Stayed here for a weekend in September and had a very pleasant visit. Located just across the river from the main shopping area, the Gresham is convenient for exploring sites on both sides of town. Parking was included in a garage just down the street and our room (which was in the "modern" part of the hotel) was small but very clean and had a view of the east end.
The dining room overlooks the north side of Cork and here we enjoyed dinner one evening and both breakfasts - the latter was fresh, plentiful and served mostly cafeteria style. We stopped by the hotel bar on both nights and were impressed with the friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.
The hotel is showing its age in places (aren't we all!) but is certainly worth considering.
