Cork’s new ‘micro-sleeper’ hotel will be geared towards tourists who travel light
It’ll be perfect for Millennials on the move.
Work on Cork’s newest hotel has begun, with the old Windsor Inn undergoing a full refurbishment to turn it into a capsule 73-room hotel designed to attract young globetrotters.
York Street, just off MacCurtain Street, will close for up to a year on January 6th, 2020 to facilitate some demolition and the building phase of the new Windsor Hotel.
According to Meitheal Architects, who are working on the project, the ‘micro-sleeper’ hotel is aimed at tourists who are ‘travelling light and are wanting to stay somewhere central’.
“Meitheal Architects worked closely with our clients and Fáilte Ireland to develop a new Welcome Standard for a modern sleeper room – a small, comfortable and modern room reflecting the needs and aspirations of the modern traveller.”
When it’s complete, guests at the Windsor Hotel will enjoy a ground floor bar and courtyard as well as one of the most convenient locations in the city for nightlife – Cask is a stone’s throw away, while The Glass Curtain restaurant is now open just a few doors up.
