"Stay while visiting our daughter studying abroad"
Perfect location!! Excellent customer service. Very hospitable!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for business or leisure"
Spent three nights here following a conference, but still working. The hotel is located conveniently close to the bus station, and the city center. Its internet works well in the public areas, but is very weak in the rooms. The gym is actually a fitness club, and is very well equipped. The breakfast buffet is generous, and affordable if you buy the […] voucher the day before. However, drink service at breakfast can be very slow. i would stay here again.

"Did not receive what we booked and paid for"
Arrived at hotel and was checked in. staff did not inform us of two important issues with room. First one, booked double bed, room had two single. Second and most important information that should have been told at check in, room had a floor fan because A/C unit was taken out for repair. Notified front desk about these two issues was told that several […] rooms were missing A/C units that were out for repair. Asked to have room changed to one with Double bed and A/C. Was told nothing was available. Asked to have Manager contact me about situation. No one contacted us. Went to front desk and was told there was nothing they could do. Poor service from a brand name hotel. Would not recommend staying at this location Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would Stay Here Again"
Great location for walking to pubs and shopping in downtown Cork. Not the best neighborhood (next to the bus station) and a bit noisy but we felt very safe and were not kept up by the street noise (and our room faced the street). Nicest room of all the hotels we stayed at while in Ireland and the price was reasonable. Service was excellent and the breakfast […] was worth the cost. We were offered complimentary bottles of water at check out - nice touch that we really appreciated. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Cork.

"Everything just right"
The hotel couldn't be better located, being a 10-minute walk from the train station and 2 blocks from the main pedestrian mall. Superb staff, large room, and immaculate facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Central Location"
Staff is very helpful & courteous to tourists. Great location near main shopping area and lots of places to eat. Parking is good but entry is obscure & off main street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay, central to everything in Cork!"
The staff at the Clarion was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very comfortable and located in the center of Cork close to shopping, the Airport, the bus station, and Live at the Marquee. We went there for a concert at Live at the Marquee and the Clarion sent a bus to pick us up from the concert! I would definetly go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel in the center of Cork."
Hotel was located in the center city of Cork. Hotel was modern, clean, and accommodating. Service was superior and both restruants where fabulous. Would highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Best thing about Cork!"
Overall, we were very underwhelmed by Cork, but loved our stay in the Clarion. The hotel is beautiful, service is good, and the location is very convenient to both the Cork Bus station and Rail Station. The one downside: since we had an interior room with windows facing the atrium, we were bombarded with conference noise from both sides (noise travels […] well in door-less corridors) every night until about 10pm. Since we were travelling with a baby, this was a challenge. If you're not planning on sleeping before 10 though, it shouldn't be a problem. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay in Cork"
Only disappointment was the weather. That can't be helped :(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel was perfect!"
This hotel is very stylish and full of well-dressed business travelers. The location is within walking distance to most everything Cork has to offer. The secure parking garage was a convenient bonus. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, comfortable and well-designed. The 3-course dinner we had at Oysters Restaurant in the […] hotel was one of the very best meals I've had in my life. Plus the restaurant manager was very accommodating about bring the third course to our room to finish. Overall, an absolutely wonderful experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice downtown hotel."
Nice hotel with parking below. Conveniently located in the city center right on the River Lee. Clean and comfortable, and the staff were all very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel right in downtown"
Rooms were nice and clean. Good restaurant and bar. Location is right in downtown. Parking for the hotel was hard to find as the main entrance to the hotel is on a pedestrian only street. We ended up parking in a parking structure about a block away since we couldn't find it prior to checking in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel - would recommend to others"
It was a nice place, in a good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place In City"
Hotel is in central cork city, under five minutes walk from shopping and entertainment areas. Unlike many hotels in area, this was actually quiet at night. It is a large hotel and does lack the ambiance of some other nearby hotels, but the large rooms, modern bathrooms and friendly staff more than compensate . The fitness facility is outstanding by […] almost any standard; if you cannot get outside to exercise and want to, don't pass this up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Clarion is located close to the main shopping area. Taxi's are abundent for travel outside of the area. The quality of service was very good. I would return for another stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel in a central location"
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Nothing real noteworthy about the hotel (positive or negative)Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very very helpful. The front desk assisted us with printing our boarding passes and buying stamps. The buffet was very good and convenient. We would highly recommend the Clarion Hotel in Cork to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central location and close to train station"
Got a good deal through expedia and spent two days in Cork enjoying great walks, the night life and good food in the city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well located and pleasant staff"
My stay was comfortable. Room was very clean. The beds are a little hard and the walls are a little thin. Thankfully there isn't much traffic along the road. Most things in Cork were in walking distance which was a big plus. Breakfast is kinda pricey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to shops and restaurants"
Hotel is nice with nice bar/restaurant and exercise room. Staff helpful with directions and where to go in Cork. Convenient to shops, etc..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First trip to Cork"
Upon arrival I had two suitcases and clearly was having a difficult time getting through the front door. Instead of any one of the three employees standing near the door helping me, they just looked at me and gawked. Admittedly, the only pleasant person at the hotel was the receptionist; she was kind. Upon exiting the elevator to our floor it wreaked […] of smoke and the floors were absolutely filthy. When I say filthy, I mean that they appeared to be 15 year old indoor/outdoor carpet that had not been cleaned in years. The room was fine, all be it, nothing special. Thankfully, the hotel is in a great location. Upon arrival back at the hotel after dinner the security guards were rude and unfriendly. We went to the bar and the bartender was rude and unfriendly. I felt like a pariah. I will never stay at this hotel nor any other Clarion hotel ever again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location but......................"
The hotel is very close to the Bus Station and CBD, very convenient for shopping and dining. The room was very spacious with a lot of storage areas and nice maid service. The main drawback of the hotel was the Reception Staffs which were not very reliable and irresponsible for the guests' service. During my 8 days stayed at this hotel, at least 4 incidents […] which I ran into problems with the Reception staffs which made my stay kind of unpleasant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel in great location."
Stayed here one night on a country wide tour of Ireland. Staff were nice and the room was fairly modern and clean, but our room looked out only to an office building right next door so I can't say this was a "5". The hotel is right downtown and an easy walk to many restaurants, bars and shops. However the parking garage is very hard to find..., located […] what appears to be the wrong way down a one way street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place close to city center"
Great price, comfortable rooms, and great location. The neighborhood around the hotel had good restaurants and shopping. I would choose it again if I return to Cork.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, comfortable hotel"
Clean and modern. Helpful staff. Nice spa on site. Just a few blocks from the center of Cork. Seems designed for business travelers, but was a great stopover on our vacation. Bigger rooms and better service than than most European hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is good."
The beds were not comfortable. The staff did not seem to know where anything was. They seemed to be understaffed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved this place!"
Clean, comfortable rooms. Close to shopping and pubs and has a great bar itself. We completely fell in love with Cork!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night pre-cruise stay"
We stayed one night to catch up with a cruise ship which we'd missed due to air delays. We arrived, ate a meal and left the next morning so we spent very little time there. The room was very nice, except the mattress was too hard for us, the staff was excellent, and the one meal we had was fine. It was a good choice for a one night emergency stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Loved it ONCE WE FOUND IT"
Nice property in good location. Martina, at desk-very helpful. Property is impossible to find; as a tourist, not a good thing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent, helpful staff"
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!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely room - tired city"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a stay in Cork."
Great hotel, after a long drive from Dublin it was great to have a nice room and great food at midnight.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay for site seeing and shopping."
This was the best hotel we stayed in on our trip. Great view and location, always a taxi out front and the bus station is one block away. In room wifi and a/c was a big plus. When I return to Cork I will only stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, pleasant room"
Got lucky with a river view room! Very centrally located, short walk from train station and very easy stroll to city center. Would recommend to any traveler staying in Cork.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel for Families!"
Really well done, clean, up-to-date hotel with great restaurants in the lobby. They have free kids activities every night of the week except Sunday. Really well done. Parking is tricky here so get instructions to parking deck at front desk when you check in (just leave car with hazards on up front)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value for money"
Described as latest Top end hotel in Cork by the tour guides, Clarion actually offers excellent value for money. Located close to the main shopping area and Bus station. Rooms are specious, clean and very functional. I will easily stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Stay for Paddy's week."
The staff was wonderful from the second I walked into the hotel. They were all extremely helpful and courteous. The room was very clean and very comfortable. I had requested a balcony room and that is what was given to me without issue. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the bar service was great. Nice crowds and a comfortable atmosphere. […] The location is excellent being a short walk to the main shopping/nightlife as well as Kent station. I could not recommend this hotel more highly. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
