Hotel is also listed in TripAdvisor’s top 25 hotels in Ireland – fewer than 1% of travel website’s listings achieve this milestone

The Cork International Hotel has been served a double helping of accolades this week with the hotel receiving praise from two of the country’s most reputable tourism names.

The hotel, which is located close to Cork Airport, has been listed in TripAdvisor’s top 25 hotels in Ireland.  The annual Traveller’s Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel.

The honour is given to those who receive a high volume of above-and beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period.  The travel website states that out of their 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.
