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... read 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

We enjoyed a lovely Sunday carvery here. The portions were very big and the food was tasty. There were lots of attentive staff present who were helpful and friendly. Perfect spot for a Sunday lunch for a young family.

On a local's suggestion, we headed down to the West Cork Hotel. Skipped starters and went straight for the main course; pan-fried hake, asparagus and grilled tomatoes. It was cooked to perfection!! Just needed a side of steamed veg to make it a filling meal and we were very happy. The restaurant is nicely laid out, bright and very relaxing.... More

The Breakfast in The West Cork Hotel is always excellent, great Bacon, Sausages and Soft Fried Eggs served with plenty Toast with Butter and Marmalade and a Big Pot of Tea, you can ask for no more and Sheila is always helpful and service is brisk. The Best Breakfast around. Skibbereen worth a visit you will not be dissapointed.

Always love the food in the West Cork hotel! Have tried a lot of options on the menu, but my two favourites are the open crab on brown bread and the Malaysian curry. Both are absolutely divine! The house Sauvignon blanc is also divine! Highly recommend :-)

We had three breakfasts and one dinner included in our package. We also had bar food one night. Our included dinner was from the table d'hote menu with good choices. The bar food and breakfasts were delicious with again a good choice of hot food served at the table and also a contintental buffet all served with a smile.

My family and I had dinner on Thursday evening. We didn't have a reservation but were instantly seated and rapidly catered to. I had the seafood chowder starter and wings main with a side salad. My husband had homemade vegetable soup starter followed by the fish and chips and my son had the fruit cup followed by the pasta which... More
