The Imperial Hotel Cork’s romantic ‘Cosmos at the Castle’ package allows you and your loved one to escape and relax under the stars this autumn. The couple’s package includes a two night stay, entry to Blackrock Castle Observatory, dinner in the sustainable restaurant Thyme, a Cosmo cocktail, and even the opportunity to name your own star.
From €231pps, this deal offers a luxurious guest room, where you can gaze out at the city lights. You’ll enjoy a gourmet breakfast each morning and dinner for two on an evening of your choice in 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 make your way to the renowned Blackrock Castle Observatory to experience the ‘Cosmos at the Castle’ self-guided interactive exhibition. You’ll learn about the formation of the Universe and how life developed on Earth and discover the night sky in the 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.
