I stayed here for almost two weeks. Rooms were very spacious with modern amenities and kept in tip top shape. Staff at the reception area were very well trained. Internet was adequate. Location is perfect, nice view of the River Lee and about a 5min walk to/from everywhere. The downstairs lounge area is very comfortable, I spent a lot time... More

stayed with my family which includes 2 young kids for 3 nights . We had an excellent stay, the family room was big enough for all 4 of us and the staff were probably the nicest i've dealt with in a while. They accommodated us with our toddler without any hassle.The breakfast was great and there was a lively buzz... More

We (2 adults and 2 children) had such a wonderful and relaxing experience in the Clarion Hotel. It is such a good location, right on the quays which allows for a pleasant wander around Cork City and walking distance to a great choice of shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel itself was the highlight. We stayed in a family room... More

I stayed for a few days in clarion due to a urgent business trip. One of the reasons I choose clarion was the location and the staff resposivness when I booked. We were getting in the morning and they storred our luggage until we left to eat. The hotel is quite crowded, so usually will be a lot of people... More

Hotel very good. Disturbed by noise of downstairs bar/gym. Didn't like Father Christmas being in lobby August! Staff didn't either. Reception and waiting staff all vg, but surprised they seemed all Eastern European and missed a local accent.
