The Lodge is located off Washington Street in the heart of Cork city. It is about 30 mins walk or 10 mins taxi from the train station and about 20 min walk from the bus station. If you are driving it is very easy to locate and has free parking which is great for the city centre. Our accommodation comprised a double bed and a single, both very comfortable, in a twin room and as the rate is for the room, €116.00 room only, you can have up to 3 stay. The room has tea/coffee making facilities with biscuits, a hair dryer, multi channel tv and offers smoking option. The en suite is large and well lit with fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries and the shower is powerful!! The rooms and en-suite are very clean and well designed so are attractive as well as comfortable.
The only criticism would be the lack of air conditioning. While it should be noted that the weather was very warm the rooms proved stifling overnight and the fact that the windows only open a limited amount compounded the issue.
The staff are friendly and welcoming and very helpful. As we did not have breakfast I cannot comment on the quality of the food only that both continental, €8, and full Irish, €12.00, options are offered.
Early check in is also possible and late check out on request.
All in all very comfortable and extreemly good value if you don't mind sharing a bed and have 3 in the room!
