All nine treatment rooms have been comprehensively refurbished in this chic urban retreat and the latest addition to the premises just unveiled – a Spa Boutique selling products from all the exceptional ranges used in the Spa, including Neom Organics, Kerstin Florian, Natural Spa Factory, and the Handmade Soap Company with the introduction of OTO product range and treatments to the Spa this July.

From relaxation to inviting new guests – if you’re looking for a stylish hotel for you and your four-legged friend, the Kingsley is now a dog-friendly hotel right in the centre of Cork.

Twomey said that dog guests are greeted on arrival with a welcome bag from the team and there’ll be a bed, bowl, blanket and towel set up for you in your room.

“The hotel, on the banks of the river Lee and surrounded by the Lee Fields, is the perfect setting for plenty of scenic walks that you and your canine pal can enjoy together. You can also explore the vibrant city centre, just a bone’s throw away.”

Holidaymakers to Cork and their furry friends can choose the Paws & Unwind package at the Kingsley which includes an overnight stay, breakfast for two in the hotel’s beautiful outdoor dining area or a pet-friendly section in K Lounge overlooking the river Lee, or if you prefer, in your room where you can sneak some breakfast treats from your plate to your expectant pet is available to book now from €215 per room.

The outdoor dining options now available all over the city are fantastic, giving visitors to this vibrant city a true taste of Cork culture, food and night life.”
