“Weekend break”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We stayed at this hotel whilst in Cork visiting family. The hotel was very central to all shops and restaurants. The hotel has its own pool and spa.

Our room was spacious, clean and very quiet. We had all mod cons, hair dryer, iron, tea making facilities, safe and lovely toiletries in the spacious bathroom. The staff were so lovely and helpful, and we were even given bottles of cold water on departure. We will definitely use this hotel again.

Stayed for a 'girlie' weekend, perfect location for night life and shopping. Easy parking, lovely staff, special mention for Aideen, from the beauty spa, a wonderful ambassador for the hotel. Loved the choice of resraurants. Found the air conditioned bedrooms to be pure bliss! We will definitely bd back.

Our company hosted a multi-day series of meetings in the conference area. The hotel staff were very accommodating and made last minute adjustments when we ran into glitches. The hotel itself was clean and the restaurants were excellent. In response to some of the US-based travelers - you are in Europe, so a few simple things will address your concerns. 1. If you like ice in your drinks, or washcloths in your rooms - ask for them. Also, ask for an extra room key and leave it in the master switch so the A/C will run while you aren't there to keep the room cool. EU hotels often have the A/C shut off automatically if you aren't there to save energy.

We stayed in the Clarion Hotel for one night in August. The hotel is modern, centrally located with good parking facilities and a nice leisure centre. We were also greeted warmly by the reception staff on arrival and the staff in the leisure centre could not have been friendlier. The big issue with this hotel and the rooms we stayed in was that our rooms faced into the lobby area and as a result you could not open the windows. Although it was not very warm while we were in Cork, the rooms got very stuffy at night and the air conditioning system was not the best. It really is such a shame that the hotel was built like this as I personally could not imagine staying in one of these rooms for longer than one night.

Room Tip: Try to get a room where you can open the windows - one facing out on the road.

Nice hotel and great location. Only minute walk to cork centre. Beds and pillows were very hard so uncomfortable nights sleep. Staff very nice and service great. Very much a business hotel not cozy at all. On the whole though I booked this hotel for the location so it was fine for our 3day trip

Dear LouiseA,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and providing us with feedback.

It is great to hear that you found our staff so friendly, and that we provided a great service. I have passed all your great comments back to the team, who were thrilled to receive.

I am disappointed that you found the beds hard and pillows uncomfortable, in which I would like to offer my sincere apologies. We do offer feather pillows on request which you may have preferred.

We value your feedback on the comfort of the rooms and will use it to fine tune our operations.
I do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the near future.

Warmest regards,


Valerie Forde

Nice Hotel with great food in the bar. Close to the bar and restaurant area in Cork and a quick taxi ride to most of the business areas. Plenty of parking in the underground car park. Free WiFi........

While on a 3 week vacation we stayed in Cork for 4 nights - far too long. The Clarion is pretty well located. The hotel and rooms have an overall sterile and impersonal feel but the front desk staff are quite friendly and welcoming. We had a 2-room suite on the 6th floor, and while again, rather sterile, it was quiet and had nearly everything we needed. The bed was firm but the pillows were granite. We asked for feather replacements but none were available. Housekeeping services were excellent. As is often the case there were no washcloths so if that is important to you, bring your own. All in all it was fine.

I would like to thank you for your feedback on the room facilities and I would like to offer my apologies for any inconvenience of no availability of feather pillows may have caused. In relation to the hand-towels, we do have a large supply of these available on request.

The comfort of our guests is very important to us and I would like to thank you for your feedback. I do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the near future.
