While we didn't get a city view room, the room was nice. It had what you needed but no down comforter or any of the fancy items. The staff was courteous and the breakfast was right on the riverfront. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for at. Patrick's night.

Dear lcampion86, Many thanks for your feedback. I'm thrilled to read you enjoyed your Patrick's Weekend with us and that you found your Breakfast in our charming Riverview Restaurant to have all you needed, it's a very old part of the building but it's still one of our favorites. All our teams here are over the moon with your review,...

Good Food - Poor Service I ate here on Saturday with my wife and two kids. I had the prawn linguine, my wife had the trout and the kids had chicken/chips. The food was really good - fresh and flavoursome. It is a nice room off of the main bar with a nice atmosphere. The biggest criticism is the service....

Lovely hotel located 5 min walk form city centre. Friendly obliging staff. Leisure centre complete with 20 metre pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi a real bonus. You won't get better value around the city centre.

The Metropole is one of the older hotels in Cork City. We stayed for one night as we were visiting a local venue for a concert. For anything over on the northern side of the city you cannot beat this for location. 5 minutes up the road to St. Lukes. The room was clean if a little small. The lift...
