One weekend evening we decided to plan a impromptu mini holiday down in west cork. We rang around but the only available hotel at the hour we called was a little gem of a hotel called The rate st Cork. I have dined in the hotel on previous visits to the south west but never stayed overnight so I was... More

I'm passionate about my coffee. This is the best in town, and would be in many towns . . . the last I remember being this good was sitting opposite the leaning tower of Pisa savouring every last drop of my coffee before having to leave Italy. I was actually trying to find a listing for the Bridge Bar at... More

I stayed here with my mum recently and we were both really happy with our visit. The staff hospitality was noticeably excellent (something thats been generally lacking since Celtic Tiger). The room was very spacious and had everything we needed (good wifi). The breakfast was vast and catered for any food allergies and is available until midday. We dined here... More

I have stayed at The West Cork Hotel many times as I have family who live in the area and I must say that the hotel has improved so much in the last few months! The rooms are bright and airy and very clean. They have redecorated the rooms but they have not lost the old style charm. I will... More

I`ve stayed at The West Cork on a number of occasions although not in the last twelve months until a couple of weeks ago. Still a marvellous combination of old style class and modern convenience. As has been the case on previous stays numerous subtle improvements have taken place. Over the years the nucleus of the staff has remained the... More

Have recently spent three nights here. Skibbereen itself has not much to offer, other than Hyne Lake, but it's a central location, particularly to a much appreciated Mizen Head and Sherkin Island. The accommodation is somewhat dated - would benefit from a revamp - the musty/worn smell in the corridors is off putting - the room was clean and met... More

Been coming here for years and this hotel has so much to offer. The restaurant is fantastic, large selection of great food. From steak, fish, curries, burgers, great chicken wings! This is a great place for lunch with the girls or evening dinner with the family. There's a great bar, formal dining room or a cozy hall in front of... More

We returned to one of our favourite Irish hotels for our recent Easter break in the glorious sunshine. The West Cork offers comfortable, affordable accommodation in a gorgeous riverside setting. We enjoyed hearty, homely food from the bar menu and a plentiful breakfast in the restaurant every morning. The old style key for the room was a nice reminder of... More
