“Great place and economic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We needed accommodation for 4 people plus a child of <6 months for a few nights in/around Cork as we were visiting relations. Hotels were proving to be expensive and did not offer all the facilities we required which included being able to wash/sterilize baby bottles and also make up the feeds as required.
It was suggested that we try and find a holiday villa. This is exactly what Vienna Woods have (they have 8 in total). Each is self-contained and separate from the hotel in their grounds. Each villa had 4 double bedrooms – all en-suite, plus a fitted kitchen with washing machine and tumble dryer. There was a welcome pack of teas/coffees provided. Electricity costs were included in the price and the whole package was very good value for money – even considering that we under-occupied the place. The villa was central heated (we needed it the week we were there!) with under floor heating too.
The hotel staff were extremely accommodating. The hotel offered a full (Irish) breakfast in the main hotel at 10 Euros each and, as we were visiting relations, this was the only meal we required – save boiling a kettle for some tea and the baby’s bottles.
I would certainly stay there again.

Our family recently had a two-week stay at one of the Villas at Vienna Woods. During that time, my wife experienced an illness that impaired her mobility. I am, and will always be, grateful to Darren, Susan, and the other dedicated staff at VW that helped us in numerous ways (some small, some more significant) to get everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The good cheer and service excellence standards are very impressive, and my recommendation is positive in every respect.

A huge thank you to the amazing staff at the Vienna Woods Hotel who went above and beyond to help us create a gorgeous and intimate Baby Naming Ceremony for our son Caleb this past February. Everything from the flowers to the room decor was stunning. As for the food - ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS and the staff were so nice and extremely helpful. Thanks you Michael and all the staff at the Vienna Woods hotel for a day we will remember fondly for many years to come :-)

Also thank you to Emmet Curtin Photography for capturing this day for us so perfectly.

My wife and I stayed for three nights to celebrate her birthday. On arrival we were greeted with friendly, helpful and informative staff. When we entered our lovely,cosy, warm room, a beautiful basket of fresh fruit was laid out along with Happy Birthday balloons.... a lovely personal touch that set the tone for our stay. Breakfast on the three mornings was a real treat thanks to Glynnis and Maura. Dinner each evening was a culinary delight ... superb food, it was evident that the kitchen staff ensured that their guests got the best of Irish produce cooked to perfection! A special thanks to Damien for waiter service delivered with pride of place, courtesy and professionalism... he will rise to higher ranks in the hospitality business! Thanks also to Josie and Susan on Reception .. you made us feel very welcome and furnished us with invaluable local tourist information. Thank you especially to Mr Michael Magner (Director) who ensures that his hotel is bedecked with fresh floral displays and in the evenings that an array of candles creates a unique welcoming/intimate atmosphere. Seán & Bridie Griffin

Dear RainyDaysinIreland,

Thank you for both your reviews of Mabel Crawford’s Bistro and the Hotel, we are delighted you enjoyed your experience with us and glad to hear our staff looked after you so well during your recent stay.

We regret that you were awoken due to noise, as we endeavor to ensure all our guests are provided with a good night’s sleep while staying with us and we take all guest complaints and comments very seriously. When you contacted reception, the guest in question was dully asked to leave that area of the hotel. We did our best to curtail the noise during your stay, however wedding celebrations can lead to a level of noise and enjoyment that we cannot always control.


In relation to your other remarks, we would like to outline that when we took over the property 6 years ago we created a capital expenditure program which included annual renovation works to the 18th century country house. This work is on-going, granted at a slower pace than initially forecasted, due to the economic climate, which unfortunately is out of our control, but changes and improvements are constant here at Vienna Woods Hotel.
The building dates back to 1845, the original architectural features and restored artwork adds an element of old world vintage charm which we have added to and maintain and improve upon year on year.

We endeavor to keep wedding celebrations and events within our purpose built ballroom and bar area and have guests outside the wedding allocated to bedrooms further away from the celebrations. We apologise your sleep was interrupted but glad that you enjoyed the experience with us otherwise.

Regards,
Management at Fitzgeralds Vienna Wood

In Jan 2013, I enjoyed an evening with a friend at the Vienna Woods, Glanmire.
From the moment, I arrived at the hotel, I was very impressed by the welcome and reception from the hotel staff.
During this short visit, my friend and I ate in the Mable Crawford Restaurant. (On this ocassion, i did not stay at the hotel). Previously, the Vienna Woods has hosted a 70th birthday party for a member of my family. The service was excellent. Every request was satisfied and we were very pleased with the evening.
I am very pleased to see that the Vienna Woods is maintaining such a high standard. The decor in the reception and bar is very warm. I highly recommend this hotel.

The food was amazing, with so much of it for both breakfast and dinner. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The bedrooms were clean and spacious. The price was very reasonable for everything included in the valentine special. would definitely recommend!
