We were there during the week and I would highly recommend a stay in this hotel. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Especially Kelly in the breakfast team. If I was in the position to hire staff in the morning I would add her to my team. Well done👍🏻 we will be back.

My husband and I have just spent 4 days at this hotel and would definitely visit again should we ever decide to return to Cork. The staff are lovely and very polite, including the night porter who had to let us out at 5.45 this morning to start our journey back to Dublin airport. We would recommend the hearty breakfast...

The hotel is a few minutes out of the centre and up a hill. but taking that out of the equation, its a lovely place to stay. the bar and restaurant serve up good local fayre. Although surprisingly the beer selection on draft is very poor. But I was informed they were sorting that soon. The wifi in the rooms...

We attended a family wedding in Sep 2015 at the Ambassador. Very impressed with all aspects of our stay. The room was very comfortable, with a balcony and great views over Cork City. The wedding facilities, ballroom & bar etc were first rate. I was especially impressed with the restaurant and breakfasts! Great value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Experience all that Cork has to offer from the luxury of one of the City’s best loved hotels where we feel certain you will want to return again and again. ... more   less
