Hayfield Manor
College Road, Perrott Avenue


In the university district of Cork city, up a short road leading to a grand driveway lies Hayfield Manor Hotel. You wouldn't believe how tucked away this five star luxury accommodation is, considering it's central location. Although this part of Cork is well populated with a mix of permanent residents and UCC students, the hotel is in its own grounds and has all the peace and quiet of the country.  Many famous guests have stayed here. Anybody who's anybody has strolled through its doors. Everyone can feel like a superstar - the service is the same for the famous names as it is for the ordinary Joe - simply top class. And what's really lovely is that despite it's five star status, you just don't feel awkward or out of place. There are no airs of pretension or snootiness in the ambiance. From the moment you walk into the generous lobby with its sweeping staircase, you'll feel very welcome indeed.

Owners Joe and Margaret Scally, experienced hoteliers, have made sure of that.   Rooms are fully equipped in grand style, from the opulent drapes at the windows, king sized beds and comfy armchairs, to the fluffy robes and slippers in the bathrooms, which come complete with traditional and roomy roll top baths and Elemis toiletries. Everything you need is to hand, and there's always a welcome pack in your room, which includes water, cognac, fresh fruit and sensuous chocolate truffles in case you get the munchies in the night! Not much chance of that though, if you are dining in one of the two fabulous restaurants in house. 

Perrott's is a conservatory restaurant with garden views, and a casual dining menu. The atmosphere makes for a relaxed experience. Overlooking the rear walled garden is Orchids restaurant, an altogether more formal dining space.  Fine dining service, with elegant silver cloches placed over all mains and elegantly removed by the waiters at the table. Glam feasting in the old school style, befitting a five star hotel restaurant. Underneath those cloches is a thoroughly modern offering, from a wealth of Cork fresh meats, fish and artisan specialties. Executive Head Chef Mark Staples is embracing Cork produce and dealing with it in a dynamic and innovative way.

It doesn't just stop with good food, and elegant bedrooms at Hayfield. Oh no. The fun is only starting when you check in. This hotel has a luxurious spa and lovely gardens to have tea if the weather is good.  There's music in the bar too, provided by a mobile piano which is wheeled in as and when.  However long you choose to stay here, your time will be peppered with a true Irish welcome, from the minute you are greeted at the front door to the moment the bellboy takes your bags to the car. It won't be easy to leave, but you know you can always come back!

  • Good Food Ireland | Artisan | Tom Durcan Meats

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
