Myself and a few of the girls went to stay in the Clarion last weekend, we had a super time. The hotel is lovely, very central (only5minutes walk into Patrick St for the shops) The rooms are nice with comfy beds & nice duvets, there was generous beauty products in the bathrooms which was a nice touch!
All of the staff are very friendly & efficient, from the moment we checked in they were very professional & constantly made little chats with us, reception were very helpful in looking up numbers for me as I had to arrange our evening outing in Cork city, i found the whole thing stress free & felt very well looked after.
Breakfast was delicious, lots of nice food choices & plenty of seating even at the busiest times they also use the lobby so everyone gets looked after! Our friends have small kids & will definately be back again, even though we didnt use the leisure centre we did go down for a look & its gorgeous, really nice pool area & big Gym.
Thanks again we will definately be back!

The Clarion Hotel Cork was clean, spacious, and the staff was wonderful. Free Wi-Fi and there's a computer in the mezzanine for guests which came in VERY handy when our plans changed. The restaurant seemed pricey so we avoided it. There are 2 coffee "cubes" right outside of the hotel where you can grab a quick breakfast for less $$$. Parking is in the underground garage and, once we figured out how to get our ticket validated, was reasonably priced. We stayed in a triple - 3 single beds, nice decor and a HUGE bathroom. Highly recommended.

Wonderful hotel, great location close to shopping, the English Market and lots of lovely restaurants in the vicinity - recommend the Brassiere Club next door.

The staff were great and the air conditioned rooms overlooking the river were lovely. All the staff were very friendly and efficient and the breakfast was one of the best I've ever had. Will definitely go back when I'm in the area.

The Clarion in Cork city certainly deserves success. All the staff are very efficient and friendly. The hotel room I was upgraded to was truly spectacular. The food was great, the business centre was great, there is ample car parking and a great swimming pool.
I agree with the last reviewer, this hotel is up there with the best 5* hotels at a much friendlier price.

From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel very welcome. All the staff from reception, to the leisure club and bar were very pleasant and had a genuine desire to look after us. Our room was really great, with a balcony overlooking the river and boardwalk which is such a nice place to sit and relax. We had dinner in Kudo's and my friend who has lived in Asia for quite a while was very inpressed with the food, as was I. Breakfast was also very nice. The location of the hotel is a big plus, only a few minutes walk to the main shopping area. I would definitely recommend the Clarion whether your stay is for business or leisure.
