The Kingsley Hotel is now ranked among the top 10 hotels in Cork, according to a leading travel website. Accommodation search engine, Travelmyth.ie, rates the luxurious four-star property as a premium choice for those looking to stay near the city centre.
A member of The Fota Collection, the hotel was purchased in 2013 by the Kang family of Beijing following a five year closure. Since its reopening in 2014, the brand has grown from strength to strength, redeeming its position as one of the most popular spa hotels in Cork.
Overlooking breath-taking views of the River Lee, the property offers a relaxing haven just minutes outside the hustle and bustle of the charming city centre. Renowned for its natural spa and top notch dining options, The Springboard and Fairbanks Restaurant, a romantic couples weekend or girly pamper session at The Kingsley is the ultimate treat. Rejuvenating the mind and body, you will be thoroughly relaxed upon your departure, leaving you dreaming of your next stay.
Fáilte Ireland announced a record year for the tourism and hospitality sector during 2016, with the number of international visitors up over 10 per cent bringing an estimated revenue of €8 billion to the country. Despite the negative aftermath of Brexit, it is predicted a heavy footfall will increase over the coming years as tourists continue to choose the Emerald Isle as a prime vacation destination. With future growth expected in the industry and a reported shortage of guest beds in Cork City, The Kingsley has recently applied for planning permission of a 63 room extension to meet the demand for accommodation. A decision on the application is expected later this year.
Other hotels featured on the website’s top 10 include; Hayfield Manor, Fota Island Resort, The River Lee Hotel and the Cork International Hotel.
