We attended the office party night at the Clarion recently and I have to say the staff were second to none, first of all there was so many of them and nothing was a problem. The two managers were on walkie talkies instructing kitchen and dining room staff and nothing was left to chance. Well done! Also I'm a coeliac... More

Stayed here for what we thought would be a relaxing weekend. First of all, bed was poor with cheap bedding. The bed was two smaller beds pushed together which is always annoying. Why do hotels think they can get away with that ? No natural air in the room. Very stuffy- window opens out to hotel main hall. Very little... More

Attended a meeting followed by lunch today at the Clarion and I was most impressed. Gluten free scones were provided at short notice at tea break with no fuss. Gluten free options were prepared for each course at lunch, it was a pleasure to have a meal there and I'll be back. Would recommend this hotel for their food, their... More

Having visited Dublin many times we decided to give cork a whirl and boy we were not disappointed. The people are so friendly and welcoming and it felt like there was a pub between every shop which when frequented greeted you with open arms and large smile. This hotel was well positioned for easy access to the town with restaurants... More

I stayed here during a recent business trip. It's in a very central location so close to the main attractions. The room was practical and clean and the staff were extremely friendly. The breakfast is typical hotel buffet, scrambled eggs, beans, hash browns, fruit, cereal etc. I found the hash browns to be overdone.
