the ultimate in luxury...

When it comes to luxury hotels in Cork, the Imperial Hotel  offers the ultimate escape in the heart of Cork City. The opulent building is over 200 years old and though it is steeped in history, is full of modern comforts. The establishment is also renowned as the most central Cork City hotel, one of the many reasons why it has earned a prestigious reputation. However, though it is located in the hustle and bustle of the city, our hotel is a haven of calm, each corner is designed to be a space to relax and unwind; from the lavish lobby, to our award winning restaurant and deluxe guest rooms.

The luxury of our penthouse reflects this ethos and our position as one of the premier hotels in Cork City. Located on its own private floor, it is the perfect hideaway for guests seeking a luxury stay or honeymoon destination. It also makes an ideal venue for a drinks reception, private party or business meeting. In particular, barbeques are hugely popular with the corporate market in the summer months.

The Penthouse offers two self-contained bedrooms.

Each bedroom boasts floor to ceiling windows and access to the rooftop wrap around balcony. From this vantage point, guests can watch the sun set with a glass of bubbly in hand and enjoy breath-taking views of Cork City. The balcony even comes furnished with an outdoor seating area, to ensure guests can make the most of the view. (It also makes the perfect spot to indulge in our 24 hour room service.)

The Penthouse contains a fully working kitchen and lavish seating area. The wide fireplace and comfortable couches make this the perfect space to relax after a long day exploring Cork City. The soft furnishings are lavish and contemporary throughout, to ensure you enjoy modern comforts for all of your stay.

Meanwhile, the bathrooms offer a power shower and separate Jacuzzi baths. Should you require even more pampering, guests of the penthouse also have unlimited access to our Vitality Suite in the Escape Spa which feature tropical, rain and mist showers; perfect for unwinding.

The Penthouse suite is available for different levels of occupancy.

The minimum occupancy of the penthouse is 1 adult, while the maximum is 4 adults. Each of the two bedrooms feature a comfortable queen size bed. The bedrooms can be accessed as part of the overall Penthouse experience, or occupied on an individual basis by those looking for Cork City hotels with panoramic views.

Please note, if the rooms are booked individually, they will not include access to the kitchen, sitting room or balcony area.
