Outdoor Dining

at the Imperial Hotel...

The much-anticipated re-opening of outdoor dining has arrived, and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Grand Dame of Cork.

Being part of Ireland’s foodie capital there are many options for you to choose from. Whether it’s a morning coffee and pastry at Lafayette’s or sharing platters and cocktails at Thyme @76 on the Mall every experience is underpinned with impeccable service.

Tables will only be given on a walk-in basis, we are not accepting bookings at this time. 



Stop for a coffee from Lafayette’s on South Mall, serving every day 8am -  5pm, weekends 12pm - 4pm.  Relax on our parklet while enjoying a delicious bagel or salad or indulge in one of our delicious pastries. Please note that opening hours may vary.
