Brilliant location, the room we were in overlooked the River Lee so had some great views. Room size was great and beds were really comfy, nice and clean - room had everything you needed. I was a bit concerned about potential noise during the early hours as the hotel was full and there seemed to be a few hen parties... More

I have just returned from a hen party at the clarion hotel. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. The service was top notch, the rooms were really clean, the food was beautiful, and the breakfast was outstanding!! There is a lot of choice for breakfast and it caters for so many. The only downfall is the hotel car park... More

Simply great location! Within walking distance in a matter of minutes of all city center bars & restaurants. The hotel itself is very modern, rooms in the center of the hotel don't have a view, that didn't bother us but check with reception where your view is. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean, with air conditioning. The only downside to... More

I, like many other people I suspect, tend to avoid eating in hotels whenever possible — preferring to dine out in a decent local restaurant. When I do eat in hotels, it's usually for one of two reasons: 1. I've arrived late and or the weather outside is so bad that I choose to dine in the hotel for the... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in the Clarion for a few days over the Christmas and I have to say it was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The staff were so warm and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel itself is spotless and beautiful and our room was excellent. We're going to book again for... More

I travel to Cork on business twice a year and I need to search for a new hotel option as the quality of the Clarion continues to deteriorate. The throw pillows and bed covers are stained and disgusting, there was soap and hair from the previous guest left in my bathroom, the walls are thin, breakfast is gross, and there... More

Stayed for 4 nights. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff and service was excellent. Breakfast buffet was very good. This hotel is close to the city center so is very easy to move around. Uses a public parking below the hotel (special rate for guests)

We arrived by car and parked in the underground car park under the hotel. There is a single lane down into the car park and it is also the exit so can be tricky. Once in the car park follow signs to the hotel car park and take a ticket at the barrier. Parking was €12 until mid day the... More

Myself & my gf arrived here on the Friday the 15th for two nights. When checking in, we had to pay for parking (we stayed last year and don't think it was as expensive that time).
