Looking for a couple's break? ‘Cosmos at The Castle’ Package is out of this world

Book us in immediately!

If you're looking for a couple's break away one Cork hotel is going above and beyond by offering romantic guests the moon, sun, and literally the stars with a new ‘out of this world’ break that combines luxury boutique accommodation with galactically great dining and a captivating cosmic experience at the Blackrock Castle Observatory.

The Imperial Hotel, Cork, is going to boldly going where no hotel has gone before,  with their  ‘Cosmos at the Castle’ package promises which will eclipse all expectations.

The adventure starts with two nights’ accommodation in a luxurious guest room, where you can gaze out at the city lights.

You’ll enjoy a gourmet breakfast each morning and will get starry eyed over dinner for two on an evening of your choice in the hotel’s sustainable restaurant Thyme at Seventy-Six on the Mall, which serves high quality local and seasonal produce.

Top off your night by making the best of the Imperial’s city centre location and exploring Cork’s vibrant streetscape by moonlight.

On a day of your choice, you will boldly make your way to the renowned Blackrock Castle Observatory to experience the ‘Cosmos at the Castle’ self-guided interactive exhibition.

If at any point in life you had ambitions of being an astronaut, now is your time to take one small step [or one giant leap] towards space exploration.


You’ll discover the formation of the Universe and how life developed on Earth, you can play a game where you virtually save the Earth, and discover the night sky in the amazing Planetarium.

To complete the stellar experience, visitors have the chance to wish upon an Irish Exoplanet and Star, named Bran and Tuireann from the ancient Irish fairy tale.

Just submit your wish on a postcard and Blackrock Castle will beam it directly to the star system from their transmitter at the Observatory.

On return to the hotel, snap a selfie with the ‘stars’ on the hotel’s wall of history which features famous past guests including Hollywood icons and royalty.

Finish with a refreshing Cosmo cocktail and take time out to revel in an extra special touch from the Imperial Hotel as guests booking this package will be gifted their very own named Binary Star from the official star registry.

A unique keepsake of a memory making stay or the perfect added touch for any special occasions and even proposals.

This package is from €231pp and is based on two adults sharing. If the sound of this all sends you into orbit email reservations@imperialhotelcork.ie or call 021-4274040.
