Central and elegant, The River Lee is set on a picturesque bend on the river just a short walk from Cork city centre. The River Lee has been entirely reimagined and the hotel’s ground floor now includes sleekly stylish spaces like The River Club Bar, Terrace & Grill Room, the glamorous private events space, The Mirror Room, and the new destination in the lobby, The Cocktail Bar.
Celebration is in order for the management and staff of The River Lee who are delighted to have won Best Hotel Bar at the National Hospitality Awards 2019, held recently at The Shelbourne, Dublin. Now in its 14th year, an award from The National Hospitality Award is a distinctive and prestigious recognition, with awards only being presented to those businesses who meet the rigorous standard of the judging panel, excelling both front and back of house service.
Ruairi O’Connor, General Manager of The River Lee said “We are over the moon to have won the award for Best Hotel Bar at the National Hospitality Awards 2019. Having recently refurbished The River Club Bar, the entire team at The River Lee has worked extremely hard to create an unforgettable experience for our guests and to be recognised in this way is extremely special.”
