Welcome to The River Lee

Set on a picturesque bend in the river, just a short walk from Cork city centre, The River Lee hotel occupies a unique position in this charming historic city. Ireland’s ‘second city’ is a lively cultural hub with an opera house, independent art galleries, museums and theatres, vibrant nightlife and a growing craft beer scene and hosts several festivals throughout the year – notably culinary, music and film.  Additionally it boasts a thriving foodie scene centred on the famous English Market and is ideally placed for visits to kiss the legendary Blarney Stone, the historic fishing town of Kinsale and the rest of Ireland’s ruggedly beautiful southern coastline.

The River Lee hotel is one of Cork’s leading business and social destinations. All aspects of Cork local life are played out here, from business events and family celebrations, to casual get-togethers in the hotel’s highly popular Weir Rooms including the Weir Room Restaurant, Bar and Terrace on the Weir; a key location in Cork’s growing food scene. Resident guests also have complimentary access to the hotel’s in-house health and fitness club with a 20m swimming pool and spa. 


Behind every door there’s a super-comfortable bed with crisp linens and a cosy duvet, a spacious bathroom with under-floor heating with many offering river views and city views of iconic sights such as St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Shandon Steeple and University College Cork… not to mention the prospect of a wonderful night’s sleep!
