Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

Set on a picturesque bend in the river, just a short walk from Cork city centre, The River Lee occupies a unique position in this charming, historic setting.

All aspects of Cork local life are played out here from social events and family celebrations, to glamorous get-togethers in the hotel’s highly popular River Club Bar, Terrace & The Grill Room – the perfect place to eat, drink and be social.

Award-winning Afternoon Tea is served in The Cocktail Bar daily, and at night, this modern take on a mid-century cocktail bar is transformed to a cosy and chic hideaway – perfect for whiskey and cocktail aficionados alike.

The hotel ground floor was fully refurbished in 2018, as well as upgrades to the light-flooded guest bedrooms.

The River Lee was awarded Best 4 Star Hotel in Ireland in 2019, and The River Club was awarded Best Hotel Bar in Ireland the same year.
