We stayed in the hotel on the June bank holiday Sunday night. We had attended a function there that day. On our first attempt to check in we waited about 10 mins and rang the bell no one came so we went off. On our second attempt we managed to get checked in about 4pm but when we went to... More

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused during your stay here at the Munster Arms Hotel. The June Bank Holiday weekend is a very very busy weekend for us and indeed the town of Bandon - The hotel was completely booked out by a group on Saturday night, where late checkouts caused the delay on Sunday. We do understand... More

I was in the Munster Arms in a group of 23 men for a function on Sunday 12/6. It was the perfect end to an enjoyable day. We had booked a private room for a one course meal & sing-song. The meal of Corned Beef and veg was excellent and there was plenty more veg for those who wanted it.... More

Old world hotel with history.If you want rows and rows of identical rooms on identical floors with a sanitised minimalist look, go elsewhere. If you want charm, character and homeliness, then the Munster Arms is for you. A great spot to base a tour of West Cork. Highly recommended.

Booked on booking.com on April 25 for a stay on May 21. Arrived at reception and no sign of our names on that night's list. Receptionist could see my booking on her computer but nobody had transferred it to the written diary. Simply told me there was nothing she could do as they were fully booked. Manager was "unavailable". When... More

We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused upon your arrival at our hotel. Unfortunately, all of our rooms were fully booked on your date of arrival, with a double booking being no fault of your own. We accept responsibility for the mistake made on our side and appreciate that it should not have happened nor does it usually happen.... More

Nice hotel, really comfortable beds, clean and tidy, staff really nice, breakfast was disappointing but sufficient , hotel seemed to be understaffed, plenty of stairs to climb to your room but that was a small complaint

This is an extremely basic hotel, lacking in character and has no lift. It is inexpensive which is a help and very central to the town of Bandon. If you need to overnight in Bandon you will find a clean bed and a good shower here. However it is very ordinary and basic. The bar has no good whisky which... More

I stayed here for one night, September 24, had a lovely dinner and a great sleep! I must have been jet lagged because I slept all morning. I was able to leave my suitcase while I explored the town. Everyone was pleasant and friendly.

We found this city, Bandon, one evening in August, during our tour of Ireland. That evening we had trouble finding a place to sleep. Then, we stopped in town .... ugly ... and without any appeal. The hotel had rooms. Chambers of low and affordable price. One very annoying thing was the disco nearby that created noise all night. Very... More

We are sorry that the city of Bandon was not to your liking and that you found it ugly. However the town is nearly 500 yerars old and has a very rich history. We are glad you find the hotel good value for money, however if the music from the nearby public houses upset you . More

Only stayed for 1 night but was very happy. Check in was quick and efficient. Very polite and cheerful staff that helped with all our inquiries. Room was dated but clean. The bed was comfortable. There was powerful shower in a big bathroom. The breakfast was excellent. Would definitely call again.
