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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Hotel and Great Location."
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Can't fault the Clarion"
Great stay in the middle of Cork cityGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was really happy with the Hotel. The only grumble I have is that the pool was really cold when I stayed there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay at the Clarion"
The room was a little cramped, we had asked for a room with a double bed and a single bed (since there were three of us). We got a room with one double bed and two single beds, leaving practically no room to move around. The breakfast did not have enough variety.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Second time being back to this hotel. Really good location and the hotel restaurant is fab too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room not great for business tho"
Great overall but had to work with colleagues and the public areas were so dark in evening and in day. Not conducive as a business hotel. Rooms was huge and comfy tho if a little tired. Staff were all so so helpful and attentive !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friends on weekend break"
We had 3 rooms - all rooms were of very good standard. Staff were pleasant and helpful, ordering taxis for us etc. We would stay there again. Food in Kudos bar v good. 1 of us with mobility issues had a problem having a shower - the showers are in the bath and the baths are very high-sidedGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great comfortable hotel!"
Really enjoying one night stay. Love the extra touches- coffee dock in the lobby which allowed me to read the paper for an hour early in the morning while himself slept, free water on check out. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that. Room was massive and bed super comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, ideally situated"
This hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. You can also get a bus from right outside the airport (226 to Cork)which will drop you at the bus station literally a 2 min walk form the hotel. It's only a short walk into Cork centre from the hotel too. We stayed for 2 nights, arriving at 8.30 Saturday morning. We were greeted by really friendly […] staff, checked in and our room was ready, even at this early hour! The room had a large king sized and a single bed in a large room with all the usual refinements. The Kudos bar/restaurant was lovely the food was good and reasonably priced. The reception area has a coffee bar serving drinks, pastries and light breakfasts ( the scones are yummy!) as well as the restaurant serving buffet breakfasts.The bus stop is around the corner. We went to Kinsale, a picturesque harbour about a 40min bus ride away. Fishy Fishy restaurant there was recommended to us but unfortunately we didn't get time to try it out. There are plenty of small shops restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk from the hotel, a little further on are larger department stores and high street shops. There's a large indoor 'English Market' which was recommended as a 'must see'. Lots of bars are down little side streets, Thomonds is a must if you're there for the rugby, The Rising sun brewery, The Old oak was brilliant for live music on sunday night. Cork is a lovely place to visit with really friendly people. Would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, excellent facilities, super staff"
Stayed here first week/weekend in November 2014 for business and a weekend. The room was much bigger than I expected and the hotel staff are super friendly and accommodating. Food is great (had breakfast which has everything under the sun) and ordered room service after experiencing the delights of the city (and the pubs) a little too much, and the […] room service is super good. The location is close to everything. The city is super friendly and safe. I will seriously not even consider going anywhere else when I visit Cork again. I don't usually do reviews, but I had such a great time here, I thought it would be useful for other people to read this review. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, intimidating night security"
The hotel itself was very nice. Checking in was very fast. I was a little concerned that they require no identification. My only negative was the evening security staff. I found them to be extremely rude and intrusive. I had booked for three nights. On the first and second nights, when returning to the hotel, I was confronted by the security (along […] with his friends, who I believe did not work at the hotel). He asked me the same questions each night. What was my name, what room was I in, When did I check-in, When was I leaving and finally, Could I show my room key card. On the second night he, along with his friends were sitting along the back of the lobby sofas when I arrived back. On the first night he seemed to only be concerned about my reason for being in the hotel and not my friend. My friend and I decided to do a little test on the second night. My friend went in first to see if he would be approached. He wasn’t. However, when I went in, I was asked the same set of questions. I said to him, are we really going to go through this again, his response was, yes we are. His friends laughed. I complained to the reception staff the next morning. They said they would speak with the night staff. I got no apology and they didn’t really seem particularly concerned. On my last night, I could see no security staff at all. Overall the hotel was great, well located and well worth the cost. But I would never book this hotel again due to the intimidating night staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clarion hotel cork"
Clean bright and modern hotel located 2 mins from the city centre. Staff were friendly and pleasant. Room was clean. Good value overall. Given the location, I didn't try the hotel food, but the bar was nice and relaxing when we returned after dinner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything we wanted and more!"
Stayed here for the Cork Jazz festival and it was everything we could have wanted. The hotel is right in the thick of the festival, you didn't even have to leave the hotel to hear great live music and also capture the atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff work very hard to make your stay a pleasant one. Food in the atrium was excellent […] and reasonably priced. Location is very central and feels relaxed at the side of the water. The only down side is that at night it is very noisy and even though stayed up to enjoy the festival it was still noisy as it resonates into the rooms. Hotel should provide ear plugs or look at better sound proofing in rooms. All that said I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location great hotel"

Brilliant stay at the hotel and Cork city for the duration of our stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a weekend in Cork"
This is a lovely hotel which is well positioned for the local buses and trains. The staff, without exception, were very friendly and always helpful. I recommend the Oysters restaurant in the hotel. Very well priced and to quote my wife, "the best meal she has had out for ages!" Regarding the local transport, don't be tempted to hire a car as the local […] buses and trains take you cheaply to the local beauty spots of Blarney castle, Kinsale and Cobh, to mention a few. We also took a coach tour recommended by the Tourist Office to Mizen Head. Brilliant, not to be missed. Local food? Try the Market Lane, Oliver Plunkett and the Chinese Panda Mamma all to be recommended Traditional Irish Music? - The Oliver Plunkett or the Sin E good ale and great atmosphere Enjoy your trip and do go to the Tourist office at the bottom of the Oliver Plunkett Street Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good quality modern hotel in fairly good location in Cork convenient to rail station and city centre.

"Awesome location with great amenities"
This was our first trip to Ireland. We opted to create our own tour. Of the three hotels that we chose to stay at, the Clarion in Cork was, by far, the best. We enjoyed the spacious room and having a mini-fridge in the room! The breakfast buffet was ok, not exceptional, but there was lots to pick from. The staff were very helpful and provided lots of […] useful information about the area. It is a great location for getting around. Close to the train station and the tour bus pickup point. We were just a very short walk from Oliver Plunkett street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. The food in the restaurant of a good quality and reasonably priced. Centrally located for easy access into town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Although 2 double rooms had been booked instead of 2 twin rooms, it was soon rectified. Our twin room only had mini shower gel & shampoo etc for 1 person. My 2 friends in the other room were lucky enough to get chocolates and bottles of water but we didn't even though I booked the holiday. The breakfasts weren't very hot but all in all, we had a great […] stay and enjoyed the weekend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely long weekend."
We had a lovely stay here at the weekend, and were really chuffed with its great location and great facilities. The reception staff were helpful, polite and very keen to help out, providing information regarding the local area upon our arrival. Our room was a great size, and the bed just great with loads of room! The only niggle was that it could get […] quite stuffy as it's very warm (but really, that's not exactly anything to be bothered about!) We didn't hear a peep from any other guests, even though our adjacent room was occupied. Really peaceful night's sleep, but open the door and it's a lively and bustling hotel with loads of atmosphere - a fantastic combination. The hotel bar was quite good, and had even been recommended by a local pub, which I thought was pretty telling. Make sure you are forthright with getting the bar staff's attention; it took us ages to pay a bill, and we were ignored a few times. This, however, isn't the staff's fault. It feels like the management are stretching them all a bit thin and the logistics of the bar aren't very well considered. When we did get served, the staff were again lovely and friendly and could make a mean cocktail! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"clean and modern hotel with attentive staff"
we were visiting Cork for a weekend break. The hotel is well located and very accessible to main shops and City centre facilities. The hotel itself is modern and comfortable.

"Great room, but!"
Great room, light, clean and big. Breakfast was fantastic but all the desk staff were unfriendly and seemed unhappy to be there with the exception of Andreas who was bright, smiled and was very helpful. Service is a very important part of a hotel stay and the Clarion in general needs to lift its game in this area. I would not stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel good service but"
It was a nice stay. We were promised 2 rooms next to each other, but alas this was not. We requested this 2 weeks ahead too as we had 2 group of friends. We wanted quiet side as one of the party had 2 kiddies. Unfortunately hotel did not keep their promise and as expected some drunks were kicking one of the doors at 4.00 A.M in the morning and trying […] to enter one of the rooms where 2 children were sleeping. We were explicit in our requests to prevent this. Nice SPA though and swimming pool and facilities are excellent. Although for the spa the person did not exactly explain the differences between the services provided at the time of booking . Overall nice stay but wish they kept their promise.Brekkie is decent though . Hotel was kind enough to allow us a late check out , which was a bonus as we flew out of Cork in the evening Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
