Melissa Carton

We can’t think of a more romantic proposal venue.

This February you can spoil your loved one this Valentines with a romantic break to Cork’s grand dame of romance, The Imperial Hotel, which has been hosting first dates, engagements, weddings and honeymoons for more than 200 years.

The scene for your romantic weekend will be set as you arrive at their majestic lobby which will be festooned in giant red roses as part of a stunning ‘Cupid’ inspired flower art installation – the perfect insta spot to capture the start of a romantic weekend.

Not only that but this year the Imperial has put together a package that will help you create the perfect proposal.

The Imperial’s ‘All You Need is Love’ package includes a 2-night stay in a luxury room with a delicious birdcage breakfast, and you can choose one treat to go with it, whether your true love is food, romance, fashion or fun!

If all you need is love FOOD, choose dinner for two in Thyme at Seventy-Six on the Mall on a night of your choice.

If all you need is ROMANCE choose the romantic turndown on a night of your choice, which includes rose petals on your bed, a bottle of prosecco and chocolate dipped strawberries.

The package is priced from €194 per person sharing, and you’ll also have the option to add other treats or treatments at Escape Spa to your package to really wow your sweetheart.

As well as that The Imperial is pulling out all the stops when it comes to romantic gestures by providing the services of their very own Special Occasion Butler, James Gunter, to help grant guests every romantic wish for the weekend.

Whether you are planning the ultimate romantic date weekend, an anniversary celebration, or a surprise proposal, James will be on hand to provide local insights, advice, and unparalleled expertise.

James, who has been arranging romantic moments for 22 years, says that these packages needn’t be just for couples either;

“Why not pay homage to a friendship with your forever bestie, mum or work wife this Valentines because really all your need is …love… friends…family… and fun!”
