Stayed at the West Cork Hotel for the weekend visiting friends for a Christening. It was the quickest check-in I've ever experienced I think, literally signed a form, was given the key and told where the lift was. This on the one hand was very efficient, however on the other hand we weren't told where breakfast would be the following... More

Had previously attended a family function a few years earlier and my wife and myself said we would definitely return - so just after Xmas, a special offer popped up on my phone and what with the Euro being so favourable, we booked a short break (just before Valentines). Our stay included 3 night in a superior bedroom, 3 breakfasts... More

A group of us just had a lovely nights stay in The West Cork Hotel. Dinner was wonderful and the staff at dinner were very nice........ especially the manager. The reception area and bar is really nice and welcoming, however the bedrooms are small and could do with a little up dating but was still lovely and comfortable. The night... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying in this hotel on a number of occasions. From the owners down to the cleaning staff nothing is too much trouble .It seems that their only intention is to ensure that you enjoy your stay to the full. From the moment that you arrive you are assured of a warm... More

My husband I stayed in this lovely Hotel in late November when we travelled down to a funeral in the area. I must say from the exterior on a grey November day we were a little apprehensive but from the minute we walked in the door to the reception area we were truly smitten! The staff without exception were so... More

We held our wedding reception at the West Cork and it was a magical evening, the food was excellent and the staff could not be more friendly. Our guests were all delighted with the hotel and the wonderful service. They are still talking about the roast beef, outstanding.

We stayed in the West Cork and will hopefully continue to do so for many years. We love the staff and the food. Rooms are good but sometimes a little worn especially in the bathrooms. However the food is outstanding and the staff extremely friendly. Easy access to the town of Skibbereen and also to the beautiful area of West... More

We have stayed in the west cork a few times and it's always a good experience. The hotel is well located in the town and is popular with local people as well as visitors. The food and service are great, some of the rooms are a bit dated but always clean and comfortable. Looking forward to staying there again soon.

Hotels don't usually live up to my expectations of being genuinely friendly. However, after two nights in this family run hotel you definitely experience true hospitality and a real sense of warmth and real customer care from very helpful staff. We enjoyed the food, the cosy bar, the big fires...there's free parking, you are in the town, and the rooms... More
