Dear robbienelson4, Thank you for taking the time to review the Imperial Hotel. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay over on our Valentines packages and that we could upgrade you and make your stay extra special. In relation to your feedback on the charges, we are as transparent as possible with both charges, having them both on our website and the parking charge on the confirmation letter. I do hope this has not deterred you for returning to the Imperial and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind regards, Mark Flynn

Hi Lynn, It would be the 226 bus from Cork Airport and stops on the South Mall which is where the hotel is also located. Prices for an adult are €3.90 single and €6.50 return. Hope this helps. Looking forward to welcoming you to the Imperial Hotel, Mark

You pay at reception for the car parking and are given a map to the car park. It is very simple to reach and about 3 minutes drive away. Tons of spaces but a hassle to get back to the hotel when leaving by car because of the one way road system. But maybe I'm just a bit slow.
