Cork City – A Shoppers Paradise

Alas, autumn is in the air. The world is turning golden, the nights are closing in, and there’s a freshness blowing as the world increasingly returns to normal. These seasonal changes can only mean one thing here at Hotel Isaacs-the launch of Cask Bar’s eagerly anticipated autumn menu. Cocktails….cocktails and more cocktails combined with some warming eclectic dishes from the team behind Ireland’s number one cocktail bar? Could we ask for anything more as we bid adieu to those long summer days? …

On Your Bike In Cork City

Pedalling hard, I ride…through the town and the countryside Tis’ the season to be biking! If there’s one thing this past year of lockdowns has taught us (or at least reminded us) is how great it is to be outside in the fresh air.  Whether that’s enjoying a relaxing coffee at our waterfall, savouring a cocktail from Cask in our courtyard, or exploring one of the city’s many wonderful walks- there is no doubt that Cork City has you well-covered for all of …

Beating The January Blues

January is here! And yes, perhaps it isn’t quite the “New Year, New Start” we all would like right now but let’s be frank: has January ever been the most exciting month of the year?  One could argue that if you’re going to be in a lockdown, there isn’t really a better time of the year to be in one.  With more exercise, healthier eating, and decluttering some of the top new year’s resolutions, there is no denying that being …

Local Cork Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again! Halloween has passed, the days have grown crisp, and love it or hate it, it is finally acceptable to mention Christmas. Another set of fairy lights and Christmas window displays are unveiled with each passing day and the Elf on the Shelf has returned to many homes. We cannot help but feel a little excited for December. Everything has been different this year and Christmas will be no exception to this. However, if there …

Staycation – The Best Vacation In Cork City

Who doesn’t love the gorgeous weather we are having right now?  The long evenings?  The joy of exploring all the beauty within our 5km radius?  Who has discovered streets they didn’t know existed, noticed unusual coloured birds, heard leaves and branches rustling, the sounds of children playing, realized that the tops of some buildings host some truly spectacular stonework?    Time in this new restricted world of ours can be bleak but there is no denying that it has afforded …
