The room was at the back of the hotel so no floodlit magnificent City Hall vista for us , we were overlooking the homeless shelter \ hostel which was obviously full as there were people sleeping on the street . It was a distressing spectacle, .... More

Stayed for 6 nights in this hotel on a business trip. Rooms are very good, modern, new, but if you like fresh air you need to ask for it otherwise you get a room without outside window. The staff is friendly and keen to help. Meetingrooms we used were great: frontal view of the river.

The Clarion is a nice hotel in a location in easy walking distance of Oliver Plunkett Street, St. Patrick's and the English Market. It's about 15 minutes walking distance from the iconic St. Fin Barre cathedral. The decor is nice and about my only complaint is the uncomfortable bed. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Parking under the hotel.

Unfortunately hotel did... More
