Cork, County Cork


Standing on a bend on the river just a short stroll from the city centre, the River Lee Hotel is that rare destination, a truly urban hotel, in a leafy waterside setting, with genuine warmth of service. A university town with a young and vibrant population, Cork has a rich cultural scene, with international Jazz & Film festivals.


Well-loved institutions such as the Cork Opera House and the Triskel Arts Centre, sit side by side with an eclectic collection of independent galleries and theatres.There is also a strong food culture centred on the famous English Market and supporting a variety of intimate bars and restaurants. The "second city" is the perfect base from which to explore the rich hinterland, or to travel west along the coastline of Ireland's largest county.


A striking contemporary building, the River Lee Hotel has a series of tall and bright ground floor spaces opening onto a large sunny terrace overlooking the river. Quality natural materials such as wood, stone and glass provide a background for an interesting collection of contemporary art. The relaxed and comfortable furnishings combined with the warmth of service make this a perfect place to meet.All of Cork life is played out here, from leisurely weekend breakfasts to business lunches, from late night cocktails, to that special celebration.


The rooms at the River Lee hotel are truly outstanding; all are bright and spacious, with large comfortable beds, four piece bathrooms and dedicated work spaces. They enjoy a range of panoramic views; across the city from our front facing rooms, over the leafy parkland of the Bishops Palace to the rear, or from our premium corner rooms directly onto rushing waters of the weir. Guests enjoy complimentary access to our in house health club complete with gym and 20mtr swimming pool. Relaxing treatments can be booked at the award winning Urban Escape Spa. The dedicated business floor has a range of meeting rooms, some with outside terrace space, where a variety of business and social events can be curated by our in house team. Special menus featuring the best of local produce can be prepared by the Weir Restaurant kitchen.
