As I am a regular customer, I feel that this is the best hotel in Cork and I have tried many others. It is ideally located next to the river with a running track and next to a park. It has an indoor and heated outdoor pool and a fantastic gym. I am concerned to rate it too highly, as the next time I want to book it, it might be sold out ....
