Had a pre-New Year break in this hotel and it's still really good. The location just can't be beaten, you can walk everywhere in Cork City in a few minutes. The rooms are great, we had a balcony room on the 5th floor and the views were great. The whole place is spotlessly clean. There was a dinner in the...

Second visit of the year to the Clarion after strike gold by getting a last minute online rate which was significantly lower than other hotels.

For a weekend in Cork, the Clarion is a great choice. I've stayed here 5 times. It's in a great location, 3 min walk to Patrick Street, very nice staff, great value for money, very good breakfast and lovely rooms. It's worth getting a room to the front with a balcony too. Kudos restaurant in the hotel is handy too,...

Visited with a friend back in February. A wonderful hotel in the city centre. Room was modern, spacious and extremely comfortable. Check-in was efficient and all staff were friendly throughout our stay. Had dinner in one of the hotel restaurants. Good food, but I would recommend eating out as well.
