Official Opening of Terrace on the Weir at Cork’s River Lee Hotel

The River Lee Hotel, situated at Western Road in Cork city, recently held the official launch of its new riverside terrace – Terrace on the Weir. The Weir’s waterside location serves as an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of Cork city centre. The refurbished space is located in a discreet setting with the beauty of the River Lee all around. The terrace has been renovated thanks to an investment from the hotel’s owners, the Doyle Collection. Terrace on the Weir was completed in a mere two weeks and offers both a sophisticated and contemporary space in an intimate setting that will help guests and visitors to relax and unwind.

The terrace can accommodate up to 50 guests who by day can take advantage of the riverside atmosphere, the variety of colour and enjoy the sun whilst enjoying a lunch or coffee. At night the space transforms into a venue for hosting small, intimate events or enjoying the hotel’s award-winning cocktails, food and entertainment.

The terrace has already picked up a Cork Business Association Better Build Award for enhancing the riverside area. The terrace has a garden-like atmosphere enhanced by the use of large ferns, olive trees and wooden furniture.

The River Lee is a four-star hotel that has 182 rooms, designated as either Superior or Deluxe. Rooms give the impression of being light and airy as they all have floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel also has a gym, spa and 22m pool. The River Lee was recently ranked eight in the top ten hotels in Ireland in Trip Advisor’s 2015 Travellers’ Choice Awards.

The River Lee Hotel is a member of the Doyle Collection. The Doyle Collection has 8 hotels located in five cities – Cork, Dublin, London, Bristol and Washington DC.
