We took our family summer holidays in Glandore this August. We were tired after a long drive and in low spirits. When we arrived in Glandore the drive down to the pier was stunning. The road was lined with tables outside the two gastro-pubs and there was a lovely atmosphere. Our spirits were immediately lifted. When we arrived at the... More

I have been here many times for meals with my family and friends. It is ideally situated with fabulous views over the beautiful Glandore Harbour. We ate while watching children sailing, kayaking, swimming and enjoying the wonderful summer. We have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful but must say that when busy (which is most days in... More

Well done to the excellent young staff who served us lunch at a family function on Sunday 28th. July (approx. 20 people). They were extremely friendly and humerous and hothing was too much trouble. The lunch was also 'five star' standard. A great location overlooking the harbour. Will be back soon hopefully! Noelle from Cork.

I stayed here for a wedding held locally. As this is the only hotel in town its location was ideal. The breakfast was fine nothing special, bedrooms a bit dated but fine. The price €100 per night for a double room with breakfast was probably on the high side. ps Glandore is beautiful.

We stayed at a last minute at the Marine and had to take the room offered but would not return. I think our room must have been an unused staff room as it was dark dingy and uncomfortable with a bed that had springs you could feel and a shower that was a squeeze to even turn around in. To... More

We stayed here at the end of May for 2 nights for a wedding in The Rectory. Stayed in a 3 bedroom self catering apartment. It had everything that we need. We couldn't fault the place. It was nicely located. It is very easy walking distance of The Rectory, for a wedding, and The Glandore Inn.
