Stayed for 4 nights. Excellent service, very clean and quiet. Two minute walk to bus station and 5 minute walk to city center. Had turn down service complete with chocolate daily as well as bottled water. Upon check out was given bottled water to take on journey. Would definitely stay again.

Everything was just great. Friendly welcome from the staff in the reception, they gave us a map when we asked for it and showed us where the main sights to see were located and where most pubs and are located. Will stay here again if we visit Cork another time.

i stayed at this Hotel with friends, the staff are so helpful and friendly the entrance to the Hotel is welcoming and there is a great buzz around the place. The rooms are bright clean and tidy. The only negative I found was that the breakfast was not included and they charged 14euros for it with a discount for guests... More

It has a great waterside location and is only 5 mins at a slow walk away from the shops. Breakfast was lovely with a varied selection to suit everyone. Bar prices are average for a... More

When we booked in upon arriving to our room we discovered we had been upgraded... More

We stayed one night on the way to Killarney and had a great time. Everything very good, access, location, staff, service, amenities, comfort and food. Will come back and will definitely recommend. Worth asking for a room at the upper floors to enjoy the nice views of the city skyline.

I have been staying at the Clarion for years for business trips. Although the hotel itself is nice enough and the location is good, it is the people at the Clarion that make this hotel stand out. I have consistently found the staff at the Clarion to be the friendliest and warmest group of hotel employees I have ever come... More

My choir participated in the Cork Choral festival at the start of May and we made a block booking at the Clarion because it was close to the venue we would be singing at. It's difficult to organise a group booking of over 40 people but the Clarion made it all very straight forward and dealt with the multiple changes... More
