“Thank you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I was given a fantastic room. Room 539. Lots of nice touches here and there like chocolates in the room, a freestanding bath with loads of space in the bathroom. Very pleasant housekeeping staff! However please don't knock and wake me up at 9am on a Saturday. This did annoy me a little. Bar that little complaint, top class all around. Will definitely be staying here again. Oh.... And the food & service in the restaurant is the best I've ever had in Cork. Better than many 5 star hotels I've been in.

Stayed April 2014

Dear Frank O

Thank you for choosing to stay at Clarion Hotel during your recent visit to Cork and for spending time to write a wonderful review of our hotel.

I am delighted to hear that your enjoyed your experience with us. It is most gratifying to know that you were very impressed with your bedroom. Thank you for your very kind comments on our hotel, and indeed our housekeeping staff. We are lucky to have a very hardworking and dedicated team. My sincerest apologises for the early room knock, this has been already followed up with the housekeeping manager to ensure it doesn't reoccur.

I'd also like to thank you for your feedback on Oyster's restaurant, we are privileged to have the only dedicated fine-dine seafood restaurant in Cork. I will be sure to inform Donald and his head chef Alex, they will be thrilled to hear what a great impression they made and how that impacted on your impression of the Clarion Hotel.

It would be an honour to welcome you back, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Warm Regards,
Darragh Brady

I had my hen party in the penthouse on saturday 29th of march and i have to say WOW!! There was a group of 36 of us with 22 staying in the hotel, we started with a cocktail class which i must say, our group was probably too large for but the staff did their utmost to keep us entertained! Cocktails wers fab & plentiful!! We were then served up buffet style mains & desert which were delicious and there was plenty of to go around, the female host (didnt catch her name) looked after the bar and was so friendly, nothing was too much to ask of her lovely lovey girl. Staff blended in so well and really looked after us! We were able to plug an i pod in which connected to their sound system which allowed our own music to play out, our party started at 6ish and finished up at 11.30 where we hit a local night club for some dancing, my bridesmaid and i chose to stay in the penthouse that night, all of our guests were accomodated on the same floor at the top of the hotel so all in close proximity and as not to cause disturbance to other guests. It worked out perfectly and i would highly reccomend this for something different for anyone considering a party here. Top class!

It's a delight to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your family reunion with us in the Clarion Hotel. Thank you very much for your very kind words about our guest bedrooms, dinner and the central location of the hotel. I do apologise about the breakfast, our head chef Tommy and his team have since been monitoring the temperature of the hot buffet breakfast to ensure this doesn't reoccur.

It would be a pleasure of ours to welcome you back to Cork City in the near future. Be sure to check our website for upcoming special offers

We are just back from 2 nights in The Clarion Hotel Cork and I would highly recommend it! There were 22 of us in the group and the hotel location, staff, amenities, room comfort and food made the weekend even more enjoyable! Special mention to Claire on reception as she went out of her way to help when one of the group left something behind and only realised after she had departed. This is a hotel which offers it all.
