We had our wedding ceremony and meal at the imperial hotel last Friday and I could not recommend this hotel more. Despite level 5 covid restrictions, our wedding day was magical and exceeded our expectations. We had a civil ceremony in the morgan and Plunkett room of the hotel which is a beautiful room. The ceremony was beautiful and Jim our coordinator for the day at the hotel, helped make sure everything was perfect from music to walking down the aisle,to looking after our guests and just having a jovial personality! We had our meal for our 6 guests following this in the duchess room. The food was just delicious, much higher quality than your standard wedding meal! And to top it all off, we stayed in the penthouse suite which is beautiful and overlooks the entire city. I cant wait go celebrate out 1 year anniversary at this hotel next year :)

Had to spend the night in Cork for an essential appointment and had a pleasure of staying at the Imperial. Appropriate precautions were in place and the hotel was spotless. Unfortunately due to restrictions no food or other hotel facilities were available, but the staff still did their best to make our stay comfortable and easy. Would love to go back in better times.

Stayed one night due to essential business. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend The Imperial Hotel to all friends and family. In the centre of town also so couldn't ask for a better location.
