"Great access to motorway"
A very good standard throughout the facility. Bedroom was spacious and modern. Some interesting decorating choices. Had drinks and dinner in the bar. Both good. Service was very efficient. Well outside of the city centre but great access to the motorway.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed the spa prior to breakfast but would have appreciated if breakfast was open until 11am during weekends. The only downside really was that the bathroom was not properly cleaned with some hair and dust from earlier guests behind the door. The breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we really enjoyed our stay in this stylish hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Radisson Blu is a lovely hotel about ten or fifteen mins drive from Cork city centre. We knew this when we were booking it so it wasn't an issue. The train station into the city is about a 10 min walk from the hotel (the longest part of the walk is from the main reception to the top of the avenue!). It also has a free car park if you wanted to leave […] a car there over night which we did. It costs €2.40 each way on the train but we found that the train station (Cork, Kent) is a good bit from the centre of town so ended up hopping in a taxi anyway so it cost us about €15 with the train & taxi and it would have been €18 or €20 direct from the hotel into the city! There may have been shuttle buses into the centre from the train station but it was a bank holiday Sun when we were there and we didn't see any. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful, especially on Reception and our room was spotless and very comfortable with a massive bed. Our only complaint was the heat in the room, but most hotel rooms tend to be very warm so we just opened the windows. The rooms had all the normal mod cons with a little fridge, tea/coffee facilities, a decent TV, safe, etc. We didn't eat in the hotel so I can't comment on the food. The pool area was lovely with fabulous massage seats and jets, bubble seats and powerful waterfalls, sauna and steam room. The changing rooms had lockers, large private showers and hairdryers which was great. I'd highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, shame about the location."
We stayed overnight and booked in on a room only offer. The room was fine, it was comfortable and had everything we needed, but the view of the car park wasn't ideal! Given the location (in a retail park off the motorway) it was about the best we could expect! The pool was the best feature of this hotel - it had Jacuzzi jets in the form of waterfalls, […] underwater seats and beds all around the pool. The pool was very family-friendly as kids could use these features and were not confined to a small pool in the corner. And the pool water was exceptionally warm. Bonus! The choice of food was a bit of a let down - either suffer the noise and mayhem of the bar with a basic menu or an over-priced menu in the restaurant. We opted to head into Cork city (which is a 10min drive away). The front of house staff were very friendly and the hotel was typical Radisson standard - does what it says on the tin.

Firstly, although the hotel says it is inCork, it's not. It's 8km outside, a €20 cab ride minimum and on a business park. Staff were pleasant enough, room was ok but nothing special but it is it's location which lets it down. There is nothing redeeming about the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly staff from check-in to check-out, bar food good, spa and pool very relaxing. Room clean and well laid out. A very nice stay. Sign on the main road and entrance could be bigger to help locate the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Efficient, friendly staff. Quality of the food in the restaurant was excellent. Location fine, so long as you had a car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where is the duvet?"
The hotel was clean and convent. The staff was friendly and helpful. The duvet on the bed just barely reach the edge so when you got in you had to move to the middle of the bed. Unfortunately, the bed consisted of two bed pushed together and that made sleeping uncomfortable. I also prefer to sleep on the edge of the bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was lovely, they tried to put me in a twin room with single beds when a delux king room was booked though and the elevator was broken.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel for whatever kind of weekend break."
Brilliant hotel. Stayed here due to an exhibition being held here. Couldn't fault anything. Will definatley be back. Would advise to get car hire so you can out and about as everywhere is so close. Also the Airport is less than 15mins away.Genuine Expedia guest review

I stayed here on a business trip. The hotel room was very clean well equipped, with free wifi.

"Great hotel, clean spacious rooms"
Stayed with hubby and young daughter, requested level access shower, got everything we asked for and great friendly staff in all areas, bar, front desk etc. Food in hotel bar a little pricy but tasty. A little away from the city so a car definitely needed.. but a great base for local site seeing, Cobh,fota island etc. Will def stay again. Pool very […] good!

"Not a bad stay but...."
Nice hotel but this really is one that is a long way from any facilities. It is poorly signposted in the middle of an industrial estate. Unless you have a car then this hotel should not be considered, unless of course you are willing to pay taxi-fares.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
starting with the staff most welcoming and courtous helpful in all aspectsof our stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for business in and around Cork"
No radio and tv not working properly. I stayed here before and was told, "They are looking into the radio" Not sure how long this will take!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel - good value for money"
Nice Hotel and would go back. Spa is basic but adequate - bring a swimming cap cause they insist on it which I found odd. Steam room is a little small. Other con is the a la carte menu prices - pretty steep. They seem to charge as if they have a michelin star - they don't, so this seems a little over the top. The hotel is nicely finished though and […] the staff are friendly. The rooms are comfortable and it does everything it says on the tin. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely stay, thank you for upgrade and complimentary deserts ! We would have loved it if the pool was open later. Thanks again. Rebecca & JimGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family of 5 with older kids"
Hotel was great for the older boys aged 15 and 16. The leisure centre and gym was excellent. It would have been lovely to have had a games room or playroom for the younger 9 year old. However the receptionist supplied us with Monopoly which kept her happy for a while. The outside playground was minimal. Hotel situated in a commercial/industrial estate […] which disappointed. Good location for Fota but you would need a car if staying here. Breakfast was great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived our double room was in fact a twin room, we asked reception to move us but she said she would get the bed changed, this took them over 3 hours to do. Not enough tea/coffee or shampoo in rooms for 2 peopleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Images of the hotel did not disclose the fact the hotel is situated on the edge of a business park. Despite web images of rooms with a double and single bed, we were given a double room with a roll away bed. It justn't wasn't what we had been led to expect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is a nice hotel and family friendly , the one thing that let it down was our room was quiet warm and at night we had to leave the widows open, which meant you had constant road noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent breakfast selection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, perfect base for Fota Wildlife!"
We really enjoyed our stay here. We arrived to be greeted by friendly reception staff, and when we got to our room we realised we'd been upgraded to business class which was a nice surprise. The room itself was bright, with two glass walls, tea and coffee making facilities, and a nice spacious en suite. The train station is about a 5 minute walk away, […] with trains directly into Cork City, Fota Wildlife (which was the focus of our trip) and Cobh. It's a bit farther out of town than most hotels, but that's not an issue when transport is so close to hand. There was a good amount of choice for breakfast, and the pool area was lovely and relaxing. We meant to try the gym and spa but didn't get a chance due to our own time constraints. We both loved staying here, and I've been recommending it to friends since we got back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent service with an Irish smile"
Rooms and leisure facilities are excellent. Location for those without a car not ideal. Although Little Island Railway Station is 10-15 minutes from the hotel I recommend to get time tables in advance for trains into Cork and Cobh so you don't find yourself waiting too long on a lonely platform.The staff was excellent, service with a smile by all. It […] was for instance no problem at all to get a cappuchino with breakfast instead of ordinary tea and coffee. Also equiped with nice bar and dining area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"New and friendly"
Don't be put off by the location on a retail park its a short easy drive into cork. The hotel is one of the best radissons blus I have stayed in. Rooms are clean bright and airy. If you are into fitness the faciilities are top notch. Breakfast is good...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel pool was the best I've even been in, the temp. was just so warm and the relaxing areas were unbeatable. Really loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unfortunately the first room we got had not been cleaned but we were given a new room very quickly. Food in the bar was lovely and service was very good and prices v reasonable. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Had a great time using the hydrotherapy treatments in the pool. The only downside was it was we were hoping to head out for a few hours […] in the evening but everywhere was a bit far in a taxi. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"one night stay that made me grumpy"
I stayed in the Radisson Blu Hotel in cork last weekend with my girlfriend for one night. when we arrived the girl at the reception did say hello but did not say much more. i gave her my name to check in and she just gave me my key and told me my room number then walked away from the desk. we were unsure where our room was and where the lift to the […] next floor was so i had to ask another staff member. when making the booking i asked for a double room but when we went into our room it was a twin bed but we were not to bothered by this and just pushed the beds together. Later that day i went back to the reception to ask about where to book a spa treatment for my girlfriend and it was the same girl that was on the reception when we first checked in and this time she was still unhelpful and just told me she could not do this and i need to go to the next reception but i had to ask where this is as she did not explain this. After a long drive we were looking forward to a nice sleep but that was even hard to get in this hotel. There was a door between our room and the next room which was not very sound proof and at 2am when the people in the room beside us were not in their alarmclock went off for an hour so i contacted the reception but half an hour later the people came back to their room and turned it off. To top off this bad sleep room service then came into our room at half nine as they had thought we had checked out. Will not stay in any radisson again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff were very nice.. On arrival we were upgraded to a business class room. The room was very clean and spacious. A cot was provided for our baby but this was very old and grubby looking. Food in the bar was lovely but Portions were quite small. The location of hotel suited us as we had a car and it was only a short drive to cobh and to fota […] island. However the actual setting of hotel wasn't the most appealing as it was in an industrial estate. Overall I would happily recommend the hotel to anyone who is driving and looking to visit the sights by day. But if you were looking for nearby night life it probably wouldn't suit as well.
