There’s nothing worse than trying to plan a weekend and being overwhelmed by choice when it comes to finding somewhere to stay. Picking the perfect location, rating and size for you and your party can be one of the hardest parts when planning your stag weekend, so luckily for you we’ve taken all that stress away and narrowed down your choices to the best 3 hotels that Cork has to offer. With a choice of 3-star and 4-star hotels, each right in the heart of the city centre, you know you won’t need to stay anywhere else this weekend, meaning you can get on with planning just how you’re going to spend it.
For a hotel that has every little bit of luxury you need to make this weekend truly one for the history books, look no further than Clayton Hotel Cork City. This beautiful 4-star hotel has literally everything, including a bar, restaurant, swimming pool and a spa, so you can relax, unwind, and know that you have somewhere super luxurious to head back to after a heavy night. Sat right on the bank of the River Lee, you get spectacular views out across the city, and with just a 14-minute walk to one of Cork’s hottest nightclubs, Havana Browns, you couldn’t get better than this 4-star accommodation. If that isn’t central enough for you, Imperial Hotel Cork is even closer to the heart of the city, and surrounded by some incredible cafés, bars and restaurants. You have less than a 10-minute walk to the clubs, and plenty of boutique shops on your doorstep, so you can experience everything Cork has to offer without ever having to wander too far.
If cheap and cheerful is more your vibe, Jurys Inn Cork is the ultimate 3-star stay. With a restaurant on site plus both coffee alcoholic bars, this is the perfect place to kick off your big night out. Found right on the banks of the River Lee, you get the best views and the best location, without having to splash out on the cost. You’re less than 15-minutes’ walk into the centre of town where there are more bars and restaurants than you can count, and you’ll be glad you saved the extra money when it comes to your round. You’re also just 7-minutes’ walk from the Merchants Quay Shopping Centre, so you can indulge in a couple of extra treats for yourself (and maybe one for the fiancé too) to really make this weekend special. Wherever you choose to stay in Cork, you’re guaranteed the best weekend you’ve ever had, so take all the stress out of choosing and just get on with enjoying it.
We know how important location can be when you’re booking your accommodation, which is why we’ve made sure that all of our recommended Cork hotels are right in the heart of the city centre, surrounded by as many shops, bars and restaurants as you need to make your weekend run smoothly. Everything is well within walking distance, but if you’ve planned activities that are a little further out of the city, we can also arrange transport to get you to and from whichever of our activities you want for just a small extra fee – no waiting around for taxis or trying to figure out the public transport – because who can be bothered with that?
Making your stag weekend go off without a hitch is one of our top priorities, which is why we’ve reserved room allocation in all of our recommended hotels, so you never need to worry about missing out on your dream accommodation. Some weekend can fill up quicker than others, particularly around October when Cork Jazz Festival happens, not to mention their famous Christmas markets, however as long as you’ve booked far enough in advance you should have no issues booking your stag weekend during these times.
Of course – we don’t want anything to ruin your weekend, so we’ve made sure that you and the boys are covered for everything, including any accommodation issues that you might have. We are a fully accredited travel company, and Last Night Ltd are100% ABTA protected (Y6354), meaning you can book your weekend with us knowing you’re completely covered with all necessary legal protection.
