Called in to the bar for a quick lunch while passing through. Parking was a nightmare with no signposts to the hotels own car park, only found the car park after going in towards The Eldon car park. Pints were good, great value, very rare to find an Irish hotel still charging under the €5 mark. Chicken and bacon salad... More

While visiting County Cork my husband and I were taken here for lunch by family also staying in the area. All of us enjoyed our lunch! I had the vegetable soup, it was delicious and just what I needed! The hotel is lovely, the staff friendly. We hope to return again!

Stopped by chance for lunch - big mistake. A very sad looking carvery, overdone meat and watery vegetables. We were taken to a dirty table, which was then wiped with a slimy looking cloth. There were a lot of people eating, maybe all four of us were unlucky, but it was grim. The hotel looked as if it had been... More

This is exactly the way Irish hotels should be but very rarely are. I stayed here on a business trip and was taken by the sincere and welcoming attitude of the staff. The hotel is old but has been modernised tastefully with spacious rooms. The restaurant was very good value and unlike too many Irish hotels the bar served a... More

West Cork is often bypassed by travelers heading for the renowned Kerry and wet coast trips. West Cork with it's beautiful villages and seascapes is fantastic, and The West Cork Hotel is a fine base for your sojourn. Located in the town of Skibereen, with a great choice of restaurants, pubs, markets and walks, it is ideal. Comfortable accommodation, helpful... More

Everything about this hotel is excellent and has been for years. The management and staff are always delighted to welcome you to their hotel and to West Cork. The service and meals are just fantastic. What more can be said? We will be back.

We spent 2 nights at the West Cork Hotel. The hotel is well located, the staff are great, and the rooms comfortable. The hotel has a local feeling and very good service. The hotel is medium sized but feels intimate. The breakfast was very good. We upgraded to a larger room that was worth it. We recommend.

A quick weekend break to visit my brother-in-law who lives nearby. From the moment we arrived the staff were brilliantly attentive without being overwhelming. The room (16) is magnificent, spacious and beautifully appointed. Enormous bathroom too! Breakfast was substantial, if that's what you wanted. On Sunday evening we entertained for dinner. An excellent meal of local produce presented in impeccable... More

I have enjoyed both bar food and restaurant facilities in this Hotel recently. It is always busy and this can be a detractor at times as the Restaurant gets very noisy and this can take from overall enjoyment. I recommend the bar for food which is consistent but can lack imagination. Perhaps, changing the Menu, from time to time would... More
