Favourite hotel to stay in when visiting Cork. Can’t wait to visit again once restrictions are lifted. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. Great food in a great setting in the River Club. Can’t recommend this hotel enough and can’t wait to be able to visit again.

This is our 11th year coming to the River Lee when we have a break from work or school. I can say as a well travelled person both with work and socially- you’d be hard pressed to get a hotel that has such wonderful, friendly accommodating staff as the River Lee hotel. The quality, service and professional touch is evident in every aspect when staying- whether at breakfast, dinner or having a drink at the bar. We are a family of 4, including 2 teenagers, that is easily and well accommodated at this establishment. Modern furnishings and fittings which are bright comfortable and welcoming. Access to Gym/Sauna/Steam & Pool included in your stay which we always use. Spinning classes are excellent!!. Having said all the above this is a 5 star premises which is built on the brilliant and friendly staff that make every time we stay here an exceptional and happy time. We’ll definitely be back. Frank

Nestled within the city lies the River Lee-a 5 star hotel with views of the Lee and only a short walk from the famous English Market. From the moment you check in here the staff go above and beyond to ensure your stay is exceptional. Due to Covid 19 there are additional safety measures in place which really make your stay here feel like a safe haven. Some top tips: Book that executive room-it's worth the few extra euros Make reservations in the restaurant as the food here is locally sourced and really tasty Explore Fitzgerald Park which is only a short walk away and has some beautiful walks Make time for brunch aswel-even just for the mimosas Looking forward to when we can visit again in the coming weeks

Stayed here recently with a small group for essential purposes and WOW, what an amazing experience. These people know they're at.. from the greeting you receive on arrival to the attention to detail throughout your stay. We ate here both nights and really could not fault one thing, it was all super tasty. They also happen to pour an excellent Guinness which is a huge plus in my books! Special mention to Fiona who was just wonderful throughout our stay, she really went above and beyond and ensured we enjoyed our time in the city, despite the current lockdown situation in Cork. Kosta was also such a gent and provided us with so many laughs at breakfast. We cannot wait to return !

Excellent friendly professional. Respectful. Stayed here as we live two and a half hours drive away from the Mercy Hospital. Underground parking "on the premises" is so convenient. Staff were friendly . . Very professional.
