shops in Cork but also for having a laundry within two blocks, The Laundry Basket. Their parking lot is gated at night and very secure. Looking for the address, know that LancasterQuay continues from the easy to find Washington street. You will drive over the hotel's own bridge over the quay into the...

Lancaster Lodge provides comfortable lodging in a central Cork location at a reasonable cost. The staff are friendly and helpful. The full breakfast was very good. Also, there is an excellent vegetarian restaurant just across the street as a dinner option.

With nothing booked we arrived in Cork in the late afternoon looking for accommodation. The Lancaster Lodge on Lancaster Quay was perfect for our needs, it even had a car park at no charge. Breakfast was served downstairs in the dining room and the food was great; a typical Irish Breakfast with everything or, if preferred, there was a selection...

The Lancaster Lodge was disappointing when compared to our other two "lodges" we had stayed at. This lodge was more like a chain hotel and had little of the homier feel we had grown used to. Checked in at a hotel like desk by a friendly staff person but nothing extra. Our room was noisy due to being on the...
