Will there ever be a year quite like 2020 again? Surely not in our lifetimes! Summer 2020 will be remembered as the summer of the staycation, the summer where outdoor dining became à la mode, where deciding which face-covering best matched your skin tone became your biggest fashion decision, and where cycling, hiking and all manner of outdoor pursuits became the new “going out”.
Yes, despite everything, we are determined to make the most of this new normal and here, at Hotel Isaacs we are no different. Dare we say it but there is almost a charm to it all. Our boutique hotel nestled in Cork’s Victorian Quarter is alive with the sound of excited families, solo-seeking adventurers and loved up couples eager to experience the best of these gloriously long (and mostly sunny) days. In our last blog, we focused on some of the amazing things to do outdoors in Cork City.
This time, we’ve decided to focus on something a little different- an alternative way to spend a day in the Cork area.
Hungry yet? We thought so. Fear not, we have you well catered for. Choose from a mouth-watering meal at our award-winning Greenes Restaurant where residents enjoy an exclusive 15% food discount or how about Ireland’s number one cocktail bar, Cask?
Choose to sit inside or outside in our heated courtyard with the view of Cork City’s only waterfall providing the backdrop to the perfect end to your action-packed day of adventure.
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.
