We stayed here for one of the live at the Marquee gigs during the summer, couldnt praise the place enough everything from the slippers and robes to the little box of chocolates to the lovely view of the River Lee, a super comfy bed. All nice touches which ensured you were getting a great service. The location was brilliant.

Stayed here for three nights in November the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hotel is in the city center and everything is accessible by foot. The restaurant offers good portions and all meals we had were delicious.

Late review but better now than never! Rooms were big and clean. The breakfast spread was good. The hotel is in a good location - its near the bus station and you can walk into city centre within 5 mins!

The Clarion is in a perfect location. Good for business trip and city shopping. Rooms are basic but comfortable. I felt it lacked atmosphere, the personal touch and service. I would prefer when opening my curtains to have a better view than the lobby so curtains closed at all times for privacy. If you are travelling for a quick business... More

Dear EithneOC Many thanks for taking the time to submit your review. I am disappointed that you thought our rooms were basic as many rooms offer balconies , city views , espresso machines , a selection of teas , bottle water, fridges and not to mention free 300meg wifi.

I often stay at the Clarion, it's sometimes difficult to get a booking, the location is great, city centre is a short walk , staff are very helpful, they have a great cafe and Thai restaurant , breakfast is really good, parking is available and reasonable , rooms could do with an upgrade

Modern hotel which does the basics right. Great location and easy to get to from airport - central bus station a 3 minute walk (226,226a bus from airport). Also a short walk to Plunkett Street pubs and restaurants and the English Market. Comfortable beds and pillows. Great breakfast for only 12 Euros. Negatives - try and get a room away... More
