My wife and I popped in on a rainy day and asked if there was food available as it was just out of lunchtime. The answer was yes and a menu produced, so we settled ourselves down and chose toasted sandwiches one on white and one on brown plus a pot of tea. Well to our surprise the sandwiches arrives...

We booked 2 suites and got 2 family rooms it seemed as if the single bed had been taken out so making a large double. When I stayed in London my suite had a separate bedroom and that is what constitutes a suite. The room cleaning was poor on the second day we had to ask why the room hadn't... More

We had several bad experiences during our stay. The condition of the outside of the hotel was disappointing. The first room we were given was older than we expected and in the front part of the hotel, where there was noise from the road. Another guest was able to open our room door with their room key, which made us... More

West Cork food always pleasing and top class since my first visit in the 1960's. Owners changed from John to Tim but food retained its traditional high standard. Staff always friendly and service first class. Rain or shine, just like our Olympian rowers all here "pull like a dog" to make the "West Cork Hotel" a pleasant and memorable place... More

I stayed there as part of a tour and several of us became sick from the dampness and moldy air. The hotel is right on the water and has been there a while so the dampness has invaded. The breakfasts were wonderful and the room comfortable, The town has an amazing heritage center which gives a very good explanation of... More

There are very few places in Ireland that will beat this hotel. The staff here have a charm and warmth that will lead you to believe you are home from home. The food is as good as your granny would make and being West Cork the fish dishes are Michelin star quality. To management at this hotel... Don't ever change... More

This is an old hotel, you can tell it was a place "to be" back in the day. They are still in the middle of lots of renovations, so great sign. Here's the deal; our room had been renovated, great tile in the bathroom and plenty of room. But little things like the lighting the the bathroom was so bad... More

Was here for a staff night with work. Good fun night. Good was plentiful and consider they were catering for so many people was decent enough but nothing special. Good for a stay with a group of friends but wouldn't consider it plush or anyway fancy.
