Concert in the Round and off to Cork

A travel blog entry by craigmorris


... lot of concerts! Libby has a bit of a cold, but doing much better.
The concert today in the town square of Waterford was super fun and there was great atmosphere. The weather was perfect! Sunny, warm and not a drop of rain. To play in the town of Waterford for the community of Waterford was an incredible feeling!! Although we have no real association to the city I felt a strong kinship. I have wanted to play in Waterford, Ireland for a ...

An evening out in Cork

A travel blog entry by salevine


After my nap I was feeling much better (but still a bit sick) so I went to find some food. I wandered around the Main Street and found a little cafe (photo below) and has chips and tea to get warm. I got a bit lost on the way back and learned that unfortunately there are two rivers in downtown Cork, so my rule of "find the river, find the hotel" failed me. But I made it back and hung out with Summer a bit until the others got back from ...

... pile of rice, and spooned in half the veggies/juices/sauce on top of the chicken and rice. This was absolutly delicious! Nothing like the crockpot version I am used to at home, but a great spin off of a recipe.

I highly suggest some warm fresh bread to eat as well, would have been so good with the juices, but I did not have any tonight! Perhaps tomorrow with my leftovers!

So our last night in Dublin was pretty much amazing! Erin, Tamlyn and I made pasta which was delicious and I drank the whole bottle of wine I mentioned earlier by myself. Needless to say...I was intoxicated. The crazy Swedish boys, Will (guy from Cork) and his friend Tom (who is not MySpace Tom), Sam, Paul, Jennifer (also Swedish) and Molly (lives in DC) all played drinking games in the kitchen with us. Sam was the one who taught us how to play ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Imperial Hotel Cork

    Nice hotel in the heart of the city


    The imperial hotel in Cork is a nice, clean hotel in the center of town. It has a pub, a coffee shop and a restaurant which are very convenient. We had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone going to Cork.

    Great Location


    We were on a driving trip through Ireland without hotel reservations. It was getting late and we decided to stay in Cork. We parked the car in the City Center and walked around looking for a hotel. Within a few minutes we came across the Imperial Hotel. From the outside the hotel looked like a five star hotel, with a door man and a beautiful lobby. Our first thoughts were this hotel is probably out of our budget, but we should at least ask what is a price of a double room. To our surprise the room was medium priced and it included a full breakfast. The Imperial Hotel is an older hotel, but our room was quite comfortable. After checking into our room we decided to walk around the streets within a few blocks from our hotel. To our second surprise the hotel was in a shopping, restaurants, and pub area. If you find yourself in Cork, you will enjoy staying at the Imperial Hotel.

    Convenient, but can be noisy at night


    Having compared this hotel with the Gresham Metropole and Izaac's I'd say it's the best of the three - convenient for the town centre tourist attractions and in a good neighbourhood (the others are in a run down area). Refurbishment is ongoing and my wife and I had a lovely 'new' room, clean and smart with a beautiful bathroom and lots of character. The main drawback can be noise at pub emptying time - the early hours in this part of the world. Ask for a quiet room and forego the view - avoid overlooking the front or sides of the building. The staff were all helpful and considerate. Scoozi's Italian restaurant/cafe nearby has great atmosphere and good food at a reasonable price. The hotel breakfast is excellent. We paid a room rate of Euro 120 for B&B, which was better than the other two hotels I've mentioned could offer. Phone the Imperial and ask for their best rate - if you don't ask you don't get! If in Cork I'd stay here again - can't say fairer than that.

    OK but could use a cleaning


    An old hotel, which I liked (creaky floors, strange stairs, etc.). A friendly staff, good restaurant, fine sized rooms in a great location. Unfortunately, the furniture showed its wear, the chairs were dirty, and the bedspread was absolutely filthy. I've stayed in some pretty nasty places but this was almost too much for me.

    Not so bad but not so good.


    We stayed at Imperial Hotel at beginning of May. This hotel was actually very convenient to explore Cork city on foot. But that's all.

    Why go elsewhere?


    Stayed in a lovely room for three in April. Marvellous location - most things within walking distance. Stunning lobby and very friendly staff. Everything clean and plenty of toiletries. Would definitely stay here again - the rate was good too.

    Magnificent hotel in magnificent city


    Stayed at Imperial entire month of July, 2004.

    Loved the Imperial


    I just got back from a one night stay at the Imperial Hotel which was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were a nice size and very clean. We were out late so we missed breakfast but my sister went down to the front coffee shop to buy scones and the staff there set her up with some wonderful scones and danish with plates and silverware to take back to the room.

    Right in the center of town.


    Spent 3 nights and really liked hotel and its location in the flat part of the city. Could easily walk everywhere. Food was very good. Breakfast cooked to order. Loved Cork and would stay at the Imperial again.
