Beautiful modern hotel a few minutes' walk from Cork's charming city center. Generous windows let in light and color throughout the property. Staff was friendly. Excellent value, too. Good breakfast, and a little babbling brook outside the dining room made this hotel almost too idyllic to be true.

This hotel was very nice and I have no complaints. They gave us a nice river view which we requested. I didn't use the restaurant - there are many options for eating in very close walking distance to the hotel. Beds were comfortable and it was a quiet stay. There is a safe but no refrigerator in room. Truth, Cork... More

Staying in The River Lee Hotel was one of the most pleasant experiences I've had for quite some time. From the time we met Kevin at the front desk to the time we checked out we couldn't have been looked after better. Within minutes of arrival we had been checked in, a dinner reservation in the hotel and a taxi... More

My parents and I stayed for 3 nights and it was a delight from beginning to end. Wonderful, friendly and efficient staff and the hotel tries to make you feel like a home to home visit. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent place to stay while on business. Free shuttle to work, close to pubs and restaurants, nice views. The bar and restaurant at the hotel are good too. The best place I've stayed in Cork.

We stayed in this hotel in mid-July occupying interconnecting rooms as we travelled with two teenage children. The larger room was spectacular with great views over the river. It was very comfortable and spacious and the kids loved having their own space. When we arrived at about 3.30 pm, the rooms were not ready and the lovely girl on reception... More

Dined in the Restaurant recently with my family and the meal was really top class. My husband is coeliac and the waiter (I think his name was Jaques) was completely knowledgeable on his dietary requirements and provided us with 5 Star service throughout our meal. The hotels location is wonderful and the ambience is relaxing and easy going. I will... More

When in Ireland I usually head for the quaint, family run B and B's but I was here for work and was booked into this hotel. It was absolutely fantastic! The views from the large picture windows on each floor, and from the rooms if you are lucky enough to be on the river side, are incredible. The contrast between... More

The Hotel to stay in in Cork! Very friendly and competent staff in all areas. Such a magnificent view and a charming surrounding at the River Lee. Excellent meals and the fridge in the room is an extra plus. Cosy beds and short walking distances to downtown Cork are the last steps to the top.
