Recently stay here for four nights with other family members and I have to say it was excellent. Helpful welcoming staff, especially John on reception, who quickly sorted out a small issue with our room. Made us feel at ease and that anything was no trouble. Breakfast was just brilliant! Recommend the smoked salmon! The hotel has the feel of... More

We recently had a two night break in the West Cork Hotel and really enjoyed it. It's a great base for exploring the area around Skibbereen and Baltimore and is in a lovely location on the banks of the River Ilen. The hotel is in the centre of the town but there is a lot of parking in the grounds... More

We are just back from a three night stay at the West Cork Hotel. We were really happy with every aspect of our stay. The food was excellent, the bedroom was very comfortable and the staff were lovely from the reception staff to the waiting staff to the management. It is family run and we found that this really added... More

We recently took advantage of a Mid Week Break offer from the hotel and found it to be very comfortable and efficiently operated. The hotel appearance is neat and clean with the public rooms being comfortable and spacious. Our booking included both dinner and breakfast with a bottle of house wine with the dinner. The dinner offerings were varied and... More

First off I should say that we made a very late booking and by the time we arrived at the West Cork Hotel it was 1 40 am. Despite our late arrival, the night staff could not have been friendlier, more professional, or more accommodating. The man who let us in was extremely welcoming and handled our check-in with no...

I'm passionate about my coffee. This is the best in town, and would be in many towns . . . the last I remember being this good was sitting opposite the leaning tower of Pisa savouring every last drop of my coffee before having to leave Italy. I was actually trying to find a listing for the Bridge Bar at... More

I stayed here with my mum recently and we were both really happy with our visit. The staff hospitality was noticeably excellent (something thats been generally lacking since Celtic Tiger). The room was very spacious and had everything we needed (good wifi). The breakfast was vast and catered for any food allergies and is available until midday. We dined here... More

I have stayed at The West Cork Hotel many times as I have family who live in the area and I must say that the hotel has improved so much in the last few months! The rooms are bright and airy and very clean. They have redecorated the rooms but they have not lost the old style charm. I will... More
