... le proprio! Je lui explique qu'à Montréal les bars ferment à 3h! J'pense que mon accent à su charmer encore une fois! Je fais souvent rire de moi avec mon dialecte, mais parfois, ça du bon! PS: Décompte 22 bières! ***** First real rainy day that forces us to wear our raincoats. Luckily we had planned a sightseeing tour of the city of Cork. We are therefore sheltered but with all the humidity in the windows ...
... through the south side, and it has lots of wonderful alleyways filled with pubs, restaurants and small shops spilling into the streets. Although I was advised after my stay that the south side is the rough end of Cork, and maybe next time I stay the North side of the river haha.
My cousin Cat, whom stayed with us in 2006 when in Oz, picked me up and we headed off to Limerick. P.S Cat owns a pharmacy in Cork too.
... as well as their cousins from Gortnakilla (Florence, Daniel..........five cousins) possibly travelled to Liverpool and left from there. However, the White star line is famous for two things. The departure of the titanic in 1914, and the sinking of the Luisitana by a German u boat in 1915. It was interesting to see the conditions in the steerage class, which many of our ancestoers would have had to purchase for their voyage, which would have lasted up to 3 months. ...

Then we walked around the grounds and saw the other country manor which is huge. Took heaps of photos. Was 5.00pm by now so we headed back to the B&B to get changed and head to dinner. We walked 25mins into the dinner places that were suggested and ended up in a scary looking pub which didn't do food. Had a quick drink there before heading ...

The whole film was excellent and really brought a lump to the throat. Canberra and the QE2 were both proper ships (in fact, ocean going liners) and they just don’t make them like that any more.

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.
