Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff are very friendly and the food is good. It is in a great location to visit historic Baltimore, Clonakilty or even the Mizen Head lighthouse and museum. Just across the road from the hotel is the Famine interpretive centre. Although the story of the famine is hard to bear, if you wish to... More

Skibbereen is a small town on the south coast of County Cork. You wouldn't expect it to have a largish hotel but the West Cork is just that. Our group of twenty were well looked after by a great team of workers led by the owner who was always visible mingling with the guests. The hotel has large public rooms... More

We had a room on the top floor. The lift only went up so far and we needed to climb three or more flights to reach the room. Not much of a view but the room was pleasant, well-stocked, spacious, clean, quiet and quite comfortable. The hotel is very well-run.. a charming and gracious ambience. And the breakfasts were great.... More

Last Wednesday I was at the carvery with my relatives for lunch. I had the beef and it was delicious. The vegetables were cooked just right. Everything had a really good flavour and it was a meal I'll treasure. I also wanted to pass on my thanks to the gentleman who was the cashier - he was friendly and helpful... More

This was a pleasant hotel close to the centre of Skibbereeen. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was travelling with my sister. Our room was comfortable,but looked out on to a white wall and a huge extractor fan. The food in the hotel was very tasty and there was a varied selection for breakfast. We only spent two nights...

I came to a wedding at this hotel a number of years ago and I have been coming back ever since. The owners and staff typify a warm Irish welcome and the food and service typifies everything that is good about Ireland...they cannot do enough for you. Ann Marie in particular is a real gem...she has a great way with... More

Stayed there a few weeks ago with my wife. Paid a little extra for a superior room. It was fine. The staff are very good, always attentive and helpful. The food is very good, breakfast is cooked to order - try the eggs benedict or the french toast. Bar staff are good. Hotel is spotless. Only problem was the bathroom... More

Lovely location next to the river and on the fringe of the town. Great food (especially breakfast) and a buzzing atmosphere in the bar but they should get rid of the plasma screen TV. It is a noisy hotel though and you may have trouble sleeping.

We stayed one night; the hotel is a busy, bustling space on a lovely location beside the river. The first room we were allocated to was fairly unappealing; two very narrow beds, a huge empty space and what looked like two pull down bunk beds, overlooking the back of the hotel. We asked for another room and were shown two... More
