Weekend Curators: Caroline's Taste of Nostalgia

A luxurious overnight stay curated by Caroline O'Donoghue 



Caroline O’Donoghue is a London based author, podcaster and screenwriter, but born and bred in Cork - a fact that she thought was deeply unimportant until she moved to London.
Caroline says: After a few years away, I found that everything I wrote was strongly informed by growing up in Cork city. I've developed this overnight weekend offer to give you the chance to experience a touch of nostalgia in the city I feel deeply inspired by.

  • Overnight accommodation for 2 adults sharing in a luxuriously appointed bedroom on a room only basis

About The River Lee

Set on a picturesque bend in the river, just a short walk from Cork city centre, The River Lee hotel occupies a unique position in this charming historic city. Ireland’s ‘second city’ is a lively cultural hub with an opera house, independent art galleries, museums and theatres, vibrant nightlife and a growing craft beer scene and hosts several festivals throughout the year – notably culinary, music and film.
