Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods Country House Hotel, a Cork-owned business, has announced a major €1 million investment that is near completion.

The Fitzgerald family along with Michael Magner, who bought the hotel in 2006 and renamed it ‘The Vienna Woods Country House Hotel’, have lovingly and painstakingly restored much of the original protected features of the building over the years, and the Hotel recently underwent its most dramatic makeover to date.

All guest rooms and suites in the family-run 48-bedroom property are undergoing refurbishment. There is also significant investment in meeting spaces and technology to meet the hotel’s growing demand as a business destination for meetings, incentives, conferences and events.

The extensive renovations will give the property a fresh look, whilst also embracing the heritage and character of the historic 18th century house, The aim is to reposition the already thriving 4-star hotel as a deluxe country house, bringing a fresh offering to Cork’s ever- expanding needs as a travel and business destination. The country house will also appeal to those looking for an Ireland’s Ancient East Experience.

The transformation has been undertaken on a phased basis to minimise disruption to guests and is scheduled to conclude this month.

Michael Magner, Director at Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods Country House Hotel, said the investment is intended to position the hotel among Munster’s high-end service providers. ‘This significant investment will transform our product offering, enhancing all areas of our business to deliver an entirely new experience for our guests. This hotel has been re-designed with both the local and visitor market in mind, and we aim to offer an unrivalled guest experience. It sets a benchmark for the very high standards we have set across our hotel in terms of both the product and service we offer, which we hope will see valued guests return to Vienna Woods as their venue of choice again and again”.

The announcement of the refurbishment is not the only exciting event happening at the Vienna Woods. The hotel’s calendar of events is full to the brim for 2018 with more and more special events to be announced. (We will include this if you want to mention some of the activities planned for 2018).
