This is a friendly, clean, modern Guesthouse which had been recommended to us. The breakfast was excellent both the continental or the full Irish as my husband sampled! We were given a room on 4th floor facing the street which we thought was ideal. However the noise from 'revellers' in the street between 10.30pm til 3am was very loud and...

Although we only stayed one night it was a fantastic experience. Really friendly receptionist, terrific room and the best sleep I've had in ages. I love a good shower and the water power was excellent in this venue. Breakfast was very good with free newspapers and endless coffee. We were able to leave our car in the secure car park...

stayed here for 1 night. very good value at €90. Booked on their web site from the phone as very easy. Room was clean and all you needed. Very good for an overnight or two night stay. It could be a bit cramped if staying longer. No car parking fee which is always welcome. Check in was fast and friendly,...

We had a room on the top floor which was fairly small. The bathroom was well appointed, but due to the sloping roof space the bedroom was cramped and the bed seemed small compared to others we had on our trip. Also the shower had a mind of its own, it would just stop for 30 seconds and then start...

Lancaster is in the heart of Cork and is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of the town. Interesting location next to a river/canal but not hard to find and plenty of parking. Outstanding breakfast with wonderful service!

Hotel is in a great location for the nightlife. The room was spotless and we had ample room in the bedroom and bathrooms. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and showed us how to walk into the town. On departure she even gave us complimentary water for our journey. Beautiful hotel and i would definitely stay again!

I had been meaning to stay here for a while as many people told me it was outstanding. Maybe I had too high expectations but I found it just to be average. However, the views are very good with St Finbarrs Cathedral in the background and its location is only a stones throw from the city Center.

This bright new hotel is in the centre of Cork and close to the historic sights. Very comfortable and helpful and friendly service at reception. A quiet location and comfortable beds great for a good night's sleep. Secure free hotel parking makes it a great place to stay if you're driving.
