This is our 4th stay at The River Lee Hotel and we will be back again in August. Location is ideal, hotel is first rate and the staff is well trained, attentive to detail and very friendly. We couldn't ask for much more.

Probably one of the best terraces in Cork. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner. Great food and lovely music. Some days you can enjoy the company of a friendly sea lion in the river :) Highly recommended!

We were able to stay only one night on 7/18/16, but this short stay did not disappoint. The hotel is modern and very clean...and best of all...it was the only hotel in our 4 city, 10-day trip that had air conditioning!!! Rooms were spacious, views if the river from the 3 sided glass balcony were incredible!

First off, this hotel was the nicest by far that we stayed in any city in Ireland in terms of its central location, breakfast, view, and room quality. The elevators are glass and located on the perimeter of the most modern looking building in Cork and give you an amazing view of the city and the river. Once you get... More

Stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer, we had a room on the 5th floor so access to the executive Lounge which has been mentioned is well stocked and had good variety.

Driving into Cork the city didn't look very pretty. We finally found the hotel which was in a quieter part of town across from the river. At check in the staff were lovely and helpful (what you'd expect from a luxury hotel). We took the lift up to our floor and suddenly we saw a stunning city of Cork... Something... More
