... It was raining, but the produce was beautiful and fresh. One of the vendors had fresh made chocolates and brownies... all gluten free!
We made our way down the medieval side streets listening to chatter and clatter and music and then got in the car and headed for Cork.
This port city is split three ways by the river Lee. We had dinner at the Woodlands and went back to the B&B.
Tomorrow: back to nature.

... guide for today. Cork is Ireland’s second city and is built on the River Lee which divides into two channels at the western end of the city. The city centre is located on the island created by the channels. At the eastern end of the city centre where the channels re-converge, quays and docks along the river banks lead to Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, which is one of the ...
... think a lot of people were in the same boat as me, thankfully the last stop was the bus station at cork, from which I had excellent, easy to follow instructions to my hostel (which was especially great as this was after 11) went to sleep.
Sunday, I woke up and went to cork baptist church - got there about 40 minutes early as I didn't realize how close! It was a really nice, little church. They sang 3 hymns that I knew - timing was a bit weird but was great to ...

We found Barrycourt castle (still closed this time of year.) From here we travelled to Cloyne and Whitegate in search of a beach to have a picnic. The area here is beautiful, the roads one car narrow, fields with green grass...driving takes really long under these conditions. We found fields with daffodils where they warn us to "preserve" ... At one stage we found ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rochestown Park Hotel Cork
Keep it up
We had our wedding reception in the Rochestown Park Hotel over 10 years ago and our friends still tell us it was one of the best weddings that they ever attended. We go back for a break most years, to "The Cork Hotel" as the kids call it, and our stay is always enjoyable. It's great to see how the place has developed over the years but it's refreshing to still receive the same quality of service that made us choose the Rochestown Park to begin with. Keep it up.
Rochestown Park Hotel - Superb
I have stayed several times in the Rochestown Park hotel - both for business and pleasure. I have always found my room to be of the highest standard. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.
The dining room offers top rate service and exquisite food.
To relax, the hotel offers a superb leisure centre and I have always found the Thalassotherapy centre to be a real treat. A walk in the beautiful landscaped gardens is also a good way to unwind.
I would highly recommend the Rochestown Park Hotel.
Stay as far away from here as possible
My advice to anyone who would even dare book or stay in this Hotel is simple. DON'T. It is an absolute joke for a four star hotel. The rooms are small and cramped and I found the staff to be just plain ignorant.
Be warned!!!! Stay well clear.
I am a little puzzled by the Irish Tourist Board allowing this Hotel to be 4 star when it really is a weakened 2 star.
A large industrial hotel
Having stayed in the Rochestown a number of times, I have held off writing a review until now. The hotel boasts great facilities, with an excellent leisure complex. However the hotel has grown out of all proportions and is now a large industrial complex. The rooms as noted in other reviews can be in poor condition. The rooms in the newer parts of the hotel are in mediocre/good condition. However the food is of limited quality, and high price. I have also found on my last three visits, that the noise during the night is the most disturbing, with staff moving items noisely around the corridors at 2-3 in the morning. I use the hotel for business purposes, and it is fine (there are better in Cork) but for a restful holiday I am not so sure
I stayed in the Rochestown Park Hotel and i must say it was excellent. The staff were very friendly. The accomadation staff were most helpful and attended to my every need. At the evening time when i requested more towels and had my laundry delivered the night staff was most cheerful, friendly and efficent,thank you Shauna. Reception staff were very welcoming esspecially Micheal and Karen. Thank you for a wonderful stay and i recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a night relaxing break away.
The room you are allocated in the Rochestown Park Hotel will very much influence your opinion of this hotel - I've given 3/5 based on our experience, but it would have been lower if we hadn't been allocated the room we were given.
Avoid if possible
Shabby rooms, unhelpful staff, average food. Very poor value for money
Waste of money.
Stayed for one night in dec 2003. The room was very shabby and not very clean. The bathroom was in particularly poor condition. Breakfast was mediocre. When leaving we expressed our dissatisfaction at front desk and their response was almost rude. They definitely couldn`t care less.
Enjoyed the stay
I really enjoyed one night at this well located 4 star hotel. The Spa is very relaxing and good for a break after work and before dinner.The stuff at the restaurant have been very friendly and chaty and the food was the best 4 course dinner I ever had in Ireland.Unfortunately the hotel do not have any internet access what has been very disappointing for a 4 star hotel.
