The Metropole Hotel, Cork
The staff and service here is outstanding. It wasn’t until we checked in and went to our room that we realized the property has no air conditioning.. our room was hot. They did give us extra fans but that does not adequately replace air conditioning. The location is nice and the breakfast was very good. I could not recommend a stay in warmer weather.

We had an amazing stay at the metropole. John Coleman is the concierge and was so extremely helpful. He took the time to sit down with us and explain fun and interesting things to do in the area. He seemed happy to help us with any needs or questions we had. Everyone at the front desk was kind and helpful as well. The staff is truly the best! Thank you John and everyone at metropole!
