We stayed at the River Lee on the last leg of our two week trip around Ireland. The room was very nice and spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were amazing. The staff were all very nice and professional. The drinks, food and staff at the River Club were phenomenal. Paul was extremely nice and ended up speaking with us for about 30 minutes about Ireland and his hometown of Belfast. It was great to hear a locals perspective and tips about places to visit. Parking is free and very conveniently located in a parking garage on site. Great location for walking to the nearby bars and shopping. Only about a 15-20 minute walk to the massive shopping district in downtown Cork.
