7 minutes walk to the town where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. A walk through the little streets and you could be anywhere in Europe.

Great hotel experience

My stay at the River Lee Hotel was a great experience. The staff were very polite, professional and friendly. The cost was excellent compared to the other smaller hotels in the area. I would definitely stay at the River Lee again on my next visit to Cork, and recommend it to others.

High quality hotel with amazing breakfast

We spent four nights here last week and can thoroughly recommend it. It is 5minutes from the centre and near to shops, local pubs and restaurants. We had breakfast each morning and paid 12.50€ by booking the night before- believe me the breakfast is well worth that. The hotel is modern and has floor-ceiling windows that are striking and along with the glass lifts the overall impact is impressive. We had a bar meal which was good but we ate out in the many bars and restaurants in the centre of Cork. A must visit is Sin e and the Corner House as well as the Shelbourne lounge all around McCurtain Street- best traditional music. All in all a great trip and hotel choice was key to this.

Take the Paddywagon to Kinsale, Cobh and blarney castle booked at an information office on the way from the hotel to the centre- we'll worth it...don't get the open top bus as this tour gives quite a bit of the same information- far better!

disappointing location and view from room

Good hotel, restaurant a little expensive for average food. The view from our room was a brick wall unless you got close to the window and strained to look to you right when you could see some trees and a little grass. Very disappointing.

Great city centre hotel

We had a fantastic city brek in Cork staying at this hotel. A mix up with our luggage meant we arrived without our case and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable with the bed deserving of a special mention. The food in the bar and the restaurant was superb and all the staff in the hotel were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is ideal just a five minute walks to the delights of Cork.

Go straight to the tourist information office in Grand Parade for maps and info on what's on in Cork and e surrounding area. Very helpful and friendly. Oh and try eating at the Liberty Grill on the way down Washington Street - superb.
