Our first night in Skibbereen we started out to dinner and found ourselves at a loss since most restaurants were not taking more guests after 9:00pm. It was recommended that we try the Cork Hotel to see if they were still taking guests. Although it was then well after 9:00pm, the staff was extremely friendly and offered us a table... More

Spent two nights in the West Cork. Breakfast each morning was outstanding and the service so friendly. The eggs Kennedy was delicious and the portion was huge. I also had the brioche French toast with banana, maple syrup and toasted almonds I would drive to Skibereen just for that! Yum! Dinner was also super. The steak was perfectly cooked and... More

We were a large group, decided to sit on the bridge as it was such a lovely day. The restaurant manager came out to us with menu's and sent out waitress for drinks orders. Took too long after this to get our food orders taken (another half an hour). We had to ask for the marble top tables to be... More

I was recently at the West Cork Hotel for Sunday lunch with my family having being there many times before I was looking forward to it.To say I was disappointed is putting it mildly the food was bland and half cold when I asked for a portion of chips the waitress snapped at me that you will have to wait...

Was in Skibbereen over the weekend and decided to eat in the West Cork hotel. What a mistake. It was reasonably busy in there and it took us a while to find a table. We eventually found one in the bar, with no help or even acknowledgement from any staff on duty. We ordered a drink from a very nice... More

Kennedys West Cork hotel has been there for generations. Its aged gracefully, you get a nice family type atmosphere. The staff are a bit disorganised but they are friendly and always able to help. You will need some assistance because it’s not clear if it self-service or waited service. The answer is its self-service. The Sunday roast would get 3.5... More

This has to be the best place in West Cork for breakfast! It is genuinely family-friendly and little ones are welcome. We come regularly with assorted grandchildren and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. There always seems to be unlimited toast and coffee!

We were 4 adults and three children aged 4, 2 and 6 weeks. Very busy - it was mid-August and many other families with small children. Staff as usual very attentive and helpful with "smallies". Adults had starters and mains - all delicious (early bird menu). Two eldest children had pasta from the children's menu and icecream. Children's portions were... More
