Cork Summer Bucket List

We beg to differ! We’ve had a few scorchers over the past few days and we’ve already gone into full summer mode. This mainly involves packing our schedule with some of the many exciting events and festivals coming our way this summer. Of course, things are certainly heating up in our boutique hotel too. We have opened our brand new, reimagined Greenes Restaurant. Tried it yet? Come visit! The décor alone will have you transported to another world!Anyway, what’s going ...

Top 10 Things To Do In Cork City

Holiday season is upon us and one of the most common questions we get asked at Hotel Isaacs is for recommendations on some of the best things to see and do in Cork City. It’s a challenging question because the Rebel City simply has so much to offer from amazing bars and restaurants to stunning city walks to some of the best high-street and independent stores. Suffice to say, our list is constantly changing. Anyway, for this entry, we thought ...

Easter Getaways in Cork City

If you walk around the supermarket, you’ve probably noticed the shelves are filled to the brim with Easter eggs. Traditionally, Easter is a religious celebration but commercially, it’s really all about stuffing your face with chocolate. Of course, in the hospitality industry, Easter along with St Patrick’s Day typically marks the start of our busy tourism season and there is definitely a nice hustle and bustle about the place these days as we eagerly await the start of a fun-filled ...

Freebies In Cork City

And just like that- Spring is upon us! Who hasn’t heard someone marvel at the ‘grand old stretch’ in the evenings or some of the milder temperatures we’ve been experiencing? Indeed, it’s true! Excuse the pun but Spring is starting to spring and here at Hotel Isaacs, we are starting to feel the beginnings of an exciting tourist season fast-approaching. We’re also busy putting the finishing touches to our brand new Spring menu in Ireland’s number one cocktail bar-Cask. Is ...

Spring Love Breaks In Cork

Yes, it’s that time of year again where red and pink explode on to the market, cheesy rhymes are back in vogue, and everything seems hearts and flowers! It’s enough to make you float on air or feel nauseous depending on your personal feelings towards the day. Yes, love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is upon us! Admittedly, we feel we’re still in recovery from Christmas. Has it already been a month? Weren’t the decorations only up just yesterday? ...

Counting Down to the New Year in Cork

Ah, that idyllic Christmas scene we all know and love so well…. Of course, the reality is not always quite so peaceful.  Whether it’s the kids fighting over their new toys, those seriously boring relatives you have to endure once a year or just the general claustrophobia and inertia of living in a turkey coma- there is no denying that Christmas is not without its own unique challenges. This might possibly explain why those days between Christmas and New Year are ...

A Cork Christmas

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us! At our boutique hotel, we are in the throes of preparing for the fast-approaching Christmas season.  Suffice to say, everything is very merry and bright here these days. We have decked the halls with boughs of hall, twinkling fairy lights and that’s before we even venture outside into our courtyard-our very own Winter Wonderland with the star of the show- Cork City’s only waterfall currently home to a larger than ...

All That Jazz

It’s that time of year again!  Not quite Hallowe’en, not quite in the zone for Christmas shopping, possibly still lusting after summer days, kids back to school, nights closing in- you’d be forgiven for wanting a bit of energy, excitement and light in your life.  Allow us to save you from the impending winter bleakness with a reminder that the best festival of the year-the Cork Jazz Festival is hitting our streets the October Bank Holiday weekend.  Deemed by many ...

Top 10 Reasons to get to Cork this Autumn

Crisp leaves, lushness, golden colours, the shortening days and a noticeable drop in temperatures- yes, Autumn is in the air and after a non-stop go, go, go summer, we are looking forward to the impending cosiness and adapting to a slower, more indoor focused lifestyle. Of course, here at our boutique hotel, we do warmth and cosiness very well.  Our deluxe and superior rooms as well as our self-catering apartments are the perfect place to unwind after a day’s retail ...

Best Festivals In Cork City This Summer

Summer sun-something’s begun! Excuse the somewhat corny start to this blog entry (Is there anything that says summer more than a blaring of John Travolta and Olivia Newton John on ‘Summer Nights’) but we can surely be forgiven for feeling a little bit blissed out by how blessed we’ve been recently with all of this gorgeous weather. We are all feeling summery at the moment. Our guests are in fine form, Greenes Restaurant is sprucing up the menu to reflect ...
