Things to do
Our ACCOMMODATION is ideally located for CORK CITY shoppers, lovers of nightlife or those who prefer quieter pursuits such as leisurely strolls along the river bank, parks and historic sites of the city. Also located on WESTERN ROAD en route to N22/N71 South-West Cork and Kerry, it is an ideal base for further exploration into the celebrated south-west of Ireland.
COUNTY CORK is situated in the South West of Ireland, it is the largest of all the Irish counties and in many ways the most varied. Rich farmlands and river valleys contrast with the wild sandstone hills of the west, and above all there is the magnificent coastline scooped and fretted by the Atlantic into great bays and secret coves, strewn with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands.
