Cork City,  listed as one of the Top 10 places in the world to visit by Lonely Planet, has hundreds of wonderful things to see and do for those visiting the city.

Stroll along the banks of the River Lee, sip coffee at a street side cafe and sample the multitude of culinary delights on offer.  Or, why not take time to enjoy some of the wonderful attractions featured on our Top Attractions page; click here.  If you suddenly feel as if you are walking on water, don't be surprised, Cork is a city build on water, set on an island between two arms of the River Lee.

Imagine the comings and goings when Cork was the final provisioning port for European explorers to the Americas and the British Navy in the Atlantic; when the city thrived on food exports sending butter and beef around the world.

And of course, if you’re looking for a base to use to explore the wonders of Cork, the Imperial Hotel is your perfect choice. Our establishment is located in the very heart of Cork city, and our four star hotel in Cork offers a luxurious haven to relax in after exploring the sites. View our special accommodation rates now.
