"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
"Great hotel, great location and great service."
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
"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
"Great family getaway"
Loved it, lovely peopleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for the city centre shopping"
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

Great central hotel, smart and modern, very adequate and fabe value. Food good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most enjoyable stay"
My friends and I enjoyed our stay immensely. I liked the little add on touches like the free cocktails in reception on Friday night, on Saturday, when we were checking out, we noticed an old lady availing of the free manicure being offered. Our room was lovely and the staff were very helpful, friendly and pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice stay and very centrally located"
Very nice hotel, everywhere in the city center is within 10 minutes walkGenuine Expedia guest review
The Clarion is a fab hotel. From start to finish it was hassle free. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is delicious. Hotel room was lovely, huge bed and lovely bedlinen. Location was good about a 10 minute walk from the centre of everything. Was a very comfortable stay and would have no hesitation in recommending to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good quality modern hotel in fairly good location in Cork convenient to rail station and city centre. Room good size and well appointed, but looking into central atrium with non opening windows ventilated by air-conditioning. Did not eat in Oysters Restaurant (due to other commitments) which appeared to be good, but food in Bar and Atrium only medi […] ocre Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very friendly and willing to advice and help. The restaurants in the hotel are great and provide delicious room service. There is also a large choice of food at breakfast. I also liked to size of the rooms and the fact that the bathroom included a bathtub and shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I liked the hotel i would go back there"
It was a great experience to travel around Ireland by car, its the best way to see the country.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. We were struck by the helpful and attentive staff throughout our stay. Nice room overlooking the internal atrium area - giving a real sense of space. We would highly recommend […] this hotel.

"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

"Close to city centre"
Staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful with any questions askedGenuine Expedia guest review
We spent two night in your hotel, the food in the restaurant was good unfortunate understaffed the two nights we were there. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, staff at the front desk were friendly. It was a shot 5 minute walk to the shopping area.Genuine Expedia guest review

Perfect location in the city centre. Great access to shops restaurants and bars. Great service and clean rooms. Enjoyed the spa facilities.Genuine Expedia 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
"Fantastic hotel in great location in Cork"
We received a very warm welcome upon check in. We'd travelled to Cork to go to a concert in the city as park of Cork's Live at the Marquee festival and was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel offered a free shuttle bus to and from the concert, and a cheap late menu in the restaurant when we returned. Our room was big, modern, comfortable, quiet […] and clean and the rest of the hotel facilities were just as nice. Upon checkout we were given a free bottle of water each to take away with us. Nice little touches and friendly staff make this hotel a great choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"BEST SITUATED HOTEL AND NICEST STAFF"
We went to Cork just to see Tom Jones at the Marquee. Never having been there, we picked the closest hotel to the Marquee. Well, without knowing it, we were at the best situated hotel, could not be more 'downtown', by the river, and at one street distance from the bus terminal, the train station, hundreds of restaurants and one block from the shopping […] mall including Marks and Spencer and SuperValue. Having a balcony and the view of the river, we were buying our salads and cold meats at those two supermarkets and eating on the balcony. That week, we even broke records of temperature. But most of all, the nicest people I've ever met were the Irish. Still cannot believe how nice those people are, without exception. They all go out of their way to be of hand ! We even ended up being invited at an office party in the two story penthouse. I would definitely go back to Cork and ONLY at this hotel ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel close to city centre"
Very relaxing after a hard day exploring the beautiful city.very helpful staffGenuine Expedia guest review
We only stayed for one night and would have loved to stay on longer, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was delicious, plenty of variety and all freshly cooked. Will definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the hotel"
The customer service was great, the hotel looks amazing from inside and out. Great location, walking distance from the city centre and about 15-20mins away from the airport. Great value for money. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Cork. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel but rather noisy and rowdy guests"
Good hotel, very central, but with events and private parties on both nights we stayed, we didn't get a good nights sleep either night. Other guests staying were very loud, and unfortunately I don't mean in a positive way - many Irish venues are lively, this hotel just attracted a raucous and rather selfish crowd. Its good to see people enjoying themselves […] - but not at the expense of other guests. Hotel needs to be able to segregate better those who pay for a hotel room because they want somewhere to get a good nights rest from those who want to have a good time. Squealing guests returning loudly to their rooms at 3 o'clock in the morning ruined our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel with extremely helpful staff"
Very decent sized rooms with modern facilities, and some nice touches such as LED reading spotlights by the bed with soft touch" on/off switch. Free wifi in the room was much appreciated. Staff were VERY helpful and friendly. If you wish to use the pool, remember to take a swimming cap (or else you will have to buy one for 2 euros). Only bad point was […] the 6.15am alarm call we got by mistake (for which we got profuse apologies). Food in Kudos was good and the lounge area was very comfortable although breakfast was a little disappointing eg cheap sausages. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Must be the best hotel in Cork"
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean and spacious. Quality of in house restaurants was excellent and the pool facilities excellent. I did visit the spa for a massage and found the experience very poor...kept waiting for 30 minutes with no explanation and quality of massage incredibly poor...they didnt even bother to ask me if all was […] ok and if i enjoyed it. This wouldnt stop me staying at hotel again but i definitely would not book another treatment. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is in a great location in the city centre. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Superbly clean and accommodating!"
This hotel completely exceeded our expectations. Cork itself is an amazing place to visit and our only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough! Both of the restaurants in the hotel produces outstanding food. And the staff were constantly cleaning, tidying and ensuring that everything is ok for you and that you are comfortable. The hotel is in the […] centre of everything which you may wish to visit or venture to, literally no more than a 10 minute walk to the train station, the shopping malls and less than five minutes to the closest pubs and bars. Overal the hotel was brilliant and we will be visiting again in the near future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another enjoyable stay in Cork at the Clarion"
This was our third stay at the Cork Clarion. As with previous stays, it was pleasant and very enjoyable. Staff were efficient, polite and helpful. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The Clarion is located well, close in to the centre of Cork, many nice restaurants, pubs and sights. We will definitely stay at the Clarion again.Genuine Expedia guest review
