About our Location

THE LEE BATHS, 1934-1986

The Kingsley is located in an area steeped in local history, with stunning views of the passing River Lee and nearby walkway. The Lee Baths, operational from 1934 until 1986, were popular open air swimming pools that provided much entertainment and leisure for the citizens of Cork. The steps to the old baths are just a short distance from the site of The Kingsley, a wonderful historical connection which we have honoured throughout the hotel. 


The Kingsley is strategically located by UCC, one of Europe's most esteemed universities. Home to beautiful works of art, stunning architecture and well-cultivated gardens, University College Cork is a must-see for anyone visiting the city. The Deane-Woodward Suite at The Kingsley has been named in honour of Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward, two Cork based architects who designed the beautiful Main Quadrangle building, among others. Mary Ryan, UCC's first female professor, is also honoured in the hotel's Ryan Suite.


Built in 1968, Cork's County Hall is located just across from The Kingsley and is the hub of Cork's civil services.
