Salmon & Beef

Stopped here on the Easter break on Sunday afternoon. Eat in the bar area, pleasant surroundings. Had the Beef, extremely tender, my partner had the salmon, it was like butter, moist, tasty and one of the best she tasted in some time. Will be back

We visited the West Cork Hotel this morning for breakfast, and when we first arrived we were shown to a table. The waitress laying our table just threw the cutlery and plates down in front of us very messily. When the food arrived it was poorly presented, and quite meagre for what we had payed! This is not the worst... More

After a very long day stopped in the hotel for dinner, I was not disappointed after reading the reviews on trip advisor. I have goats cheese salad for starters which was great and roast lamb which was also great. Staff are so helpful and friendly great job well done.

as I live in Skibbereen, this is a 'fail safe' place to eat lunch or dinner or just for a coffee. Great value in a nice location.

One gets the sense that the hotel is actively engaged in generating local as well as passing business...there is that certain buzz ... On this basis we returned the following evening for dinner in...

After this we came back for a Sunday carvery which was just lovely. My third experience was an evening dinner. I love the chowder and the... More

I had a pork chop with a delicious sauce. It was the best pork I had tasted in a long time. The cooked breakfasts were freshly cooked and there was a wide choice of other foods available as well.
