My wife and I were very impressed with this hotel. The staff couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was comfortable. Food in the restaurant was very reasonably priced and just what we needed after a day in the hills. We stayed 3 nights over the Easter weekend and found the hotel a great base for touring in the region.... More

I have just had lunch in the maritime. Service excellent, polite and non intrusive. I had an open smoked salmon sandwich. I have never been given so much delicious salmon on one plate! Accompanied with brown bread, potato salad, coleslaw, green salad, tomatoes ....... This was a very big plate. Sooo cheap! Definitely no profit made by this hotel. Can't... More

What a disappointment. The pictures on their website are either photoshop'd or from years ago. We had a suite that faced the bay, but was on a lower level that the street noise was like being in New York (guests should be warned or put on a higher level). The glass windows looked like they weren't cleaned in months. You... More

We have visited the Maritime about twice yearly for the last 6 years and we always enjoy the experience! The hotel is consistently excellent! The rooms are air- conditioned, large, lovely decor with a different colour for each level making it easy to recognise your floor from the lifts! We stayed for a week this time and were not disappointed;... More

I have to start by saying that this hotel was a huge disappointment. We left Cork and drove to it full of expectations. It looked good on-line and my fellow Trip Advisor reviewers, seemed to report favourably on it. Our lingering memories of this hotel will be the vivid blue hoardings across the road which partly obscured our view of... More

We returned to the Maritime in June this year and hoped that the standards would be as high as on previous visits. We found that it was as good as ever. The rain joined us in Bantry, but the hotel is weather-proof. The leisure centre is top class, the pool itself is simply perfect. We had an evening meal which... More

This is a nice hotel overlookin the bay, rooms are air-conditioned (not often needed in Ireland but on this occasion the weather was really warm) and really comfortable. The bathrooms also have separate bath and shower. Breakfast was excellent also. Try the smoked kippers! The hotel is new, with modern decor.

Stayed at Maritime Hotel alongside many professional musicians for the wonderful West Cork Chamber Music festival. Looking out across the bay is beautiful. Bantry is a small town right in the far south -west of Eire. It feels a bit like stepping back in time. The locals were very welcoming and the hotel is warm and efficient and the food... More

We were greeted well and checked in quickly, the room was clean with a great view but I had booked a double room and was presented with two single beds, not the end of the world and didn't want to make a fuss so just pushed the beds together.

Spent 4 nights here, lovely staff very friendly and welcoming. We had a nice room with a balcony looking over the harbour. Yes the road was noisey but did it matter no.
