4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed in this hotel overnight on a number of occasions. I have also eaten at the Weir Bar several times. Service was excellent, especially Aoife C and Séan. Very friendly staff overall and eager to help in any way. Delicious food by Shane. Very close to the city. Ideal for a day out shopping! I highly recommend!

Just spent one night in this hotel while shopping in the city. The hotel itself is beautiful inside very modern and the staff are extremely helpful. Our room was lovely overlooking the river. Out of all the hotels I have ever visited this is by far my favourite.

My wife and I stayed here on and off throughout the autumn while renovations were being done on our house. I am fussy and I could not find one fault with this hotel.

My daughters and I had dinner in the Weir bar this evening. The food here is excellent, it is very well presented and delicious. The staff are very friendly and professional. We enjoyed the burger, fish and chips and the fillet steak cooked to perfection. Chocolate cake, light as a feather, and chocolate icecream finished off a very good dining... More

I was attending a workshop at University College Cork so the River Lee Hotel was an ideal choice as it was very close to the university campus. Parking was easy. Reception staff were very friendly. The room was excellent with a great view of the river and traffic on the Western Road. I had an excellent meal in the bar... More
