The west Cork Hotel recently catered for us at short notice following a family bereavement. The help and advice was first class and the setting, food and the service was excellent. They couldn't have been more helpful.

Eggs Kennedy. French toast with bananas. Everything at this in-hotel restaurant is nicely done. And the staff are really wonderful.

We had breakfast everyday and it was excellent. We had a banquet meal with a group with three different entree choices and everyone enjoyed what they had. Nicely served by a very good staff.

Food okay, but too much on the plate. Service good, waiting time short. I enjoyed my food. You don't need to book a table, busy but still seats empty.

My Husband and I recently attended a wedding in The West Cork Hotel. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it even better as we could go outdoors near the river. The meal was delicious with generous helpings and more than you could eat. There was a big crowd at the wedding and they were able to cater for... More

We ate here twice recently in the evenings. There is a fair choice on the menu and several specials. The food was a little dearer than some of the hotels that we stayed at, but the wine was a good price and quality. Overall we enjoyed our meals with the exception of the chicken supreme, which was very disappointing for... More
