Stayed here for one and had a really good time. It's directly on the beach, with a little walkway from the hotel through the dunes onto the beach. Beautiful area, lovely room with gorgeous views. Good value, quiet, friendly staff and nice restaurant/bar.

We were holidaying in West Cork and visited Barleycove beach on a sunny day. We were delighted to find that the hotel restaurant was open and serving lunch. It turned out to be the last day of the season, before the hotel closed up shop until next Summer. We were so lucky - the lunch menu boasted a great selection... More

The hotel offers the best access to one of our most beautiful beaches. The food is grand, but when we visited (twice last week) we felt like the customer wasn't really important. They don't really seem to care. Both times there were things on the menu that weren't actually available, food was ok and service was ok... it was all... More

Back again after two years with the family...and more grandkids. Barleycove Hotel still very much the same....a warm welcome from the friendly and courteous staff, lovely food at reasonable prices and very adequate accommodation.It is a very child friendly hotel and everything is done to make it a very pleasant place to stay....all in all a great holiday hotel.

We stayed in House 22 in June with our two small kids. The house was perfect. Clean , well equipped, beautifully furnished with some lovely homely touches. We got a great deal and it was worth the journey. We ate in the hotel and had a smashing meal. Beach is a 2 minute trip down some steep steps. The beach... More

This place is fine for a bite to eat but the restaurant is a little shabby. They could do so much with the place as the views are superb. Food was good and service cheerful. They could do so much more to attract more business from the nearby beach (if they wanted it!>?) and not sure they do to be... More
