We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights B & B with 1 dinner. The dinner was excellent. The room was good just the bathroom was a bit tight. We drove of for the day and had stuff with us for picnics and the staff kept things cool for us during the night and recharged the ice packs. On both... More

Fantastic staff and great accommodations. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our group of 23. We had special requests and none seemed to be too much trouble for them. The chef even conducted a cooking class for the group making soda bread and grilling hake fish. Can't recommend highly enough.

Hotel was very comfy. Clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and possibly the best breakfast i've had in a hotel. Great location on the river with a nice little beer garden over the river. A little dated but adds to the charm. First time i have been handed an actual key to a room in a long time.

Went to the hotel to meet an old friend and had a bite to eat and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and very helpful.The food arrived and was cooked to perfection. In an ideal location just outside the town center.

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay on a short visit to West Cork. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the bright spacious room overlooking the river from the side of the hotel. The food was excellent and we were impressed with the breakfast menu and also dinner. Good to know that produce is locally sourced.... More

Stopped for one night whilst touring through the area, check in was friendly and easy, the room we stayed in was at the front of the hotel overlooking the river and the road, hence we had some issues with outside traffic noise. A good 3 star room that was clean and tidy, nothing special but ok for short stay. We... More

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
