Christmas time is here at last. It's hard not to feel a little giddy about it all especially after the year we've had. Suddenly, the thoughts of mistletoe and wine, Santa, stockings and elves fill us with warmth and cosiness. Suffice to say, after this strange year, Christmas has never meant as much and even those who typically harboured somewhat indifferent feelings towards the season can be seen getting into the festive spirit.
Here at Hotel Isaacs, we are no different. We are busy putting the final preparations to our decorating, the chefs are finalising Christmas menus and Cask are of course stirring up some seasonal delights. With that in mind, we have put together a list of some of the top reasons to come to Cork and stay with us this Christmas season.
Colette is a hotel receptionist working at Hotel Isaacs Cork. Her favourite part of the job is meeting the many guests coming from all corners of the globe and sharing with them all the wonders that Cork City and County has to offer. One of her great passions is travelling and exploring new places especially museums, galleries and castles. "One of the things I feel very strongly about is how so many people in Ireland are completely unaware of some of the hidden treasures right on their door-steps. When people go abroad, they push themselves to see all the cultural delights on offer but too often, they have no idea how great what is right in front of them, readily available every day is. I came to Cork as a student in 2008 and I too limited myself and didn't push myself to explore. It took a friend to take me off and show me how truly amazing this city and county is and this is what I want to share with my guests and readers.
