Cork Hotels Offer Comfortable, Historic Accommodations

Cork, Ireland may be considered the country's "second city," but many local residents will claim it is Ireland's true capital. This amazing city is rich in history and culture, and the hotels in Cork, Ireland are as historic as their surroundings.

Perhaps one of the most memorable attractions is the Cork City Gaol Heritage Centre, its atmosphere whisking visitors back to the 19th century. A far better historic accommodation can be found at The Imperial Hotel, which has been accommodating travelers since 1845. Since then, it has hosted a number of famous figures such as Sir Walter Scott and Charles Dickens. The Imperial Hotel provides 125 bedrooms, including 10 executive suites, each with iron, ironing board, telephone, and satellite television. There are mini bars, fax machines and DVD players available in the executive suites, as well.

Another option for the weary traveler is the Maryborough House Hotel, which offers 78 bedrooms located on 24 acres of beautiful garden and woodland. Some rooms in this 18thcentury building feature breathtaking views of the surrounding garden and orchards, while every room comes with modern amenities.

Others may decide one of the 115 rooms at the Rochestown Park Hotel is more their style. This hotel has a more international appeal, evidenced by the rich furnishings and atmosphere. There's even a Presidential Suite, measuring 1,240 square feet, enough for a small house! Each room comes equipped with private bath, telephone, TV and tea/coffee making equipment. The swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms at the Rochestown Park are not to be missed!

Silversprings Moran Hotel is a four-star deluxe hotel for those looking for luxury. Terraced grounds overlook the beautiful river Lee, and the hotel is located minutes away from the Cork city centre. Silversprings Moran Hotel provides 109 bedrooms decorated in a contemporary style that doesn't sacrifice elegance. Each room includes a voicemail telephone, trouser press, television, and facilities for making tea and coffee.

As these few examples show, visitors won't have any trouble finding a relaxing and beautiful place to rest when staying in Cork.
