Touring Ireland
Touring around Ireland, nice hotel, friendly staff, only thing is there are not any other eateries close to you, so you need to eat at the hotel or walk a lot. Although the food at the hotel was scrumptious!!!

The River Lee
Had a great 3 night stay at the River Lee Hotel with my wife for our anniversary. Staff were very helpful with any requests. Had several nice meals at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed a cigar after dinner outside by the river. Great location for a shirt walk to the downtown area.

Modern and comfortable
A new modern hotel on the river bank with contemporary clean-lined decor and spacious rooms. The sitting area near the elevator on every floor offers great view of the city. You can walk everywhere from the hotel. I would have rated it higher if my husband and I had been given a room with a king size bed (i.e. a double room clearly stated on my reservation) instead of one with 2 beds (a full and a twin).

Great hotel in a great location.
The River Lee is a lovely, modern hotel in a great area. It is a short walk to Restaurants, shops and attractions. It is also very close to University Cork College. Each floor has a bright sitting area where we enjoyed sitting and reading. There is also a nice lounge area on the main floor. The rooms were nicely equipped. Ours unfortunately did not have the river view but suspect that is because we requested the 3 single bed option.
