Romance is real at The Oriel House

From the moment we stepped into the hotel, we were enveloped in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The check-in process was seamless, and the staff made us feel like VIPs right from the start.

We stayed in the Tobin Collection of rooms. Our room was nothing short of luxurious. The contemporary design, combined with cosy accents, created a great ambiance for a romantic getaway. The plush bedding, soft lighting, and thoughtful amenities exceeded our expectations.

One of the highlights of our stay was dining at the hotel's bar and bistro. The intimate setting, coupled with impeccable service, made our Valentine's Day dinner truly unforgettable.

We indulged in delicious cuisine, paired with exquisite wines. There were lots of other patrons indulging in cocktails also.

We feasted on steak and pizza and I truly feel that there is something on the menu for every food lover.

Exploring the lively town of Ballincollig was a delightful experience. We enjoyed wandering through the charming streets, popping into local shops, and soaking in the vibrant atmosphere. It was the perfect complement to our romantic retreat.

Back at the hotel, we savoured every moment of relaxation. Whether we were unwinding in the comfortable lounge area or enjoying a nightcap at the bar, every moment felt special and memorable.

When we checked in there was a pianist in the bar and later on in the evening, a singer after dinner that sang a great repertoire of songs.

In the morning, we were treated to a delicious breakfast at the, where we fueled up for another day of adventure. There is also a health and leisure centre should you feel like working out.

Overall, our romantic stay at the Oriel in Ballincollig exceeded our expectations. From the contemporary rooms to the lively atmosphere, it was the perfect destination for a Valentine's Day getaway.

We can't wait to return and create more cherished memories together. It would be a great way to spend an anniversary, birthday or milestone.

They always offer a great selection of packages to include dinner and you can go online to book.
