Thank you to all at the Ambassador Hotel for making our wedding in September 2015 a memorable and magical day! Living in London when searching for a reception venue it was important that we found a place which was intimate, personal and on-the-ball. The Ambassador Hotel was all of these and more. From the first meeting Gillian made sure to...

My husband and I were road tripping round Southern Ireland and this was our first stop, for two nights. The hotel itself was good, very nice and clean with good service however, the restaurant needs some work. Firstly, booking a room doesn't come with breakfast, which for me I think is a necessity. It cost an additional €12 each. We...

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in October. Well ran with friendly and super helpful staff. Room was great and was looked after very well when contacting reception. Great location if using the train station and perfect for a business meeting as it has ample parking right outside the front door.

We have just returned home from a few nights away in Cork. We stayed here at the Ambassador and from the moment we arrived we were looked after. Our flight was early so we arrived before check in time. The kind receptionist tried ever so hard to get our room ready. Explained it would be a little while and advised...

The impressive facade of this wonderful red brick Victorian building gives any visitor a sense of the rich history of the area and a clear example of 1870’s Irish architecture at its best. It is not surprising therefore to find that The Ambassador Hotel offers quality service, professionalism and the comfort of our guests are at the forefront of our minds at all times.
