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.

Stayed here for a few nights whilst attending some gigs in Cork, hotel is lovely and in a great spot, the reception area is big it feels like you are entering an office block as opposed to a hotel, but still more spaces for sitting and waiting etc. I would recommend this hotel at the right price.

We're traveling around Ireland and selected the Clarion Hotel, Cork to stay for one night on our way to Dublin. The receptionist was charming, friendly and helpful, the big room with a comfy king bed and great pillows was just what the doctor ordered for a wonderful nights sleep, the fantastic wi-fi signal was exceptionally strong in the room and...

We stayed here with our twin daughters who are 6 and had a lovely couple of days.

The hotel itself is spacious, modern and clean and our family room was quite... More

We enjoyed our two night stay. We had a room on the first floor, directly above the bar, right on the balcony to the atrium and we found there was some noise at night. It didn't bother us too much and another room may have had less noise. The room was spacious, and comfortable. The shower pressure was quite weak... More
