Fun Stay!
What a treat to book a hotel not knowing they are hosting a Jazz Festival! What a great venue and hotel and right in the middle of everything!

Great Hotel!
Our one night stay was wonderful. The Metropole is a nice hotel with exceptional staff. Fiona and John the Concierge were extremely friendly, helpful and kind. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. John’s personal attention to the coffee in the early morning and ice cream for dessert was above and beyond and very much appreciated.

Great time at the Metropole Hotel - staff was great - especially John the concierge. The updated hotel and restaurant bar area are beautiful very good food & drinks.

Wonderful Stay!
I loved this hotel! This hotel was such a great experience from the moment we arrived. John the concierge saw us arrive a few hours before check in and immediately sprang into action. He put our luggage to the hold for us and immediately suggested a whole list of activities and restaurants until our room would be available. And our room! It was gorgeous and lovely and so comfortable with a nice sized bathroom. I missed this suite for the rest of the trip as our hotel rooms were much smaller and more dated after. Cork is a wonderful town with incredible people. There is an emerging food scene in Cork and every meal we had there was spectacular. Just a hint to book reservations in advance as word is out how fantastic these culinary gems are.
