The bedroom was grand, food was lovely, staff were lovely, hotel has plenty of character, old style surroundings very comfortable! Now comes the bad bit and it's very bad!! The niteclub (the Venue) was overcrowed, grossly underage, there were people smoking in the club, (these same people removed their shirts and sat in their vests for the night - charming!),... More

Well where can I start?!! What a welcoming friendly hotel!!From reception to bar to restaurant the staff are kind and could not do enough for us, and Clonakilty as a town has some fantastic little shops and boutiques!! Normally I don't leave reviews but I felt compelled to after witnessing heroic bravery from security staff and management who confronted and... More

I stayed in O Donovans recently while attending a wedding in West Cork. I really like the charm of this hotel as it brings me right back to the 1990's. Once you pass through the main door its like a time wrap...transported back to the good ole days...lol. I had a really nice room with a balcony and the service... More

Travelled from Rotterdam with 18 colleagues. Proper old school hotel, very atmospheric old world charm with all mod cons you could want. Staff were great, naturally friendly and the owner Tom treated us like old friends. Don't make any plans for after breakfast, it's delicious and massive and you may need to rest up for a while after it Paddy... More

We had a staff outing from Holland to West Cork and O'Donovan's hotel was our hotel. They treated us like 5 star guests. Going to Ireland you expect warm friendly people and This hotel surely delivered. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Richard

I could not complain about one thing. The hotel was central with this wonderful and romantic charm, the staff could not have been any more accommodating, the Irish breakfasts were delicious (and I'm Irish so I am hard to please on this matter). Not to mention, I slept wonderfully. What more could one ask for from a hotel? I will... More

If you are looking for the 5 star Holiday Inn type place this is not for you but if you want a very homely hotel with extremely friendly... More
