#CorkHarbour - A Tall Ship Hotel could be berthed on Cork's City quays before the end of October, serving food and drink and with luxury rooms for overnight stays.
According to the Evening Echo, a company which has planning permission to moor a floating hotel on Penrose Quay is planning to dock a smaller ship, the 55-metre Anna Marjorie, at the location while work continues on finalising the longer term plan for a larger vessel.
Sick & Sore Limited say they have had very constructive meetings with both the Port Of Cork and Cork City Council and the project now only requires sign off from the fire officer. They hope to get the nod in the coming weeks in order to get the ship, which is currently in the Netherlands, to Cork before the winter sets in.
“I must compliment the Port of Cork, they have been brilliant to deal with and so encouraging,” Sam Corbett said. “It is very refreshing to see how supportive the Port and City Council were.”
