Good sized bed and room. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful, from the smiling room maids to the bar staff who gave good advice on Irish whiskeys. Breakfast was of good quality and plenty of choice.

Stayed in the Clarion last weekend. Despite being a very busy weekend, we could not have been made feel more welcome by the extremely helpful & friendly staff. The hotel itself is extremely clean, with a modern feel, & is an ideal location for your stay in Cork. We ate in the hotel restaurant & the food was faultless. Great...

Enjoyed our night in the Clarion. Rooms were lovely and hotel had lovely clean modern feel. We ate in the bar which was nice but quite crowded and noisy so we moved to the lobby for our drinks, which was perfect. The only negative I have was that the breakfast room was full so we had to eat on low...

We stayed in the Clarion hotel for my sister's hen party in June. Despite being a 20-something group of hyper girls we felt very much welcomed at the Clarion. Anne marie managed our booking and nothing was a bother to her, suggesting activities, rearranging rooms, early checkin. Certainly knowing the hotel had everything sorted took away some of the stress...

I stayed with two colleagues at the Clarion one week whilst in Cork for business. The Clarion met our needs perfectly. First, it is conveniently located and you can walk to most places in 20 minutes or less. Located on the Lee River, there are several good restaurants on the same block. The food in the hotel was great. The...

For a very local type of area the Clarion was a nice delight to see. Friendly service, clean bedrooms and nice furniture. Pretty good but we had some little issues with the shower screen as it was one which moved, and somebody could have gotten seriously hurt. Maybe a sign to warn visitors? And also room service was pretty expensive...
