- The opening of The Kingsley Hotel enhances the options available for visitors to Cork.
- 130 jobs created at the hotel are a great boost for the local economy.
It is great to see The Kingsley Hotel once again open for business. The hotel will add to the high quality hotels available across Cork and will further enhance the options available for all of those visiting our city.
Since the hotel was forced to close in 2009 it has continued to be a stark reminder of the devastating impacts the floods had. But now that the hotel is open again, it is a signal of the increased strength of the Cork economy and of the tourism potential of the region.
As well as offering an excellent service for business and leisure customers the hotel is providing much needed employment. The 130 jobs created by the hotel will be great boost to the local economy and all of those who have secured work at the hotel. I wish all of the management and staff every success in re-establishing the hotel as a premier destination in Cork.
