Recently had a family reunion. The lady at reception was so unfriendly and rude taking the money that I would never go back to this hotel ever again. They also charged €15 for a small plate of chips and sausages.

We attempted to stay there a couple of weekends ago but unfortunately they were full. The girl on reception could not have been more helpful. She phoned around three or four other hotels in the area until she found one with the three rooms that we required. Excellent, I hope I get to stay there next time.

Went for a few days away with 2 other couples (family/friends) and got a great deal. Hotel was full and we were given Rooms 8, 9 and 32. Access to room 32 very handy to lift but rooms 8+9 required a fairly long walk and then a climb up 2 flights of stairs, no problem if you are fit but... More

We had delicious fruit scones and tea and coffee served. The scones were fab and the service was super, paper was given , more coffee was offered ! We will be back... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the West Cork Hotel. Having travelled extensively worldwide I was unsure what the hotel would be like, but I didn't have to worry. We had a fabulous room (room 16). Very spacious, spotlessly clean and great amenities. Staff were very friendly, couldn't do enough for you, especially in the bar... More

We were able to get the last room available for the 3 of us at short notice. The room was on the top floor and had a dreary view, but we enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and live music in the bar. Desk staff were friendly. Wifi was good once they rebooted!

Booked a couple's stay through Dealrush with West Cork Hotel, Skibbereen. On check - in the girl on reception was so friendly & accommodating. We had a main course included in our deal. The food and wine was lovely. On our full day we visited Mizen Head, which was absolutely AMAZING. We were blessed with the weather that we had.... More

We checked into the West Cork Hotel on an untypical sweltering summer's day after a long drive from Dublin and were delighted to find the hotel romantically nestled beside the river with the old railway bridge charmingly decked out with tables and chairs. We immediately ordered up a couple of pints of Murphys and surved the delicious bar food menu.... More

After booking 2 weekend nights at The West Cork (splurging on a hotel with the idea we'd have a little more privacy and luxury), we arrived only to be told there was Irish folk music playing in the ballroom directly below us until after midnight. We understandingly nodded and said that wouldn't be a huge issue for us as we're... More

Travelled to here last week after booking through a deals website. We upgraded our room and were not disappointed, would recommend an upgrade to anyone. Bed was very comfortable and we had as small balcony on which we could look out at the old railway bridge and river. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The restaurant had a nice relaxed...
