We were a large group of 32 girls, I must say the customer service from the moment we checked in was fantastic, did not feel like we were in a large group, the staff managed it with great ease. The hotel was spotless, the decor of the hotel throughout is very warm and inviting, the rooms were perfect size, the staff were all amazing, they really made our stay so enjoyable. We managed to get a room just outside the lift door, which was super convenient. The breakfast the next morning was delicious, with a great selection to choose from, I made sure I made it down early to avoid the rush and get a paper to read. I most definitely will be recommending this to anyone wishing to spend a night in Cork and above all we will be back, this time for a romantic break though.

Room Tip: 101-103 right across from the lift on 1st level-super handy

I stayed at the Clarion Hotel Cork for one night on a romantic weekend away.

Upon arrival, I found myself in a valley of smiles. The staff were really friendly, polite and helpful. Everything ran smoothly, from parking to checking-in, to finding our room. The atmosphere is immediately relaxing and calming. There was even a hand masseuse available at reception!

Entering the room, it was clean and quiet. Couldn’t hear a pin drop! The bathroom was the size of my house, and the bedroom the size of my estate! All the essential paraphernalia available. The shower was heaven – I didn’t think I’d ever climb out. The bed was so comfortable and chocolates on the pillows – a lovely touch!

The view from the window overlooked the River Lee and Cork’s light-up methropolitan skyline. Dinner served in the restaurant is highly recommended - Asian style and very tasty. The best clubs and pubs in Cork are only around the corner, yet far enough away to not be a disturbance if looking for peace and quiet.

The room offers a widescreen TV with multiple channel choices from news to sport, drama or music and free internet access. You can pretty much stay in the room all day without getting bored. I however, availed of the free gym and pool facilities and managed to wind down in the luxurious bubbles of the jacuzzi for a while.

These are the things that made my stay at the Clarion so enjoyable, but my warmest congratulations go out to the hotel for their choice of personnel. They know how to really make you feel at home, and if you need anything it is like asking a family member! 5 stars! Fantastic! And I will be back!!

I stayed here for the first time while going to a show in the marquee and couldn't fault it. The customer service was second to none, there was a complimentary bus for guests to and from the marquee which was fantastic. The hotel itself was spotless and very impressive, we had room service breakfast which was thoroughly enjoyable and upon checkout we were offered free bottled water. When I visit Cork again I will definitely be staying there again.

Stayed over on Saturday night for a function with the other half. Great room at reasonable rate for city centre.

Staff were very helpful and overall could not fault the place.

Usual dinner dance meal but again staff were excellent and attentive so no issues.

A handy spot for visiting the great city and I would come back.
