An elegant and relaxing five-star retreat in Ireland’s second city, the Hayfield Manor Hotel is Cork’s finest hotel. Superb service, a wonderful spa and award-winning dining make Hayfield Manor the ideal base to sample Cork’s rich history and culture.
Cork city’s finest luxury hotel
Inviting country house ambience yet just a short walk from the centre of Cork
A haven of tranquillity set amongst walled gardens
Wonderfully relaxing, with an excellent on-site spa
Although its red-brick facade lends it the appearance of a classic Irish country house, Hayfield Manor is just a ten-minute stroll from the vibrant centre of Ireland’s second city. Set at the end of a tree-lined path among mature walled gardens, Hayfield Manor is a tranquil urban haven of elegance and pampering, and boasts a fabulous spa, fine dining, and an authentically hospitable Irish welcome.
The 88 generously-proportioned en-suite rooms at Hayfield Manor are each individually styled, decorated in a restrained classical style with gorgeous antique furnishings and plush fabrics. Thoughtful touches such as complimentary chocolates along with marble bathrooms filled with Elemis spa products and all the amenities you might require make your stay here extremely comfortable.
The comforts continue downstairs, whether you opt for an indulgent afternoon tea in the drawing room or would prefer to sink into a deep armchair for a read or snooze by the library fireplace. Should you feel in the mood for some head-to-toe pampering, the Beautique Spa will awaken your senses with its range of massages, body rituals and facials. Spa facilities also include an indoor heated swimming pool, steam room, outdoor Jacuzzi and a fully equipped gymnasium.
Award-winning contemporary Irish cuisine is served at Hayfield’s Orchids Fine Dining Restaurant, and private dining is offered in the hotel’s subterranean wine cellar, while more casual meals can be enjoyed in the garden bistro, or with a pint of Guinness at the bar.
A short stroll into town will take you into the lively centre of Cork with its smart boutiques and famous English Market, one of the finest covered markets in the British Isles, where you can find a wonderful range of local food purveyors – it’s a great place to meet the locals. In the evenings, Hayfield’s concierge will be able to advise on which bars have the best live Irish music. Not far from Cork, Kinsale is a charming harbour town that has become Ireland’s gastronomic epicentre, while Blarney Castle and the world-famous Jameson whiskey distillery are other nearby attractions.
