Based on reviews and recommendations, I was looking forward to my stay at the Clarion. The hotel is excellently located right in the middle of Cork. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Staff were always very nice and helpful. However, I'm giving the hotel a 3 as I was woken up every night by road works or late night... More

We stayed at the hotel over a weekend with friends and had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The rooms were large (we had a disabled room although we are not disabled!) and very well appointed. The dark curtains made the room very dark and made for a great nights sleep. Breakfast (pre-paid at check-in is advisable) was very good... More

This hotel is very good, the restaurant was fantastic with super quality Asian food. The bar staff were fantastic and in particular Calum who was very engaging and professional. Kasia serving bar food was great too and went out of her way to give directions and made me feel welcome.

Our room was extremely clean, and comfortable with a great balcony view... We ordered room service and there was a slight mixup in our... More
