The River Lee Hotel, Cork
Really nice hotel!
Loved this hotel - very upscale, beautiful and comfortable room, great restaurant that offers really good food - especially the daily breakfast (best we had during our entire stay in Ireland). Cork itself wasn't very appealing, however. Used the hotel as a base and traveled around from there.

Our stay at the River Lee Hotel was great. We landed in Cork around 2. Our rooms were ready for us. We had a beautiful room overlooking the river. The hotel gym was also lovely. I would recommend.
