We stayed here recently as a family of 2 adults and 2 children for 3 nights. The hotel is easily accessible from Ballincollig main street. We had a slight delay in checking in as our room was not ready. We had intended to use the pool that afternoon but didn't get a chance. The bedroom, on the 2nd floor was,... More

We stayed in this hotel last year, and because of its great facilities and location, and Ballincollig being a nice town we decided to stay here again as part of our family holiday with our two kids. Since we were there last, the bar and restaurant have been upgraded, found them grand last year but definitely a nice change too.... More

Stayed here on a 3 night break 3BB1D, family pass to Fota including a picnic. We got a lovely big family room, very clean with plenty of space. Good breakfast, although I'd recommend they improve the cooked breakfast! Nice bar with music every 2nd night. The young ladies running the kids club were amazing, really took great care of our...

My family and I stayed at the Oriel House Hotel over the last few days. From the moment we arrived the staff were so friendly and helpful. They welcomed our children with warm smiles and made them feel very special on their little holiday. The room was clean, fresh and well maintained. Also the lifts were very fast, no messing... More

Beautiful, comfortable, big rooms and a super friendly staff makes this hotel a great place to stay. Then add its proximity to the center of town (about 300 m), its gym, swimming pools, kids activities, restaurant! If you like to work out, you'll enjoy running along the street in front of the hotel. If you're a swimmer you'll appreciate the... More

Really enjoyed a 4 night break here and cannot fault the hotel in any respect. Fabulous rooms and facilities. Their strongest point is their staff - young, friendly and could not do enough for you when asked - but there lies the problem - you have to ask - repeatedly! The table servers lack complete direction and run helter-skelter over... More

Stayed here for two nights recently. Didn't spend much time in the room, in part because they didn't lend themselves to hanging around in. The hotel itself is nice enough and the bar is quite lively at night. Breakfast was quite nice too. Not a bad place to stay for business or something but wouldn't recommend for a luxury weekend.
