This hotel is of a certain era, you will either love it or hate it. It is an old building with modern(ish) additions that is in the most stunning location. The staff are pleasant and as chatty as required but lack perhaps a polished service. We had an interconnecting room on the return of the first floor which felt like... More

We arrived on a Friday evening for the wedding the following day and were booked in without delay,the receptionist was friendly and explained all our needs promptly. Room was spacious and clean and the en suite was just as big. Breakfast was good and served by a very boisterous lady on morning 2 but no chat morning 1. Maybe I... More

Arrived into Glengarriff by sailing boat. Beautiful setting. Went to Eccles to ask about having a shower. 12€ each is what we were quoted. We have showers at many venues around the country and the most we have paid is 6 euro each. Rip off! Also for a mediocre breakfast 12 euro each! Needs to get its act together.

We had our wedding reception at The Glengarriff Eccles Hotel in July. The amazing setting was matched by the food, service and attention to detail. We really couldn't have asked for any more. Would recommend to anyone . Even the following day we had a BBQ on the veranda which was the perfect follow up to our special day.

Hotel staff need to be trained before serving food, needs to be brought up to date in the 21st century. Basic 3 star at best, better hotels and bed and breakfast available in area, I would not stay again. I was lucky no midges in room and front facing.

I visited this hotel on a Newmarket Holiday. This well-known, old hotel is past its glory days and now feels in need of some updating. The staff are friendly and the food is OK but the people serving at table need training in how to serve food without throwing the plates at the guests. The alternative to a cooked breakfast... More

Cannot beat the location opposite the bay and just a ten minute walk into Glengarriff. All staff was generally really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fine - cooked was especially generous and the black pudding was delicious! Rooms were clean and spacious although the bathrooms were a little tired looking in our rooms. We did have a deal though,... More
