  • Is parking available

    There is not a car park at the hotel. We are happy to provide a limited number of car park spaces at the Union Quay car park, which is a private car park approximately a 4 minute walk from the Imperial Hotel Cork. The charge for the car park is €10.00 per day from 3pm on arrival to 12 noon on check out. You will need to check in to the hotel to get a pass for the car park. There is a set down area just outside our front door where you can leave your car for a few minutes while you check in. Our porters will be happy to deliver your luggage to your room while you park your car. Maximum height is 2 meters within the car park. We cannot pre-book parking, therefore, spaces are on a first come basis. Parking is free on South Mall directly opposite the main door of the hotel between 6.30pm and 8.30am from Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday.
