Wonderful 3 night stay at this hotel. Rooms were lovely and clean. Bed was big and spacious. The breakfast was great and the staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help. I would definitely stay again on my next visit to Ireland...

Hotel History

Our building opened in 1720 as the North Infirmary Hospital and served the people of Cork until its controversial closure in 1987. After years of neglect the site was redeveloped as a hotel before being purchased in 2008 and rebranded Maldron Hotel Cork. More recent investment has elevated the Maldron Hotel Shandon Cork City to 4 star status and we remain at the heart of our community.
