Accommodation options in Cork, Ireland
The city of Cork has plenty to offer in terms of accommodation. Guests can choose between central locations within walking distance of key attractions, or they can retreat to outlying neighbourhoods for a more tranquil experience. The best selection is available to visitors who have arranged their own private transport, as this opens up neighbourhoods that are not immediately served by public transportation links.
With that in mind, all of the following hotels also feature parking facilities (paid in some cases) that guests can take advantage of:
Best Western Montenotte Hotel
Just 2 km outside of central Cork, this branch of the Best Western offers first-class facilities, including a sauna, gymnasium and hot tub. Vista Lounge offers panoramic views over the city and features live music on Saturday nights.
Clarion Hotel Cork
This hotel is located near the Cork City Hall and features well-designed rooms, a swimming pool and spa centre and two restaurants. Oysters Restaurant, in particular, was the first in Cork to focus on seafood.
