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.

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 ...
