Get Romantic in Cork this Valentine’s Day

Celebrate in The River Lee

Romantic city break in Cork in The River Lee 4* hotel

Now that the ever so gloomy month of January is almost behind us, it’s time to start looking for things to get excited about. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time for a sneaky romantic getaway.

Terrace on the Weir in The River Lee hotel, Cork city

The River Lee has the perfect offer for this time of the year. The Romantic Escape includes two nights in a beautiful, spacious room, complete with gorgeously plush beds covered in kitten soft linen. When you arrive into your room, you’ll find a bottle of wine and chocolates, ready for you kick off your break in style.

Each morning, you’ll enjoy a full breakfast in The Weir Rooms, where you’ll find a wide array of tempting treats as well as healthy options (though the freshly made pancakes are fluffily divine). On one evening, you’ll head to The Weir Rooms for a five-course dinner. Overlooking the water, this restaurant is one of the finest in the city, serving up delectable cuisine with a strong emphasis on local, seasonal produce.

Terrace on the Weir is also a prime spot for romance, where you can cosy up under woven blankets and watch the lights bounce of the water, while the patio heaters keep you toasty. Share an English Market Tasting Board with a bottle of wine, and you’ll get a taste of all of the best products from the English Market.

On your last day, you’ll also get a late checkout of 2pm, so you can enjoy your last morning at leisure, perhaps dipping into the on-site swimming pool after breakfast.

The Romantic Escape is available between February 9 – 18, and costs from €199pps for two nights. You can see more information, as well as booking details, on the website
