The charm and buzz of Cork, Ireland’s second city, are reflected in the conviviality and warmth of the River Lee. Set on a picturesque bend in the river a short walk from the city centre, the hotel offers easy access to the city’s cultural riches and vibrant nightlife, while its location is also ideal for exploring Ireland’s ruggedly beautiful southern coastline.

With its abundance of local artisan produce, Cork has established a thriving foodie reputation in recent years. The River Lee draws on this, with their popular restaurant serving up a refined menu in an elegant setting. Meanwhile, the vibrant riverside bar and terrace are staples of Cork’s social scene and, with commanding views of the river and a relaxed ambience, the perfect spot for weekend brunch, late night cocktails or an indulgent afternoon tea.

Health conscious guests can enjoy the in-house NRG health and fitness club, with its 20m swimming pool. Business visitors will appreciate The Hub, a dynamic meeting and event space whose distinctive rooms encourage creative thinking.

Cool, soothing, understated décor typifies the 182 guest rooms, many with stunning views of the city. The 50 deluxe rooms provide access to the executive lounge and its all-day refreshments
