Staff were extremely friendly & helpful. I had to amend my booking a few times due to work commitments, but this was not an issue with the front desk, who were more than understanding. Added bonus was that the bar stayed open til late !!

Stayed one night with hubby and our friends booked as well. Our room was huge, bright and very well decorated. Comfortable bed and the breakfast was good. We also had a bath in room and all shampoos and lotions. Only down side no leisure centre. It is very central to touring West Cork. Would gladly stay again

Rooms were very clean and comfortable with no noise discernable on what were 3 very busy nights. Staff are very professional. To top it all we attended... More

One very quick lift to the first floor. Room was usual size and clean. Door had an old type mechanical key. Bathroom had the usual fixed shower head and... More

This time he arranged (in addition to the fantastic food, accommodations, entertainment, pub and snug, the bridge - we LOVE playing on the... More

We decided to go to the West Cork Hotel for some bar food. Busy that evening but managed to get a table in the bar. My daughter is a vegetarian and a coeliac. Shouldn't be a problem in this day and age you would think but I was very wrong. The only options was goats cheese or a veg curry.... More

Very friendly staff, very helpful and accommodating. Beautiful hotel with front veranda. Ideally situated in the town. Lovely food especially the three course dinner. Nice bar area and outside drinking area. There is a car park across the road. There is a very good Wi-Fi service.
