    I loved my stay so much that I hating checking out time, from the moment I checked in it was pure luxury. I found the staff extremely friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble for them. And I will be visiting again very soon.

    Except my lack of knowledge of the city and getting to the hotel there is nothing bad I can say about this hotel, it has become a firm favourite when I want a break.

    We were upgraded to a suit and it was amazing. We had fabulous views over looking the river and the size of the bedroom was huge! It would have been nice to have had a spa bath in the bathroom. Lovely soft robes, nespresso coffee machine. Great swimming pool and gym.

    I couldn't compliment this hotel any more, I was amazed at the standard of service and added to an incredible experience. Room was amazing with a fantastic view. Would definitely stay at the River Lee again if i'm back in Cork.

  • Couple

    No tv in hotel bar. All hotels are too expensive in Ireland and €120 on a Sunday night is not good value for money in any hotel.

  • Group of friends
