My wife, son, and I were spending a week in Ireland to celebrate his graduation from college. While most of our time was in Dublin, we took the train from Dublin to Cork on May 7 for a two night stay. We did not have a car, so I wanted to stay in the city center and the Clayton Hotel Cork City seemed to fit the bill.
The hotel is modern, located on the river and within walking distance to everything in the city center. The hotel is in excellent condition, with large, clean, spacious rooms. The staff was very helpful and the full Irish breakfast was excellent.
We did the "hop on, hop-off" bus tour which meets a block away in front of the City Hall. We toured the old jail, University College Cork, and the English Market. We enjoyed Counihans Bar on Pembroke Street and the Mutton Lane Pub near the English Market. Ristorante Rossini on Princess Street was excellent as was Market Lane Restaurant. On our last night we had a great dinner at the Pembroke Restaurant located in the Imperial Hotel.
The Clayton Hotel serves the business traveler, but did a great job of welcoming us as tourists. We definitely would stay there again when visiting Cork.More
