Your Cork Family Concierge
Meet Edel Kavanagh
WHAT TO DO
Rest and relaxation can be a real luxury for busy parents, and we’re sure you haven’t had much of it with the recent lockdown! It’s time to hand the reigns to someone else and let us do the planning, cooking and cleaning for a change.
Our dedicated Family Concierge has devised and tested a variety of family amenities to keep parents at ease and little ones entertained during your stay. From recommending socially distanced outdoor activities to getting you booked in for a movie night in the Cinema Room at our hotel, Edel has you covered, just let her know the ages of your children, your preferred activities (outdoor, water-based, etc.,) and she will be happy to put together an itinerary for you.
See some suggested itineraries from Edel here:
For all your food and drink needs, Edel can advise on the best family friendly restaurants and cafes. Edel can advise you on which food outlets require bookings and can assist you with making reservations so that the fun of the day isnt spoiled with a ‘where do we eat’ family debate!
From fussy eaters t catering for coeliacs, Edel is happy to scout ahead and let you know what’s on the menu.
Edel has completed training on ASD awareness with the Rainbow Club Centre for Children with Autism. We offer a range of visual support and other services for families to use both in advance of their stay and during their stay including:
Visual stories to download – Visual supports can be used to communicate with people on the autism spectrum. They are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations.
Sunflower lanyards – discreet sign that the wearer has a hidden disability and may need additional support.
Sensory boxes – Sensory boxes are filled with different textured material and toys for children can explore their senses by using these as a tool, helping children adapt to new environments and feel a sense of calm.
Extremely friendly staff and superb facilities. Interlocking rooms so it was great that all our group could be together. Would highly recommend this hotel. Excellent value for money. Will definitely stay there again.
Travelling with family
I was travelling with family and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay, comfortable beds, great breakfast and really good value for money. We'll definitely be back either before a flight or to stay for shopping trip to Cork.
Great kid's options
Wonderful stay. Hotel was very clean and staff were all lovely. Room spacious and facilities great. Lovely breakfast and great kid's options too. I would highly recommend. We will definitely be back for another visit.
Facilities for kids
Perfect location, quiet, lots of facilities for kids. Nice breakfast.
I booked a large family room for one night because I had a very early flight and it was so close to the airport. The staff were very friendly, the hotel and our room was beautiful. The food was very nice with kid's meals on the menu. We really enjoyed our stay and I would be happy to return.
Excellent hotel & very family-friendly
Stayed here with my family. Loved it and one day was too short! Would recommend it any day. The room was very spacious for kids to run around and the mattress on the bed was medium-firm, good for people with back trouble. The rooms smelt nice everything was top of the range. Food was great, the atmosphere relaxing and staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent place.
