... after our experience with Typhoid Mary in the restaurant in Portmagee! It was a shame that we had wasted a good 45 minutes standing in line, but everybody was good natured about it. So instead of making the trek to the top of the castle we explored the gardens for awhile. They are very beautiful and include a poison garden which is really interesting. We ate lunch in one of the little pubs in the town center and then hit the road for the ...
... Shame job!!!!! I'm sure all the American tourists had something to talk about when they got back on their tour bus.....oh yeah did you see that Aussie's knickers. Oh how embarrassing! hahaha
Paddy then took us to have some food then drove us to Youghal. It is a beautiful little coastal town in East Cork. Just gorgeous scenary and such a long beach. The streets were so cute and colourful and it had a nice lighthouse there too. We walked along the ...
... obviously have had a makeover during the past few years.While walking, I kept thinking of myself living here and I definitely think I would like it. The English Market would be a perfect place to get fresh fruit (and vegetables...) and I found this perfect little place that served stuffed potatoes with tuna and cheese! And that was within a day - so no matter how picky I am, I think when it comes down to it I would definitely be able to make due here :) truthfully, the only reason ...
... never spent time with him outside of the pub, he had become a friend nonetheless, sharing stories about life and love while slinging Jack&Diets and Rum&Cokes across the bar, week in and out. We were all disheartened when he announced he was leaving Atlanta to pursue a business venture in his native Cork, wherein he kept running what is arguably the oldest bar in the city. Given our travel advantage and love of all things Irish, Rufio and I promised Colm we would visit. We are ...
... way back to the city center. At this time we realized we were both hungry, so we decided that we'd treat ourselves and find a restaraunt or cafe to eat a late lunch. Finally, on a backstreet we found a little Italian restaraunt named Il Padrino. I ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese and it was AMAZING! It came with two flatbread garlic breads and those were sooo good also! After we finished our meals we decided to finish it off the right way and we ordered ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ambassador Hotel Cork
excellent hotel,superb views with very friendly staff and very spacious rooms.i certainly will return when in cork.
Cork is not the nicest part of Ireland and this hotel is somewhat tarnished with the same brush. It is an old Victorian on a hill with limited views but nothing of much interest.
We stayed here for a weekend 17-19 June 2005. Large spotlessly clean room (and generous bathroom) with balcony overlooking Cork city and excellent breakfast in very pleasant surroundings. We had breakfast in room on first day - not entirely sucessful - but fine in restaurant. Neighbourhood not the best - some way out of town centre but views more than compensate. Recommended.
Clean and friendly with wonderful views
I have just returned from a 3 day break at this hotel, i couldn't fault the cleanliness the room was spotless and the bathroom was immaculate. The only downfall was the food as the menu was sparse and the food not too enjoyable and maybe a bit pricey forwhat you get on your plate. The staff are really friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. The hotel is built on a steep hill and to walk down to the centre of cork would take you 10-15 mins, we took a taxi back a few times as the hill can get too much at times. I would stay at this hotel again because its CLEAN and i do believe cleanliness should be top prority to hotelier. All in all a pleasant stay with great views over the city of cork.
A Wonderful Hotel - full of character
Stayed here for one night, found it to be a most wonderful hotel, rooms are really huge and very well finished. Food was average for the price, but by no means bad. 5-10 minutes walk to the city centre, down hill. All in all a very pleasant stay.
View almost makes up for the rest.
If you get a front of house room the view, especially at night, is nothing short of splendid. Staff are pleasantly efficient rather than friendly. Housekeeping standards (paintwork, non-working appliances etc.) poor and restaurant staff will very firmly redirect you if you're incautious enough to sit (in the absence of information) where they don't want you. Beware Ireland's no smoking laws which mean you may smoke ONLY in your room or outside the building. It's a ten minute walk to the riverside / city centre but allow fifteen back as it's a steep climb. Ample parking.
A truly charming hotel
I LOVED this place! It was clean and beautiful. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful too. The unique balconies overlooking the pretty little city of Cork, were the icing on the cake.....I stayed at several hotels on my recent visit to Ireland and this one was definitely my favorite by far.
good hotel, apparently it used to be a lunatic asylum and has been only recently converted to a hotel and so all the rooms are very big. Also v clean and in a good location. If your a visiting also take in Kinsale about half an hours drive away and well worth the visit.
Our stay in Cork
The Ambassador Hotel was lovely, we were a bit worried after reading another review which stated that it was a 45 min walk into the centre, this is untrue, the hotel is in a brilliant location & it took us 10 mins to walk into the centre. The rooms were lovely, very large, warm & comfortable, we would definitely stay again.
We stayed here earlier this year (2003) to celebrate an anniversary and had a great time. Rooms are big and very well furnished with own balcony, breakfast was fantastic (delivered to the room!) and the staff were always friendly and helpful. It's a bit far from the city, at least a 45 minute walk, but taxi's are easily available and only cost a few Euro. Since the hotel is set up above the city, its romantic at night to look out over the city to see it lit up. Definitely plan to visit there sometime in the future.
