Hotel Isaacs, located on MacCurtain St in Cork’s Victorian Quarter, has just launched the first phase of 11 new fully-serviced apartments. The apartments are in the same complex as Greenes Restaurant and Cask cocktail bar.
Phase one comprises of six new apartments, a mix of two and three bedroom units that are available for short and long stay guests.
Each apartment features an open plan living space with a living room, dining room and a fully-integrated modern kitchen complete with Siemens appliances, dishwasher, washer-dryer, and coffee machine. All bathrooms are newly-fitted with underfloor heating and a walk-in shower. The three bed apartments include a master bedroom with a flatscreen TV and en-suite. The six new apartments offer free high-speed Wifi throughout and are fully climate controlled.
The guest can choose the level of room servicing they require and can arrange for shopping to be done so the fridge is fully stocked prior to arrival.
The eco-friendly apartments are a key part of the group’s five year plan to reduce its carbon footprint by 240 tonnes per year until 2021. The strategy encompasses various waste reduction policies as well as larger scale changes of hot water storage, heating, cooling and energy control.
Arthur Little, general manager of Hotel Isaacs, Greenes Restaurant and Cask, said: “We are delighted to launch these new apartments which are really going to enhance our entire offering. We’re proud of the many strategies we have implemented to become more environmentally friendly, including innovative steps such as utilising our beautiful courtyard waterfall feature as a cooling mechanism. These steps are not only eco-friendly, but create a clean and healthy indoor environment for our guests due to the apartment block’s complete air handling and heat recovery system.”
