The New Kid on the Cork Block!

23 10 2007


Now in our home town of Cork people tend to think that there are way too many hotels. In the last five years, we’ve added at least a half dozen new hotels to the area including some heavy hitters like the Clarion, Sheraton, Radisson, Capella, as well as extensive renovations to existing properties resulting in the new Jurys Cork Hotel and Montonette Hotel.

Still, as hotel fans, we’re really glad to see that there’s still room in the market for hoteliers with a bit of imagination and at the new Cork International Airport Hotel, imagination is an understatement.

From when you first walk down the timber walkway and through the glass doors into the expansive lobby, you know you’re in for treat. Quirky décor is combined with a feeling of comfortable surroundings and an almost intuitive feeling of where everything is located.

It’s only when you start to explore the nooks and crannies that the magic of the hotel becomes apparent. From the Pullman Lounge off of reception where guests who are waiting on their flights can relax in the comfort of a recreated first class airplane cabin, complete with first class airline seats, to the bakery in the lobby, fantastic bar and restaurant, the hotel just seems to go on and on in its efforts to amaze and surprise.    

This attention to detail extends into the lifts, corridors and into the bedrooms which are meticulously planned to ensure guest comfort. We look forward to checking in soon at what we’re sure will be one of the hotels leading hotel and dining destinations.

why is it an airport in its name?

The hotel is located adjacent to the new Cork International Airport ( so a lot of the business base comes from airport business.

A lot of the interior of the hotel takes inspiration from airlines, with model airplanes and other little features adding to the fantastically quirky decor.
