Looking back over the years

Situated on the edge of the vibrant city of Cork, The Kingsley is celebrating its 5th birthday this year. The popular Cork hotel opened its doors with a glittering ribbon-cutting ceremony with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny in 2014.

After extensive flood damage forced the hotel to close in 2009, The Kingsley was later acquired by The Kang family who invested €6 million in the hotel’s refurbishment. After an extensive refurbishment, The Kingsley’s doors reopened with the creation of 130 new jobs and the hotel has remained at the heart of the hospitality industry in Cork City ever since.

With a tempting selection of bars and restaurants, a luxury spa and an extensive health club, The Kingsley offers guests an unforgettable experience in a stylish and distinctive riverside location. The second member of The Fota Collection, the polished and sophisticated hotel has impressed guests ever since its opening, picking up a number of prestigious awards along the way.

“We are delighted to be celebrating our 5th birthday this year,” says General Manager Fergal Harte, “the landscape of the hospitality sector has changed so much over the past 5 years and we are extremely proud of our staff and team who have continued to offer the highest levels of service during this time. We look forward to the next 5 years!”

Located on the doorstep of the city’s university and just a short distance from the centre of the buzzing city of Cork, during a stay at The Kingsley, guests can easily access all the city’s top cultural and culinary attractions and shopping facilities.
