My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights a few weeks ago, our second stay at The RIver Lee and we had the most relaxing break away ever, which is what we really needed !

I travel quite a bit to Cork on business and this has become my favourite hotel there. The room is spacious and modern, with a lovely comfortable bed and nice bed linens. Get a room facing the river; there is a pretty view of the hills. Breakfast is very good and well-stocked with every breakfast item you might want, and... More

My daughter went to Cork University to do a masters degree which meant my wife and I travelled there a few times over the last year or so. We have always stayed at the River Lee and it has consistently provided really good service, the rooms are a good size with comfortable beds and great showers. The food is also... More

I have been to this hotel for many many years and this is still my favourite destination in cork. Spacious and modern rooms. All facilities you can want. Great bad with good service.

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

I stayed in the River Lee Hotel in November 2014 with my fiancé. Our room was beautifully decorated, inviting and warm. The bed was extremely comfortable and very sumptuous, there was a rain-forest style shower head which made our showers literally the best we've ever had. We also had a nespresso machine for making delicious coffee and a mini fridge... 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
