It opens in November.
And with a few short weeks to go before the seven-storey Dean Cork starts welcoming guests, they’ve given us another taste of what’s in store for visitors to Cork’s newest hotel.
Visitors to the Horgan’s Quay development will get a whole new perspective on Cork from Sophie’s Rooftop Restaurant and Bar on the sixth floor.
With 360° views across the city, Sophie’s will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and brunch on weekends. The rooftop space has two terraces for outdoor dining, the perfect spot to watch the sun go down, cocktail in hand.
Coffee lovers can hit the ground floor of the hotel, where Dean Cork will be brewing up Irish roasted DIME coffee, for all your caffeinated needs throughout the day.
With super-fast wi-fi, plugs and hot-desking spots, this will also make a handy spot to catch up on a bit of work if you’re in the area or recharge your laptop while you meet a mate for lunch.
As well as creating 120 full-time and part-time jobs, The Dean Cork has assured us their walls will be covered with over 400 pieces of eye-catching, innovative and inspiring Irish art from both established artists and up and comers, sourced predominantly from Cork and the Munster region.
Hosting an event? You can rent The Blue Room, a bright and funky function room with private bar, for presentations and parties, with two smaller meetings rooms available to hire too.
The Blue Room will also be available for intimate weddings, which, given the Covid-19 situation, are likely to be the first choice for couples for some time to come.
Take a dip in the heated pool, opening this January
If you’re in the market for a new spot to work out, you won’t need to be a guest to use the Dean’s POWER Boutique Gym, scheduled to open in January 2021.
According to Dean Cork, POWER is a “luxurious and functional facility in which to train and recover, with world-class equipment and group classes, high spec changing rooms, state of the art sound and lighting, sauna, steam room and a heated relaxation pool.”
All Dean hotel guests can enjoy complimentary access, with the option to partake in classes with leading trainers for an additional fee. Full membership of POWER is available for locals.
“The Dean is all about fun,” said Bryan Davern, Director of Hotels.
“Stylish, slick and comfortable rooms packed with everything you might possibly need, spaces for work and for play, great food and drink, brilliant Irish art, boutique gym, music and loads more. It’s got something for everyone, whether you’re staying with us or not. We want The Dean Cork to be a launchpad from which to explore the city and make memories”.
