Cheap hotels in Cork

Could someone please tell me the name of a cheapish hotel in Cork, I will be arriving on Monday for a night or two because I'm giving a Czech hitch-hiker a lift form Derry....... It's a long story

I book most hotels through Booking.com: 86000+ hotels worldwide. Book your hotel now!

It's useful when traveling about.

Hey Daryl, just saw this post now.. how cheap are you looking for? You probably want some good parking too! It's Monday evening now so you're probably in Cork checked in by now. Best of luck. But if you need to move you could try one of the following:

Official website of the Isaacs Group | Dublin Hostel, Youth Hostel Dublin, Cork Hotel, Cork City Hotel, Lismore House Hotel, Jacobs Inn Dublin
or
Cork Hotels, Hotels Cork City | Jurys Inn Cork


She's obviously very hot this hitchhiker! Sounds like a nice road trip...

Ehh, I'm not the one needing the hotel, I live here

Jurys is alright, never stayed in Isaacs, good restaurant I hear though! The other Jurys (changed name now) is very nice.

First of all Dermo, sorry I didn't get a chance to call around to you today, "Cork city" turned out to be Rosscaberry (I can't remember the spelling) out near Clonakilty so I didn't get a chance to call in with you, I'll post the PTG down to you (really easy to use) when I get home since I built your hopes up and let you down, could you plese PM me your address?

Re Hotel: I managed to drag a cousin along with me for the trip so we drove home again. We travelled down through Galway, Limerick etc and started to go home that way but took the new motorway from Galway to Dublin and racked up 750(ish) miles in 13.5 hours. Not bad for a wee 1.4 Thanks to everyone for their suggestions though, I will visit Cork this summer it is a beautiful county.

Re the weekend: Where do I start? I was at the music festival in Buncrana (approx 15 miles from my house) and ended up spending about €800 and travelling around 900 miles in a weekend.... despite the free accomodation

Re Hitchhiker (23 yo Female): Without a doubt the most interesting person I have ever met and I really mean that. I saw her walking about Buncrana on Thursday night at around 2am with a huge backpack looking a bit lost so I offered her a drink. She politely refused because she told me she was trying to make her way to Cork before Tuesday night. Of course the drink started talking and I told her I would leave her to Cork first thing on Monday morning, forgetting that my car has no MOT or insurance and hasn't moved in about two months . She gladly accepted my offer and she had a few drinks and stayed with us.
Of course the next morning I realised my mistake and was going to offer to pay a bus fare or something until she started telling me about her travels/ life. She Hitch hiked the whole way from The Czech Republic to Malin head without spending a penny on a train/ bus or ferry. Luckily she is very well educated and speaks five or six languages and posed as a translator for truck drivers so she got on the ferries for free. She has also hitch hiked as far as Taiwan and has been to 22 European counties all in the last five years during her holidays from university. This year she is spending six weeks in Ireland because it is her favourite country in Europe thanks the peoples attitudes and helpfulness. The tales from the different counry/ cultures are amazing so I decided to find some way of taking her to Cork
She is travelling to Galway soon and God know where after that so if anyone sees a lone flemale hitch hiker with braided hair and a greeny brown waterproof top (which is nessesary in Irish summers) please stop and give her a lift, you won't regret it. She is the first hitch hiker I jave ever spoken to and I plan to speak to many more after meeting her, especially since she has offered me a place to stay in Prague anytime from November onwards and another offer of a place to stay for the Brno Road race

It was the strangest and best weekend of my life.

P.s No durt, just a very interesting woman

It was unreal. I haven't even mentioned the night out in Buncrana that ended up in Derry or the inflatable animals (see my facebook for a picture).

Nothing exciting, he just coughed the money for a few drinks on a night out, we couldn't think of anything exciting to do (and it couldn't be anything too crazy for a simple bet). I owe you all a drink if we have a Christams party

Speaking of pictures, i took this at the weekend and I love it

No problem at all, no need to post the thing down to me we will sort it at a meet in the future , its not urgent as its only for my benefit not that other prats . West cork ! Its spelt Rosscarbery , and I work in that neighbourhood but not with the Alfa .. Have a fiat bravo van for the roads down there . That Hitch hiker seems to be an interesting companion but not all Hitchers are like her . Glad you liked the ol home town , west cork is indeed a beautiful place .

She certainly is. I'll have to take the bike down around Tipperary and Cork becuse I loved the roads, I'll give you a shout when I'm down because I'll have a lot of free time
The roads between you and me are crap though
