River Cruise Ship To Become Floating Hotel In Ireland

My Story (Select Voyages)

A former river cruise ship could be transformed into a floating hotel and restaurant in the city centre of Cork in Ireland.

The 105-metre, four-star hotel, would have 87 rooms, and also offer a lounge and sun deck. An established local restauranteur would operate the restaurant, primarily serving hotel guests, but the public could also dine for lunch or dinner.

The former My Story, which was previously operated by Select Voyages along the Rhine, and chartered out to various European tour operators, would be permanently moored on the River Lee, adjacent to Michael Collins Bridge at Penrose Quay – just a short walk from Cork city centre and Cork Kent train station.
