This is a good hotel with sea views and good bar food but a bit over priced. After all it is in ireland and the weather if its bad its very bad here. Nothing to do if its raining its miles away from the nearest decent town about 29 kmh. So if its raining dont go to barleycove.

Is there a more wonderful setting for a hotel anywhere? To pull back the curtain on a picture postcard view was a treat in itself but when added to the fabulous food and friendly service I would suggest that the Barleycove Beach Hotel should be on everyone's to do list. The food is truly exceptional and served up by a... More

Decided to stop at this hotel for a bite to eat after an enjoyable day at the Mizen head signal station and visitor centre. On arrival, we noticed a sign stating the kitchen was closed till 5pm. As it was 4.45 pm, we decided we would take a seat somewhere and wait. The ireland Rugby match was still on, and... More

Came in for a bite after spending the afternoon on Barley Cove beach. Great food. Husbands roasted pulled beef steak was melt in the mouth, toddlers fish and chips super fresh tasty and ample portion. My broccoli soup was super yummy and filling. Very reasonably priced to boot! Definitely recommend the beach and this place for food. Nice surrounds too

We stayed locally in friends house and visited on two occasions. We had a lovely meal overlooking the incredible beach view. We had a minor problem with the meal which Mark replaced promptly and too our amazement did not charge us for on settling our bill. Our second visit was unplanned due to a mini canine crises. Despite the fact... More

The food in the restaurant was lovely, we ate out on the deck which has a spectacular view of barleycove beach. It is the perfect location... More
