Booked 2 nights, work related travelling solo. Shown to room (which turned out to be an apartment) by receptionist personally, she also got a map for me so that I could find my way around the city by car. Ate in the bar each night, lovely food, good choice and very friendly staff. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Apartment was... More

Hire a conference room here for a day, very good value, rooms were good size, bar facilities were able to cope easily with our 50 people and they laid on tea coffee and biscuits for €150 during our training sessions. Great city location, entire hotel seems modern, clean and comfortable and while I didn't stay the night I was told... More

A really pleasant place to stay near to the centre of Cork! It is an easy walk from here to the numerous bars & restaurants in Cork city centre, but with a great-out look over the boardwalk & quay to the river. The hotel is good, but the experience was enhanced by the extremely friendly & helpful staff. I would... More

Good sized bed and room. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful, from the smiling room maids to the bar staff who gave good advice on Irish whiskeys. Breakfast was of good quality and plenty of choice.

Stayed in the Clarion last weekend. Despite being a very busy weekend, we could not have been made feel more welcome by the extremely helpful & friendly staff. The hotel itself is extremely clean, with a modern feel, & is an ideal location for your stay in Cork. We ate in the hotel restaurant & the food was faultless. Great... More

Enjoyed our night in the Clarion. Rooms were lovely and hotel had lovely clean modern feel. We ate in the bar which was nice but quite crowded and noisy so we moved to the lobby for our drinks, which was perfect. The only negative I have was that the breakfast room was full so we had to eat on low... More

We stayed in the Clarion hotel for my sister's hen party in June. Despite being a 20-something group of hyper girls we felt very much welcomed at the Clarion. Anne marie managed our booking and nothing was a bother to her, suggesting activities, rearranging rooms, early checkin. Certainly knowing the hotel had everything sorted took away some of the stress... More

I was part of a fleet of yachts from The Royal Cork Yacht Club at The City Marina on Saturday 13th September. We had seventy people on board and we all dined in the board room of the Clarion Hotel. I could not praise enough the service we received. The room was magnificent, the food was beautiful, and the service... More

Stayed here for a week on business. Really nice hotel, great location. 5 minute walk to load of bars and restaurants. Having said that the bar has equally good food and great breakfast. Very professional all round. Parking is in an underground car park and your charged 9 euro for over night. You also get a bottle of water on... More
