About The Hotel

I remember many years ago, when my better half was in the Theatrical business, having to get up at the crack of dawn on St. Stephen’s Day and drive like the clappers to Cork in time for the afternoon performance of the Pantomime in Cork Opera House, with which he was involved. There wasn’t a sinner on the road between Dublin and Cork and in record time we were checking into our Hotel – Jury’s Hotel on the Western Road! In fact, it was the only Hotel open in Cork on St. Stephen’s night and only goes to show what a great service they always provided.

However, the years move on and the former Jurys Hotel is now the spanking new River Lee Hotel, part of the Doyle Collection of luxury hotels here, in the U.K. and the U.S.A. Ever ahead of the time the hotel was completely rebuilt and restyled within the the past two years – the only original part is the site and the river! The minute you walk into the lobby you are blown away by the cool hip décor and feeling of light and spaciousness.

There are now 182 bedrooms each equipped to the highest standards of comfort and design to ensure the guest feels cosseted and comfortable. Superior Rooms, of which there are 138, boast duck down duvets, luxurious pillow-top beds, airconditioning, flat-screen TVs, Tea/Coffee making facilities, pay per view movies, 24-hour news and sport channels (including Sky Sports), mini entertainment systems, games consoles and complimentary Broadband access. Bathrooms have underfloor heating, separate power shower units fluffy towels and aromatherapy products.

If you really want to push out the boat go for a Deluxe Room of which there are 44. These are on the penthouse level, which is the Executive Floor, and take full advantage of the views. Full height windows overlook the city and there is just that feeling of something really extra special – of pampering yourself. Deluxe rooms have all the comforts of the Superior Rooms plus some other little bonuses and treats such as a newspaper of your choice, Nespresso coffee machines, towelling robes, an evening turndown service and use of the Executive Lounge with Internet access, a book collection, light refreshments throughout the day and a large widescreen TV.

After you have enjoyed a bit of further pampering and beautifying in the Urban Escape Day Spa you can take yourself down to The Weir Bar which is a lovely relaxing area which also does excellent casual Bar Food. They also have the excellent Weir Bistro with lovely views overlooking the River Lee. Starters include West Coast Crab with Guacamole, mango and chilli salad, baby spinach, or Parma Ham and Buffalo Mozzarella with marinated olives, rocket salad and baby gherkins.
Mains from the grill include great fillet and sirloin steaks, leg of lamb steaks, seabream and poached Irish salmon. You can read fully about food at The Weir on the restaurant side of this website.

The location is fantastic, in the City, but in a quiet location in a good area on the river, and only ten minutes from Patrick Street. They offer really good value for superb standard accommodation and ambiance. Check out all their different breaks.
