‘Met’ Honoured by ‘Historic Hotels’

Cork’s Metropole Hotel took bronze at the Historic Hotels of Europe Awards. The awards honour unique, important and cultural properties across Europe and recognise their excellence in hospitality.

This is the ninth year of the programme, which culminated in an awards ceremony at Sierakow Manor in Poland. The Cork city hotel, located in the heart of the Victorian Quarter, received the bronze prize in the Historic City Hotel Award 2023.

As part of the judging process, tourists, culture seekers and history lovers vote for their favourite nominated properties across 10 different categories.

The Metropole Hotel, which has been welcoming guests for 126 years, received the award in acknowledgement of the hotel’s dedication to hospitality and excellence. The Metropole Hotel Cork has a compelling heritage, having evolved from a sweet shop and “dry” hotel to a “hotspot of hospitality”.
