10 minute walk from the city centre and all the shopping cork has to offer. Lovely staff. Complimentary water chilled in room. Excellent breakfast! Big rooms. Great bar. Would definitely stay here again.

We planned on staying 2 nights and stayed 4 ! Kevin and Nicole at the front desk were helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is the whole package-beautiful,clean, large comfortable rooms, great food and drinks. We really enjoyed the lively atmosphere of the hotel as did the other guests that visited the hotel.

Stayed in an executive room. Clean comfortable etc. but small for price. TV picture poor and changing channel was difficult. Executive lounge was nice, could be better. Breakfast OK (pancakes not made fresh!)

The hotel is in the perfect location to explore the city and easy walking distance. You can go anywhere in the city and be around the hotel. The Hotel is also close to the University which is perfect to walk around and see the architecture. I loved this city so much and the Staff at the hotel made sure I... More

The River Lee was the the nicest, most friendly, luxurious and comfortable hotel I've stayed in in Ireland. I was there because of a conference, but I'd choose to go back if I were in Cork again. Staff were so friendly throughout, particularly the bar staff when I arrived in late to get a bite to eat and Joe and... More

This hotel has it all...a great location, reasonable rates, and an excellent staff. We would definitely stay here again. This was our first visit to Cork and we could not have made a better choice for our hotel. Thank you for a wonderful time.

If you're looking for a modern, clean, comfortable space during a trip to Cork, then the River Lee Hotel would fit the bill. While it lacks the charm of a lot of boutique hotels in Ireland, it has a convenient location for exploring the city center in Cork. After driving from Dublin and exploring en route to Cork, we arrived... More

Stayed here on Sat Sept 27th, 2014 with my two sisters - it was brilliant. Hotel is really trendy and comfy. Somehow there was a mix-up in the booking, the hotel had us booked in Fri night but we understood we'd booked Sat night. The receptionist was great, first she volunteered to call other hotels in case we booked into... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights for our wedding anniversary in late Sept. The staff at reception were very friendly and very helpful. The hotel is very modern in all areas. The room was very clean and stylish and we had a lovely view of the river. The location is very convenient to Patrick Street... More

Hotel is ideally placed close to city center. This is a nice hotel and the staff were friendly and efficient. Rooms nice. Wi-Fi good. Parking good. Breakfast was excellent. However I had sea bass for diner in bar, but this was not good, felt and tasted like it was microwaved. Over all this is a good hotel.
