The Irish Times have teamed up with The River Lee to give one lucky subscriber the chance to win a stylish overnight stay in Cork city.

The River Lee, part of the family run Irish luxury hotel group The Doyle Collection, have just launched the second in the Curated Weekends in Cork series, that showcases the city through the eyes of some of the county’s most creative minds.

New York Times best-selling author Caroline O’Donoghue is the second Cork native to partner with the hotel. Her dreamy curated weekend leads guests on a literary exploration of the city, with the fabulous River Lee as her base.

Caroline’s guide encapsulates a dreamy weekend of strolling through the city - taking in a history tour at UCC (where Caroline’s latest novel, The Rachel Incident, is largely based), visiting the incredible Shandon Bells and some light perusing of some of the Cork’s most unique boutiques and shops. Of course, some literary glamour and indulgence is thrown in, with the recommendation of a glass of breakfast Riesling in the newly-opened Léa’s at The Glucksman and finishing Saturday night with champagne and oysters back at The Grill Room at The River Lee.

To celebrate the launch, The River Lee are giving a lucky subscriber the chance to win Caroline’s Taste of Nostalgia stay, which includes an overnight stay for two at The River Lee with afternoon tea and a cocktail at The River Club - Cork’s ultimate destination to eat, drink and be social.
