I went for Sunday lunch in the Garryvoe Hotel with my 88 year old mother today. We had many pleasant meals here in the past and were looking forward to our lunch. I ordered Gluten free toastie and a soup to come together. After some time the soup arrived on its own with wheat bread and no toastie. When I... More

The staff are extremely friendly,from reception to the breakfast room staff to the leisure centre staff,it's a really... More

I stayed at Garryvoe for a wedding and everything was above expectations. At the wedding, the banqueting room was above average and the food was by far the best function food I ever had in Ireland. The bedroom was spacious, comfortable, clean and modern. The leisure centre and all the common areas were also of very high standard.

Called in here from a beautiful beach walk and decided to have some food. It has some lovely views and the seating area whilst not large is adequate. I ordered plaice with mash for my 7yr old, my daughter had soup and toasted sandwiches while I ordered the Cod and chips. The food arrived without much of a wait and... More

Booked Garryvoe as we were dropping our daughter off at Ballymaloe Cookery School. We were running a bit late and I popped into the hotel to tell them we would still like to eat but needed to get daughter to Ballymaloe. Receptionist was very efficient and spoke with kitchen to tell them we would be back in half hour. When... More

Just back from a lovely visit to garryvoe with my boyfriend. On this wet, flood stricken, windy evening we said we would go to Garryvoe for a hot chocolate accompanied by a dessert as a treat! I got a lovely, frothy, large hot chocolate and for John's dessert he got a tasty warm chocolate fudge cake with orange marzcapone (sp?)..... More

Attended a wedding here and decided to stay 2 nights to make a weekend of it. The hotel is in a lovely location with gorgeous views of the bay. This was my favourite thing about the hotel. Inside, staff were very friendly and helpful but I felt a few things were lacking. Room (106) was fairly tired looking and not... More

Very comfortable hotel. We had a very nice room with sea views. One of the best things about our stay was that our room was nice and warm and the public areas of the hotel were also warm. This is very important on a winter break. Lovely location we had dinner in the hotel and that was also good. We... More
