Given this was my first stay in Ireland, I wasn't sure what to expect-- but I was pleasantly surprised. Ultra clean, ultra-friendly staff, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, just a first-class experience all the way around. The hotel has a great breakfast restaurant and bar with a nice selection of Jameson Whiskey. Wifi worked great. The staff at the front desk... More

Room overlooking river was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious with a large choice of items. Great to have on site parking and nice buzzy atmosphere in what is obviously a very popular hotel. I didn't use the pool or steam room but my sister did and she thought the facilities were... More

I stayed at the River Lee Hotel in February. I had a last minute business trip with work so I had no time to book in advance. I rocked up to reception looking for a room and they were very helpful. They only had a triple room available so as I would be staying in a single rather than a... More

We stayed 3 nights and it was very relaxing, exactly what we needed. The room was looking over the river. The beds were very comfortable and the room was tidied every day. The room was a little warm, but the air conditioning was just set too high. The staff were all exceptional. Little touches make a huge difference, and the... More

Stayed for just one night and will definitely be back!! From the minute we arrived we were treated royally, the reception staff were as you would expect from staff in a five star hotel, courteous and professional. Our room was beautiful with lovely views of the river. Once we had chilled we went to reception to enquire about local restaurants,... More

We only stayed 1 night at the River Lee Hotel. The room was clean, modern and spacious. There were 3 adults and we had plenty of room. We had a very nice view on the river side and a pretty view to the mountains. The hotel was in a great location, very near downtown (walking distance), but conveniently on the... More

Amazing view of Cork! It's about a five minute walk to the English market but you never have to leave the room. The room service staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay again! The most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in.
