Stayed here for three nights, we were blessed with good weather. It was our first visit here and we were highly impressed. Check in with Laura was professional & friendly. Our room was on 4th floor, side view to sea. (Perhaps if tops of palm tress were trimmed view would be better, just a suggestion.). Room was spacious and clean.... More

Great location on Garryvoe Strand, sea view room give a spectacular view of the sun rising over Ballycotton Bay and Lighthouse. On our visit, the hotel was busy with families, but it's large so it copes well. Busy in the restaurant in the evening, but both the Cove Bar and the hotel lounge were pretty quiet, and there's no nearby... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during the Easter holidays, occupying a twin room facing the hotel car park. The room was extremely spacious and from that point of view very comfortable for two people. It was quiet at night and therefore conducive to sleep. However, some aspects leave me disappointed and unsure if I would return. Firstly,... More

The location of Garryvoe Hotel is spectacular, especially when the sun is shining. The views from the front of the hotel are breathtaking. Ballycotton perched up on the cliff edge across from Garryvoe beach is a view not to be missed if you are staying in Cork. The staff were friendly and attentive and the cooked breakfast was delicious and... More
