We recently used the River Lee Hotel as a venue for our 100+ family reunion celebration. We found the venue perfectly located for access, the staff exceptionally helpful, the food excellent & the rooms very comfortable. As guests of the hotel outside the event we were very well cared for - not often completely pleased - this venue was exceptional.... More

This was our favorite hotel on our trip to Ireland. Most comfortable bed, air conditioning, and excellent water pressure in the shower. All our basics were met. Then, the room itself is beautiful, and the views overlooking the river were awesome! Absolutely request a room that over looks the river. The staff was so friendly we found ourselves chatting away... More

My friends and I stayed at the River Lee Hotel this summer for only one night. We arrived and were instantly impressed by the ambiance. Easy access to downtown nightlife (just a two block walk). We didn't get a chance to use the pool but we spent some time in the bar after hours. Michael was very attentive and fun... More

I stayed here for my first trip to Ireleand and I never felt so welcome at a new hotel. Every aspect of this hotel exceeded my expectation. The rooms made feel like I was back at home and the location to everything else was wonderful.
