I recently stayed in the fota island hotel on a family holiday. When we arrived, we were delighted with the look of the hotel. The staff seemed friendly enough and the service was appeared to be reasonable. We went up to the room and i wanted to put my baby's dinner in the mini bar to keep it cool. I... More

I have played approx 240 golf courses in Ireland and this one is certainly up there with the best. Unfortunitely the hotel is not so good.I detest a hotel bar that is more of a restaurant where children even babies are there until after 9.30pm.I was told the swimming pool was for children between and parents between 5 and 6...

Stayed here midweek for one night. There was a mixup with our room and we ended up getting a complimentary upgrade to a suite and VIP passes to the spa.The girl Ali we dealt with at the front desk was so friendly and helpful she couldn't have done anymore for us. The suite was amazing, very spacious, suited us perfectly... More

Well we're to start. Firstly bring a good pair of walking shoes you will need them. You can spend hours walking around the recommended trails or off on your own adventure around the grounds. There is not only the wildlife park but the gardens with there own walk ways and the hotel grounds to enjoy. If going with a family... More

Lovely location with nice spa and golf club, everyone is very helpful. The site consists of a 5 star hotel & several well equipped lodges. It is located close to Cork & Cobh, also on FOTA Island there is a zoo which is very good.

we have just returned from 3 nights at Fota Island and it was all good, from the food, the golf and the spa.. The 19th at the golf course was really good and excellent service.. We also stayed in a Lodge which was spotlessly clean and really great place to stay

Have just returned from a stay at Fota island Resort. Wonderful Golf Course but I felt that the level of service in the hotel was patchy. Lovely receptionists who welcomed us warmly , some of the bar staff were very good but I think that the restaurants efforts at breakfast service need to be reconsidered. Having to wait 25 minutes...
