My wife and I spent our 30th wedding anniversary in Cork staying at The River Lee Hotel. It was our first visit to the area and it was a most enjoyable experience in every way. Check in and check out was exceptionally smooth. The room, like every corner of the hotel was spotless and modernly comfortable. We've been fortunate enough... More

Our touring group of 45 stayed here 2 nights. Our room was very large and comfy with everything we needed. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with many choices. Our group dinner was incredible with a choice from a set menu. A short walk across the river took you into town or to the nearby university grounds.... More

I was upgraded to the Executive level upon arrival with no change in price. LOVELY, big room with all amenities, including personal expresso maker, robes, and lovely linens. Bed was great, no complaints. If you stay here and to not eat in the restaurant, you are cheating yourself out of a nice experience.

We stayed at the River Lee after taking the Red Eye from Boston. The staff helped us check in early, set up reservations at the spectacular Cafe Paradiso down the street, and made us feel very welcome. The hotel is modern without stuffiness.

I have stayed in most Cork city hotels in the last 6 months. I honestly cannot fault the River Lee hotel. Spacious car parking, friendly personal greeting at check in, clean... More

The food in the Weir restaurant was lovely and the whole ambience in the hotel was fab! Every member of staff we came across was very helpful, pleasant and always had time to chat. It is just 5 mins walking... More

I stayed in Cork for 2 nights last week on business. I picked this hotel based on the reviews on TripAdvisor and I wasn't disappointed. The location was spot on, the staff were really friendly yet professional. I really enjoyed the breakfast choice, which had plenty of healthy options which I sampled on day 1 and even more tempting treats... More
