Just a couple of nights away and a very pleasant surprise. From check in to room and restaurants all were top class. The hotel is also close to Oliver Plunkett Street where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. For a bar the Oliver Plunkett is great and across the road the Market Place restaurant very good. My room had... More

Conveniently located close to the heart of Cork, on the river and a short walk to shopping district, loads of restaurants and pubs. Parking underneath and a couple of restaurants. Not 5 star but great value for money! Can also chalk the stay up to airline frequent flyer points ...

It's my second time staying at the Clarion and once again a lovely stay. Best hotel in terms of location within the city. Everything is within walking distance. The staff were very welcoming and friendly.

Another hotel that seems to place you in one of their less desirable rooms if you book through an agency. When will hotels learn to look after these business customers with a nice room. Had that happened I would use them every time I was in Cork. Room was grubby. What looked like food splashes crusted into bed cover and... More

Clarion never lets you down! Another lovely family break over new year. Rooms extremely comfortable. Food in lounge more than hit the spot. Staff extremely friendly. We had noisy neighbours next door on the first night which we reported to front of house next morning. Thankfully, they were leaving that day. But the Liaison Manager made it her business to...

I stayed in the Clarion after Chrtsimas 2014. I was here on leisure which was brilliant because of the hotels location. It is right in the heart of cork City centre, with plenty of shopping and restaurants near by. The clarion food is also gorgeous and couldn't get enough of the coffee! Very unique having a coffee shop in the... More
