After touring around and on our way home, we decided to stop here for a meal, hotel looks fab, Love the bar decor, windows could do with cleaning as i was looking at cobwebs and dead spiders dangling in front of me while trying to enjoy the gorgeous view of the beech. The 2 girls were sooo friendly, but do... 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

We had a magnificent view of the golden sandy beach and west cork coastline from our bed, so we hardly had to leave the room except to eat ! I would highly recommend this Hotel for a cute romantic getaway. With just steps away from the... More

This is a great spot. Friendliness of the hotel is superb and scenery is breath taking. Accommodation is fine but needs a refresh. Food in restaurant top notch and wireless is now also available. Difficult not to overly recommend this location as a unique and choice place to stay

We have been vsiting this area of West Cork for some years now and whilst we have never stayed in the hotel we often go there for food and drinks. It has a fabulous location overlooking the beach ad when the sun is shining you couldn't get a nicer place to sit and relax. The staff are lovely and friendly... More

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.
