We had a mid-week family lunch here recently for ten people. The food was excellent, with a good choice, and very generous portions. Very good value and friendly helpful staff.

On a nostalgia trip to West Cork we popped in for dinner. We found that the hotel had managed both to modernise and retain the best elements that we had remembered from our last visit 8 years ago. Whilst waiting for the dinning room to open we enjoyed a drink in the bar by an open fire. Our meal was excellent, I especially recommend the seafood chowder. Everyone we came into contact with was welcoming and helpful. It is always risky returning after many years but the West Cork has never let us down since we first visited 40 years ago. We will return.....sometime!

Comfortable well appointed rooms (en suite) at reasonable price (60 ~Euros). Good friendly staff and great food. Amazing selection of choices for breakfast, crumbly homemade scones with strawberry jam & cream for tea and excellent selection of food for dinner. Each evening there are theme meals from 11 - 15 Euros including a drink (beer or wine) plus a la carte. Can recommend the fish pie. Portions are large so don't expect to lose weight here!

Room Tip: If you want quiet room suggest back of the hotel where you also get lovely view over the River Ilen.
