We would highly recommend the Fota Island Resort to those who are traveling in Ireland and wish for a place that is peaceful and luxurious. Our room was very quiet and, with a view over the garden and woodlands, felt like a home away from home. The bed was the most comfortable one we've slept on so far; in the... More

Myself and my wife enjoyed a relaxing weekend recently in Fota Island Resort. The room was very comfortable and spacious with all the Sky Channels. The only problem experienced was the shower which proved to be a little difficult to switch on. The staff were most helpful especially the Concerierge service who were prepared to offer a shuttle service to... More

Cobh which is a short drive away does not have a lot to offer regarding restaurants or shops. Some nice spots to have a coffee or lunch but would not count on it for dinner. Enjoyed breakfast in one the small coffee shops. Was excellent plus servings were generous and price was good. Eating in hotel is $$$$$

We stayed in Fota Island Resort on Sunday, March 16th. Unfortunately, the barman was extremely dismissive of us. As a group of six, we approached the bar for food at approximately 7.50pm where we were told there was eight tables waiting to be seated before us and that we could not be guaranteed food as the bar stopped serving food...

€50 for two of us for the hydrotherapy suite. This was a birthday present so I was looking forward to it for ages (Thanks Mam). We were there for almost four hours going between the walking river, hydrotherapy pool, thermal suite and relaxing area. It was fabulous. Next time I am hoping to get a seaweed bath and try the...

Fota Island Hotel is the prefect place to getaway. close to cork but far enough out of the hustle and bustle of everyday city life! Not really into golf but they have great golf facilities! Ideal for nice walks. Good food and atmosphere in the hotel. Staff are pleasent. Bit pricey.

Thank you for your constructive review of Fota Island Resort. I am glad that you enjoyed breakfast and that your room was to your liking. I am deeply sorry about the misleading distance to Fota Wildlife Park on Booking.com. That mistake will be amended asap. Breakfast is also extended to 11am on weekends. The reason we have block hours for... More
