The breakfast is good and the staff friendly and helpful. The family room is a good size and easily accommodated a family of 4. Parking was charged at... More

The Clarion had a good offer and they had suitable times available so off we went. The treatments here are amazing, we both had the head neck and shoulder massage along with a... More

All the staff were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We checked in early, but the fact that we were early was not even mentioned. We went straight to our spacious, well equipped room. Everything worked well. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent and so was dinner in the same restaurant, which was transformed into a dinner restaurant, complete... More

I could not have enjoyed my 3-week stay in Cork, Ireland, as much were it not for the Clarion Hotel. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated, clean, with super comfortable beds and QUIET. Another plus is that I had total control of the A/C which meant the room stayed cool all night without cutting off in the middle of the... More

I stayed here for one night on a tour and it was one of my favourite stays. The room was large and neat with an excellent view of the river.
