Tuesday & Wednesday in Cork with the family

A travel blog entry by akreyling

Tuesday we decided to sleep in, a little bit and then had breakfast downstairs in the hotel. it was yummy, most breakfast options I had in a long time. I had anatomy class at 12 to 1 that I could not miss, so while I was there my mom and Emily went into the city and walked around and explored until I came and found them. Erich was not feeling to good so he stayed in the hotel the whole time. We walked around, went into ...

Whiskey In The Jar

... on our balcony for the first time this trip, with the evening sun warm on my face. On my way to the theatre I went for a look around the shop, where they had handbags on offer; I got a nice tan and yellow one for only 20 quid. Then it was time to go along to the show.

When I got there, however, there was no sign of Charlie or Linda, and in fact they never turned up. It ...

... and green and breathtaking. We found that the universal law also apply to Ireland : the richer the people the higher the walls.

We found the very special 13th century ruin of Kilfane Church is tucked away behind a lot of trees but clearly signposted.

The most remarkable feature is the effigy of "Cantwell ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The River Lee Hotel Cork

    Nice new Hotel on site of old Jury's Hotel.


    We stayed on a Sunday night and found this hotel to be very nice. On parking the car in the underground car park (free to guests )we took the lift to hotel foyer. Check in was slow but we were very pleased when we entered our room. As this hotel is new everything in our room was spotless & there was a flat screen tv with a good channel choice + DVD player.

    Great place, little pricey though


    Enjoyed our stay here, really nice rooms, great view. Had a meal in the hotel, which was great, but somehow they couldn't put it on my credit card. They then sent someone up so I could pay by cash, who seemed to be void of any personality and was borderline rude. Staff at the restaurant were great though. Hotel was probably a little over priced, but still enjoyed my stay.

    A great treat


    I found this hotel on a recommendation from a friend of mine much more traveled than me, he reckons it's like a home from home.... Myself and my wife stayed here for our anniversary, the weather was dreadful but the hotel was a real gem, we got a really nice quite room away from the river front. On the food front normally we don't eat in hotel restaurants especially if we are staying in a city, but the weather was so bad on the first night we decided to brave the hotel restaurant and I must say we were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. The food was to die for....... my wife tried to get their recipe for the Chocolate Fondant but no luck :o) Its clear they pay allot of attention to detail, and when the general manager takes the time to check you are enjoying your meal I think that says it all.....

    Well worth the trip


    We stayed in the hotel over the weekend and I can honestly say that it was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The bedrooms were spaciously, with all the mod cons i.e. flat screen TV, CD/Radio, internet connection etc and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The bathroom was also spacious with separate bath and shower and under floor heating. The decor throughout the hotel is gorgeous (modern but very welcoming) and extremely clean. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly (reception, bar and restaurant staff alike), even though the hotel was extremely busy. We had breakfast and dinner in the Hotel on both days and thoroughly enjoyed all. The leisure centre was lovely and clean, the added touch for a relaxing weekend. I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Cork to check out the Jurys Cork Hotel whether it be for business or pleasure. We will definitely be returning.

    Pleasantly Surprised!


    I was pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel was. Only recently renovated so everything was lovely and fresh. Located a short distance to the city (€5 by taxi) and within walking distance to pubs, clubs and restaurants.

    Staff very helpful and friendly on recommending places to eat etc.

    Had a Very Relaxing Weekend


    I stayed in the hotel for a weekend at the beginning of December. The hotel is very close to the main shopping area and quite a few restaurants. Found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable. All in all I couldn't fault anything about the couple of nights that I spent there.

    Gorgeous, but RUDE


    We've returned from our trip, and wanted to report that the Jury's Hotel was gorgeous, great location (for me anyway), food was great, taxis cost about 6 Euro to go into the city (bus depot).

    Fabulous Hotel!! Would move in..


    Stayed at this hotel last weekend, a very enjoyable break and so great to stay in a worthy 4* hotel! The rooms are so comfortable, black out curtains, flat screen tv, best bed I ever slept in and real power shower. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was so good. we had dinner in the Leeside Bistro, very impressive menu. Had pasta to start, then a chicken dish and apple pie to finish! Top class service. There was a jazz band playing in the bar so a very relaxing atmosphere. Took a stroll into town, less than 10 mins.Will definately be back to this little haven! Well worth a visit to Jurys Cork Hotel..couldnt fault it.



    Stayed for one night. Property is being finished off, but that wasn't a problem for us. Very comfortable beds and very good sized room.



    Great location. Rooms nice. Hotel not yet finished - drilling and hammering througout hotel, so don't expect any rest during the day - even on a Saturday. Children not catered for. No service in reception/lounge area. General service slow and very patchy. Food nouvelle cuisine - nice but not particularly tasty. Supermarket blackpudding starter for €9. Side dishes served after main course complete. Lukewarm coffee served after delay. Trendy bar - obviously the latest place to be seen - so it is busy much to the disadvantage of hotel guests. Same as restuarant - busy so you better book in advance. On the positive side - breakfast was excellent.
