A Few Words From Our Corporates

AV Pound & Co Limited - December 2019

“I’d like to say that everyone in our party had a really good night, I’ve had loads of positive feedback on it.  This was the first time we’ve gone to a party night for our Christmas get together, so I am delighted with the results.” 

Val McDonald, AV Pound & Co Limited


Cork Astronomy Club - December 2019

“On behalf of the Cork Astronomy Club and from myself personally, I would like to express our highest appreciation and gratitude to the Ambassador Hotel management, to yourself and the event organising team and also to everyone that made our Christmas party a very successful event!  

From the little details (customised menu, colourful lighting, support with setting up our own music) to the atmosphere, food, warmth and professionalism that they fulfilled all our requests, everything made all the participants feel spoiled and raised the bar to the parties they were used to! plus we came to you with a lot of requests and Ambassador event team and management has always been very professional and understanding !  And - as a result - the party was FANTASTIC! (These are not my words, a lot of the members expressed them on the club WhatsApp group) 

Once again, thank you for all your efforts and looking forward to another party in this lovely restaurant,”

Carmen, Cork Astronomy Club 


FCM Travel: October 2017

“We had a lovely night’s stay at the Ambassador.  We arrived in the afternoon and had enough time for stroll into the city which was only about 10-15 minutes’ walk and especially nice on the way in as downhill but I think a very acceptable distance. 

Our evening meal in McGettigan’s was excellent, they were super busy but still looked after us really well.  Breakfast was also very nice. 

Thanks so much again, we really thought the hotel was lovely…I especially loved Reception and the décor there.”

Advantage Group DMC: August 2017

“I decided to try this hotel for a quick, one night stay while I was in Cork for the weekend. The place was spotless, and you could feel the history of the building. While I didn't spend too much time in the hotel, other than sleeping and having breakfast, it left a great impression on me. The service at the breakfast in the morning was quick and with a wide variety of food in the buffet. Being an event organiser myself, I am used to work with hotels and I am quite demanding on the service I expect to receive, however I am happy to say that The Ambassador exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it”.

BCD Travel August 2017

“The room was out of this world and the decor of the hotel was amazing, we really loved it and really appreciated everything that was extended to us. I will have no problem selling the Ambassador Hotel on every aspect as I couldn’t fault anything. BCD travel would highly recommend The Ambassador hotel to all of our corporate as it meets all needs…”

Pricewaterhouse Coopers  June 2017

“We had a fantastic stay at the Ambassador Hotel. From the minute we arrived, the staff were super-efficient and friendly. Our room was fabulous with all of the corporate amenities you would need as was our evening meal in McGettigan’s Cookhouse & Bar. I would highly recommend the Ambassador Hotel for visiting Cork City for both business and leisure.”

True Temper Ltd - March 2017

“Personally, I have been to Mc Gettigan’s a few times and think it’s absolutely fabulous.

The last time I was there with a group was for lunch on New Year’s Eve – there were 8 of us and every one of us loved the food, the atmosphere and the staff were just incredible.

I have also been for evening meal which was simply gorgeous! I would also highly recommend the Afternoon Tea – what an experience!

Everything is truly fabulous, from the moment you arrive in Mc Gettigan’s the service you receive is so friendly and inviting.

I must say – Mc Gettigan’s is one of my favourite spots!”

Corporate Guest, Christmas Lunch, December 2016

I want to thank you so much for the help and support you provided me. Everything was brilliant and the staff were nice to us. We had our table optimally located and the food was great. All my colleagues who were there loved it. 

Please pass a huge thanks to the staff. I wish you all a merry Xmas to you and your families.

Marriott Hotel Group  Christmas Party 3/12/16 - Thank you!

The second year in a row now we’ve held our annual Christmas dinner at the Ambassador Hotel and I can’t thank Aoife and her team enough, as both nights were a success. The hotel is a beautiful location and worked really well for us and the staff have always made us feel very welcome.

We recently held our Company Summer BBQ in the Hotel. We found the Ambassador Hotel to be the perfect venue for our event as the hotel helped to cater for everybody. There was the outdoor area for the BBQ , the ambience of the  decking area led to a beautiful evenings dining.  The main bar and a side bar for anybody who wanted to have a break from the hustle bustle and rest their feet before heading up to the beautiful function room to dance the night away. Management and staff of The Ambassador Hotel were truly exceptional in their attendance and attention to our every need. An ideal venue both in its location and service from start to finish. A special mention to Aoife for all her assistance. Overall a high class hotel for service and attention, thank you very much.

I have been a corporate guest with The Ambassador Hotel for some years. It’s so so lovely to arrive and be greeted by Alexandra, April, Martha, Gillian or one of the other members of the reception staff. The Ambassador Hotel is ideally located in Cork city, as you are only a few minutes from the city centre yet, there is no traffic noise and the city views are truly beautiful especially at night. Mc Gettigan’s bar is a fabulous addition to the hotel and the food is consistently good and the professionalism, friendly staff in all areas really do make your stay pleasurable ,and in my opinion the robes, slippers and complimentary chocolates really make the relaxation factor an added bonus.    Well done to all at The Ambassador Hotel. You have all made your hotel a must for myself, my family and for all our corporate bookings. Looking forward to staying again soon.

Just a quick note to thank you so much for inviting us along to the BBQ last Friday – it was really enjoyable, the food, the musicians, the magician and all the spot prizes we won, we had so much fun. Best of luck with your newly refurbished hotel, I’m sure you will attract lots of new business to the St Luke’s area and the Ambassador Hotel will grow from strength to strength.
