... by one of Dennis' Irish cousins. We kind of prepped the gang by saying that it would be crowded with Irish people - it really isn't touristy at all but popular with the local folks. I think that both Dennis and I said, "This is the real deal." Well, we walked in and 70s disco music is blasting from the sound system and the disco ball was spinning...hmmmm. Dennis' cousin John and his wife Allison were there to greet us. The place filled up ...
Oh St. Patrick Day where should I even start, probably from the beginning. 10am in the morning after waking up and putting on St. Paddy's Day attire, which was a green sweatshirt and a green leprechaun hat. Now most people would say that drinking at 10am woud be the sign of a drinking problem, but not when you're drinking vodka and orange juice, which is obviously a breakfast drink. After some more drinking of other beverges we headed to the parade in ...
... days. We were still expecting him to leave, but alas he stuck around for one more pint. Colm then began to lead us across the river to Sober Lane, while Mark took off running to Colm's pub where he was half an hour late for his evening shift. Luckily the boss made concessions for him...
We followed Colm until a random passer-by in a hooded sweatshirt crossed our path.

... my decent back to the city center, and I got to look down on the entire city. That's when I experienced my WOW moment. That's when it finally set in and I realized how much different Europe is from the United States.
This past year has been filled with personal triumps and many defeats, but through it all I've learned so much about myself. I've learned about the dynamics of family, and how many friends have my back through thick and thin. When I was standing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Cork
We, (myself, my partner & two year old son), booked two nights at the Clarion, in Cork, via the internet, and we are happy with our choice. The taxi driver's I spoke to during our stay mentioned the hotel only opened a few weeks ago.
A little slice of heaven
Beautiful hotel, excellent staff!
Got a fabulous suite room 639 on 6th floor fabulous view overlooking the city, the food was delicious typical of the usual clarion standards
Stayed at The Clarion for 3 nights as a midweek, get away from it all break and certainly got what we asked for. As soon as you pull up outside the hotel, you can tell this place is a different class. As you walk in, it is spacious, airy, clean but so welcoming and you are directed to your hotel room within minutes.
Myself, and a group of work colleagues have just returned from a week-end trip at The Clarion Hotel, Cork, Ireland.
I cannot fault this hotel, its location, or staff, all are excellent.
The hotel seems brand new, with quality fittings. The bathrooms, aswell as the surfaces in the room where the tea & coffee making facilities are, are all granite surfaces, the beds are extremely comfortable, and the air-con works a treat.
The pool & spa area is very clean and the water a pleasing temperature.
The location is bang in the middle of Cork, only 20 mins away from the airport.
The only down side to my trip was that I was made to wear a Bride's Dress (I'm male) oh well it was my Stag night after all.
Having just returned we feel it's our duty to let the world into a secret.There cannot be many better hotels in Cork than this one.Virtually brand new with excellent faclities,great staff,brilliant rooms,a very short walk to the City's Bars and a great one on site called Kudos.When in Cork we will stay nowhere else.
An Outstanding Hotel
As part of a Globus tour of Ireland, we have stayed at a great many hotels throughout the country. This hotel was fabulous in every respect - right downtown near all the sights, and on the waterfront for amazing views. It was extremely well soundproofed as we heard no noise from other rooms or from outside. The rooms were fabulous and extremely well appointed. The inner lobby/courtyard is 10-12 stories tall and gives a feeling of grandeur. It is a very new property and all of the fittings and decor are excellent. Dinner and breakfast in the hotel dining room were both outstanding and everyone in our group thought this was one of our very best hotels. An up to date property close to everything in Cork with great service. Highly recommended!
Have not stayed in the hotel but have had lunch during the day in the bar & coffees & snacks in the atrium at night on two recent visits. This is a bramd new, very stylish modern hotel with clean Scandinavian lines. As such it is very different to any other hotels in Cork. However the most impressive aspect of the hotel is the genuine friendliness of the staff - an increasing rarity in Ireland. The first time we visited we had a very energetic three year old boy (our son) with us who was welcomed & indulged even, rather than being tolerated as in other establishments. The staff are genuinely friendly, interested & helpful & seem happy in their jobs. The second time we visited they remembered us from our previous visit (for all the right reasons I hope).
Lovely hotel. Ask for a room with a river view. Better than rooms with viewing the atrium. Food was lovely. Thai cuisine in Kudos delicious as was breakfast.
We stayed at the Clarion for weekend in March and it was fab .. The cool contemporary decor of the hotel was so clean and fresh. We had a package deal through rugby club so we got a bargain also. My favourite thing was the bed, it was so big!! Loved the way the whole hotel revolves around the stylish lobby. No matter what room you are in you can look down on lobby and loads of natural light from glass ceiling. The pool, jacussi etc. were just right. However the best thing about this hotel was the staff, they were all so helpful and friendly. We never met so many happy people before. It is also so close to bars, restaurants and shops-no driving required. We will be going back again with children this time. Another great thing, all children under 12 stay FREE with their parents. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Stayed at the Clarion on 13th March on a room only rate of 99 eur
Its is a superb contemporary design hotel -rooms are spacious well
designed-nice pool and health club.The hotel is not complete and there
is still building work on going but this did not cause a problem for our stay
If you go in the next 2 months you should be willing to put up
with a few teething problems-but for 99 euros its a genuine bargin.
