The Clarion's Cork staff was extraordinarily helpful with everything from check-in options (gave us an apartment for 4 of us to share), to parking information, assistance with restaurant reservations and directions. While the facility's location and decor were very nice, the staff is what makes this place special!

Staff wasn't as friendly as we encountered throughout the rest of Ireland. We chose Cork as it was convenient for touristy day trips -- but it is a tired looking and rather depressing city. Room was nice size, well decorated and very comfortable. Didn't even have a small shop or kiosk in the hotel where you could buy necessities such as water. Ask them for directions to Scoozi -- an amazing place for breakfast a short walk from the hotel. It is bursting at the seams with locals.

The Clarion had some attributes which were very good, and some which were not so good. It is in a great location in the heart of the city, with good leisure facilities. The standard of food for room service was excellent, however service to the room had a lot to be desired. The standard of food in the restaurant was also good, with service much better in the bar area. Rooms had all of the basics, and were very clean, but be aware if you are staying on the first floor, as you can hear the music from the bar area below at night.

One of the best spots to stay when taking in Cork City. Central and overlooking the river! Staff are very friendly and accommodating for special requests. Rooms were Wark find large enough. I really dislike the bath/shower combo at this stage but that problem is not unique among Irish hotels. Loose the bath and open up the shower more. Guests love a good powershower! Would definitely recommend

The Clarion Hotel in Cork is very stylish and cool for a very reasonable price. Our room was clean and a good size. The mattress was a little too firm for my partner's taste, but I didn't mind it. The hotel is right in the centre of Cork, so even though there's not much of interest on its street in particular, it was only a couple minutes' walk to all the fun and charm of the city (including the wonderful English Market). An Brogh is quirky, fun pub also situated nearby. Kudos, the hotel restaurant, is quite overpriced, so I'd recommend going out to one of Cork's many other excellent and interesting restaurants. The Clarion's staff are very friendly and full of info and recommendations. The fitness facilities are the best I've come across in hotel. I'd definitely recommend the Clarion to other visitors to Cork.

Just a weekend break but very happy with all aspects of this hotel. Reception/checking in and out very efficient. I paid for two days breakfast on booking in at 12EU as opposed to paying 14.95EU on the day. They also gave me a 20% voucher for the Kudos restaurant where I had an excellent very fresh fish and chips. Large choice at breakfast where staff were also friendly and efficient. Room had a king size and single bed and was cleaned well daily. TV had all BBC, ITV channels and Sky News. Free Wi-Fi too. Location excellent, out of the front door and onto the quay. I'm sure it would be great in summer. Nearby Oliver Plunkett Street has plenty of bars and restaurants. The Oliver Plunkett pub and Market place restaurant highly recommended. I just got the bus to and from the airport (5.50EU each way) and the bus station is a couple of minutes away.

The hotel is very comfortable and the staff incredibly friendly.Nothing is too much trouble. Great location on the river and very short stroll to Plunkett Street with all the shops,bars and restaurants. Only slight problem was noise from hotel atrium which seems to amplify sound, but went quiet at midnight so only minor issue. 226 bus from airport drops you very close to the Clarion. We intend to revist Cork and will stay here again.

Have stayed here numerous times. I always liked it. This time stayed in room 523. It seemed like it really needed to be redecorated. It needed a new paint job. There were stains on the decorative blanket at the end of the bed. And there was a musky smell in the room. I think this may have been caused by someone leaving the fridge in the room plugged out. Hope they raise their game again, as it used to be a nice hotel.
