The Cork International Hostel is a spacious Victorian red bricked building with 96 beds, right across the road from the University and near all the great pubs within Cork city.

The hostel has a self-catering kitchen as well as a warm welcoming TV room at the front of the building and all rooms are en-suite. Our Cork Hostel has 24 hour access and always has information available on the city in its welcoming foyer. Staff can speak French as well as Polish and make every effort to ensure your visit to their home city is one to remember.

Take a trip out to Blarney Castle which is good value for money for the grounds and of course the Castle itself! The ‘English Market, Cork’ is a traditional indoor market, and is one of the best in the United Kingdom, because of its quality fresh produce and personality.

In our review of the Cork City Hostel is part of the An Oige Ireland. In our truth of informations would be fully beautifully Island City between two riversides. Poorly performed part of the happens by bus is next to the hostel. Just to off the spacious area behind the lavatories has poorly freshness. Good location.

Attraction tip

Ah, it's all good: the Crawford Gallery (free) had a good exhibition on current European identity; the Saint Fin Barr's cathedral was surprisingly interesting inside and out (and I liked how they encourage prayer, unlike some churches you visit); visiting Fota Island by train (every hour) and then on the same ticket to the attractive port of Cobh is a great day out; walking around Cork (from the Mardyke along the river into town is beautiful); and more... up to you.
