Everyone dreams of the Royal treatment, and with Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla visiting Ireland this dream is more present than ever. With last nights’ launch of two luxury boutique collections; The Ellis and Tobin, the Oriel House Hotel are making this Royal treatment possible for their guests to the four-star Ballincollig hotel.
Following an extensive investment worth €2 million, the Talbot Collection’s 4-star Oriel House Hotel worked with top designer, Chrisna Duffy, to create true luxury and style in the form of the Ellis & Tobin Collections. Nominated for the “Fit Out Awards 2017”, these newly transformed bedrooms and suites provide guests with the perfect place to escape and relax. Their vintage décor provides an illuminating atmosphere, unique to this stylish property on the outskirts of Cork city centre. The Tobin Collection is exquisitely decorated with stunning designs that cleverly merge old and new eras together. The Tobin Collection, the epitome of comfort and style, is comprised of 11 premium executive double guest bedrooms. Meanwhile, the Ellis Collection, with the coveted suite 110 and 4 boutique double rooms, is a place of solitude and calmness, with these rooms providing the icing on the cake to guests’ four-star hotel experience. Ensuring no detail was overlooked when creating these decadent collections, each suite and bedroom is fitted with a luxurious marble bathroom, which boasts underfloor tile heating.
Both collection follow their own distinctive theme which runs through, not only the rooms themselves, but also the corridors. Every room in these collections have hand-picked statement art pieces and furniture, with the eye being drawn to so many Instagram worthy details.
The 4-star Oriel House Hotel, a proud member of the Talbot Collection, has become synonymous with class and style, with guests their number one priority. Location in the centre of bustling Ballincollig town, and just 8km from Cork’s city centre, the Oriel House Hotel allows for convenience without compromising on glamour or privacy, offering guests a 5-star experience in this affordable 4-star hotel.
No ordinary venue, the Oriel House Hotel exudes a fairy-tale feel, thanks to its unique blend of classic elegance and modern style. The historic Georgian manor house, a charming listed building that dates back to 1805, stands proudly next to the modern spacious lobby, while the chic guest bedrooms and grand ballroom all provide the perfect mix of comfort and opulence. Those that tie the knot in the Oriel House Hotel receive the royal treatment in the expansive Honeymoon Suite, situated in the exclusive 18th Century tower, where the happy couple can enjoy total luxury during their stay. Event hosts in search of something a little different also have the option of hosting their guests inside the recently-revamped Leslie Suite. Along with the Ellis and Tobin Collections the Oriel House Hotel boasts 83 additional guest bedrooms, along with a state-of-the art leisure centre and Talbot Tiger Kids Club for mini VIP guests.
Speaking at the launch of the Oriel House Hotel’s Tobin and Ellis Collections, General Manager Ronan Fahy commented, “We are so thrilled to be opening the doors to style, comfort and pure luxury, with the launch of our Ellis and Tobin Collections. These collections don’t match the vision we had in our heads, they surpass it. They are so different from anything you will see or experience in other hotels across Ireland, and this is something we are so proud of. Our new guest bedrooms are the images of interiors magazines come to life, and we hope our guests will agree. We look forward to welcoming new and old guests to the hotel to experience the Ellis and Tobin Collections over the coming weeks and months.”
