The Metropole Hotel Cork

Old-world glamour meets modern pleasures in Cork

The Metropole Hotel Cork

The Metropole Hotel Cork has a compelling heritage, having evolved from a sweet shop and ‘dry’ hotel to the glorious hotspot of hospitality it’s known as today. Recently renovated, our prestigious property is both at the heart of Cork and everything you want from a stay in the city, featuring cosmopolitan pleasures in a classic setting. Book a room with us to make your mark on our history.

Located in the Victorian Quarter, The Metropole Hotel Cork is the city’s most iconic hotel: world-renowned for our warm hospitality and attention to detail, and for having welcomed stars of the arts including the screen and stage. Stay with us to indulge in the finer things in life – impeccable service, sophisticated design, rich food and timeless elegance.

Our guests can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city by day – exploring Cork’s most famous tourist attractions, shopping in boutiques or visiting its multitude of galleries and theatres – and retreat to our haven by evening. Relax in your elegantly-decorated room. Unwind in our leisure centre, or while away the evening in The MET Cork. Our team of mixologists and culinary artists will delight your tastebuds, and perhaps even share some stories and secrets from the hotel’s past.

At the Metropole Hotel Cork, you can feel its history combining with innovation and modernity to create something truly special. Join us to experience our legacy first-hand.
