I needed an hotel for one night but had thought that I could book somewhere when I arrived in the area. Having tried booking agencies I found everywhere sold out within 30 miles. I started ringing hotels directly and found a friendly and helpful receptionist at the Garryvoe. They were fully booked but one or two rooms were late check... More

Stayed here this week with my husband and our little girl who is one. First impressions when we got to reception were good. Both receptionists were welcoming and helpful. Were checked in very quickly and they explained meal times, where everything was etc. Our room was big and spacious and when booking I had requested a cot and also a... More

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. A family package, we got B&Bs, dinner two nights and passes to fota, titanic in Cobh, trabalgan, jungle play centre in Midleton... Couple that with all that East Cork has to offer, the Garryvoe hotel & the beach were just incredible. Our kids did a little disappearing act on... More

This hotel is built around the fabulous views of the beach and sea.There are so many lovely places to relax in the hotel and enjoy the views of the sea. It is worth paying the extra supplement to have a sea view room. Ours had French doors that opened unto a balcony. Food in their restaurant was delicious. Wonderful swimming... More

We cannot fault the hotel staff in the Garryvoe Hotel. They were courteous, very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. However, we were not entirely happy with the food situation. The main restaurant was ok, the evening meal was good, but a great pity the menu on the three nights never changed. The restaurant is airless and stuffy. Lovely... More

My kids were very comfortable in separate twin beds. Room had plenty of space. The gym was excellent, and the food was good. The only downside was the overly restrictive rules on use of the pool. Swim caps? Really? No kids in hot tub? Otherwise, we had a great stay and enjoyed the great views of the water. The staff... More

We recently spent a six night family break here and really enjoyed ourselves. I suppose the real test of a hotel is whether you would go back and in this case most definitely. We had a very spacious family room with a lovely balcony and view over to Ballycotton, possibly the only downside was that compared to the room the... More

We stayed here last week on a Thursday night and were given a family room on the third floor. The room itself was nice and quite spacious and we had plenty of space for two adults and a child. Another positive was the pool which is really nice. However, overall we felt the hotel lacked a but of character. The... More

My Husband and I and our two kids stayed here last weekend (July 2014), we had a lovely spacious family room. We had our meal in the bar which had a very good menu and most important for me had lots of coeliac options, also was pleasantly surprised to see gluten free beer stocked in the bar. Unfortunately didn't get... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night for a wedding. Having been to a lot of weddings in the past we were expecting the same tired service and fare that is usually part of these packages. We were very pleasantly surprised with Garryvoe Hotel! From start to finish this hotel appears to have got it right.... More
