Really enjoyed our stay here, hotel is lovely, spacious rooms and clean. Staff were so helpful and friendly. We planned to stay 1night but my son loved it so much we ended up staying 2. It's a busy spot and great for kids

This hotel is in a stunning location and has quite a bit to offer. However I was rather disappointed on a few points: • I was placed on the cancellation list but never received a phone call to advise of rooms becoming available. • After I secured a booking, upon check in, my room wasn't available until 4pm. • When...

Stayed in a beautiful spacious room with a balcony overlooking Ballycotton Bay. Soft fluffy towels & pillows. The bar was very busy on a Sunday afternoon but the staff were very efficient & the food very tasty. Staff were very friendly especially Laura at reception who made our night there very memorable :-)

We planned to stay there for 5 nights (thanks to deceiving website pictures) but seeing the room, the building with its facilities and the "sea view" that turned out to be a parking view with the far-away perspective of the sea, we decided to cut the stay short. As for the four star hotel, the standard was unacceptable, do not... More

Visiting from Illinois, our family chose the location because of the beach to give us an overall experience. The Garryvoe Hotel truly exceeded our expectations. When two parts (cars) of my family made it the hotel before ours, they insisted I hurry because the location and beach were amazing – as if I could hurry when I was lost. All... More

Had a dinner at the Lighthouse bar couple of times and Samphire restaurant. Samphire was gorgeous! There is a lovely spa in there too..which had... More

Spent 5 nights in Garryvoe Hotel recently with 3 children. We stayed in a family room that was adequate but the beds were so uncomfortable.. We ate 2 nights in the restaurant and the food was amazing from start to finish, I have to say the steak was the nicest I have ever tasted. The breakfast was very enjoyable with... More

All nice staff but disorganised with a number of different people dealing with our table which made it hard to get anyones attention in particular! Ordered tea and coffee after meal but decided to cancel it... More
