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

We had tried to stay in this hotel but it was fully booked for the dates we wanted which was a real shame. We went for dinner and the atmosphere was great. You can eat in the restaurant or the bar. We chose the bar which was busy but not crowded. The food was good, I had scampi, salad and... More
