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...
