The Imperial Hotel is the top choice for private dining Cork city has to offer. Our 4 star hotel has a reputation for luxury and offers a number of options for corporate dining. One of the most popular of these is the modern Penthouse Suite. This luxurious area can host either a private barbeque, buffet dinner or sit down 5 course dinner. The Penthouse can accommodate 20 people for a seated meal, and 40 people for a finger food, buffet or bar only set up.
Located on its own private floor of the hotel, the Penthouse Suite offers the utmost luxury.
It features a wraparound balcony, perfect for hosting a corporate barbeque high above the Cork city lights. In fact, the stunning views are almost as delightful as our private dining menus. However, should you prefer to enjoy the panoramic views from the interior of the Suite, dining areas can also be arranged in the interior of the Penthouse. The floor to ceiling glass windows ensure your guests won’t miss out on the views. Our dedicated events team would be delighted to arrange the seating in whichever way you prefer.
Event hosts can also arrange for their own entertainment in the Penthouse. This may last until 12.30 am on the weekends, and 11.30 am on weekdays.
Our dining menus are seasonal, and are prepared by expert chefs
With the famed English market on our doorstep, our chefs prepare each dish with a range of local, seasonal ingredients. Each course is prepared in our hotel kitchens, and delivered piping hot to the Penthouse. A private barman will also be on hand for the night, serving spirits, wines, minerals and bottled beers.
The Penthouse suite has two rooms which can be used for accommodation
If members of your party require accommodation within the hotel, the Penthouse Suite has two separate bedrooms, each furnished with a queen size bed. It also includes a bathroom with power shower, and two separate Jacuzzi baths. If no accommodation is required, these rooms can be closed for the duration of the event.
Other business rooms are available within the hotel, at discounted rates for corporate travellers.
The Imperial Hotel is the most centrally located private venue Cork has to offer
Our hotel is located in the heart of Cork city, ideally situated for corporate dining. The network of motorways connecting Cork to other Irish cities provides easy travel for Irish guests, and the close proximity to Cork airport enables international gatherings. In fact, Cork airport is only a 11 minute drive from our doors. Should you require it, our team can arrange private transport from the airport.
