I have stayed at the oriel house for 4 nights alone. The room is decent size and clean. The bed is comfortable and large sized. I enjoyed the view from both my room and even better from the restaurant. The breakfast had a good variety and was really good.

I recently visited this leisure center and was very impressed by the facilities and professionalism of the staff. The manager there James is very knowledgeable, and takes a really personal interest in customers particularly if you have any injuries - its rare to come across this level of professionalism at a gym.

Why not 5* because the wifi didn't work well in the room and the first night there was a wedding and it was loud and you could hear it in the room. What did we like: the room - spacious. The spa and gym, great. Room service / food - goats cheese pizza, yummy!! The staff - friendly. The bed... More

We were recently in Ballincollig and decided to visit the Oriel for a carvery lunch. After starting our meals, we found that the roast beef we were served was inedible, fatty and full of gristle. In fairness, the manager promptly arranged for alternative meals for us. Having said that, neither of the replacement meals would have been our normal choices... More

'Nice Leisure Club with friendly, helpful and approachable staff. 'Recovering from devastating and life changing injuries received as a result of a hill walking accident I have worked with James and have achieved gains which I certainly did not believe were achievable. The gains were boosted by a constructive and supportive attitude at all times. James is an excellent trainer... More

A really nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room was a generous size albeit with a limited view. The restaurant was an absolute treat. Lovely decor and a beautiful setting. Wasn't expecting panoramic countryside views! The pool and leisure facilities were great although the changing rooms were a bit cramped and dated. I'd gladly stay here again.

Stayed for two nights, it is a lovely hotel and a great base to explore Cork from. The rooms are large and clean and very quiet so great nights sleep. Breakfast was very good, I loved the choice of poached and scrambled eggs instead of the usual fried and swimming in grease eggs. I would have no problem in recommending... More
