Had a family break, we got a family room, with pull down beds, the kids loved it, the food was very good for the evening meals, the breakfast was a bit slow however the range of food was good and the food also. Can't say much bad about the hotel only it was a bit outdated.

We arrived at the West Cork hotel at 1700 hrs on a cold and wet evening, and the room was cold. Radiator didn't come on in either the room nor bathroom. Receptionist said the room ought to be warm, but considering that the window was open (mid January) that was unlikely even if the radiator had been working. Faint smell... More

My husband and I stayed here the night before my brother's wedding and were so thankful that we had booked the hotel the wedding was in for the next night. The rooms are small,pokey,old-fashioned and the bathrooms are like something from your Granny's house - serious need of a makeover. The night's sleep was uncomfortable - the mattresses have been...

Stayed at the West Cork for 3 nights as part of a great tour. The food was excellent, very large portions. My room was great & the staff was efficient & pleasant. The pub was great with live music for us every night. A delightful stay my first time in Ireland.

This was yet another re-visit for me for a meal at The West Cork Hotel. The food and service never fails to please, in a relaxed, comfortable, cosy environment, whether as a family group, solo or with friends. Tonight I enjoyed a fillet steak, with the usual trimmings, cooked to perfection and served by the professional, friendly and attentive staff,... More

This is our second time staying here. It is like living at home!! The best hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff treat you like family and ask how your day was and where you are going. The prices are very very reasonable. I would stay here again anytime I'm in Cork.
