Their lunch time carvery is the best I've been to in any hotel. Always good choices. They have a la carte menu also. Sunday is always very busy so best to book. The desserts are to die for. . Great chef in Christian. .

We had trouble getting through by phone to other restaurants in the area so we settled on Kennedy's. We had a great meal which was so much better than we were anticipating. I definitely recommend this place for food.

She made our visit even more special with her humour and warmth of character. Food was delicious, tasty hot and well presented. There was enough tea, coffee and toast to last us all day! Very...

We were staying in the West Cork Hotel with my parents for a few days. We ate there on a few occasions and really enjoyed every meal. The Sea Bass was just delightful as was the scampi. The steak was perfectly cooked and all the accompaniments were freshly cooked and good. The staff really make the experience all the more... More

Our tour group spent three nights at the West Cork Hotel and the hotel & meals were great. I'm on gluten-free and limited dairy diet. In advance of our arrival, the manager actually went to the supermarket and bought soy milk, gluten-free cereal & bread & porridge(oatmeal). The restaurant staff would offer me the bread to have with soup when... More
