“Not a luxury hotel but good nevertheless.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The staff are very good here, could not be more helpful, but the rooms and common areas are starting to look their age. We were attending a wedding in the hotel itself, and it was great to be able to just go upstairs afterwards!
The food is especially good. The bar prices are very expensive though. I know it is common practice and it is how hotels really cash in on weddings, and it would be unfair to single out this hotel in this context, but we ended up going to the nearby shop and getting a bottle of whiskey to share. Not very classy perhaps, but our small protest at the bar prices.
I would recommend a stay here as it is clean and comfy with friendly staff and good food, but it is not at all special or luxurious, which the website did rather hint at.

Room Tip: Sorry to be negative, but if your room is at the back you may experience quite a lot of noise when s...

Dear 2happycampers2,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your time spent with us.

The décor of our 18th century house hotel is in keeping with Irish Country Hotels, our affiliated Hotel Partner Group, which aims to achieve high quality, traditionally Irish, surrounds.
We are continuously investing in the hotel to ensure that our offering maintains highest standards for our guests, however if you have specific feedback you would like to elaborate on please contact me directly at tcronin@viennawoodshotel.com, I would appreciate your thoughts and we take all customer feedback very seriously.

In relation to the price of drinks, our prices are aligned with the prices of all Cork hotels. What distorts these prices are the low prices offered by off licences whose low over heads allow them to sell at a cheaper rate than hotels nationwide.

Had the bottle of whiskey you purchased and consumed on our premises, been consumed in the privacy of your bedroom, we are saddend by this and would hope that it would not encourage other guests to do so and damage the industry. However if it was consumed within our lounge or function room it was strictly against our hotel policy, as drink is for sale in these areas.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel.

Kind Regards,
Tara

I was recently one of the wedding party at a family wedding held in the Vienna Woods, Glanmire. On the day I was so impressed with the service, attention to detail and efficiency of the entire team. They were so friendly and helpful and clearly being lead by a fantastic manager. Michael Magner was completely hands-on on the day and so attentive to the bridal party. The food was excellent and plentiful! Well done to all the team on delivering a super service. Even if you're not looking for somewhere to hold an event and just want somewhere different to eat out - try Mable Crawfords in Vienna Woods ... same great service and great food!

I attended a wedding in your hotel yesterday, it was my first visit and it won't be my last. The food was absolutely fantastic, the service extremely prompt and efficient, staff very friendly and helpful. On a final note I have to give the highest praise to Michael Magner. He's the most attentive and efficient manager I have ever met. His friendliness and caring manner made the day most enjoyable. Well done Michael.

We recently held-our daughter's christening party in Vienna Woods. From the outset, we knew we had made the right choice. From organising the christening with Michael Magner hotel manager, to the service provided from him and his able team on the day, all of our needs were catered for to such a high standard. We were allowed to decorate the room the evening before which meant we were able to have more time to enjoy our daughter's special day. The staff made the finishing touches on the day in the room which included a personalised menu to include a picture of our daughter together with the meaning of her name. It was these thoughtful touches that made the day so special for us. The food was served in a very professional way and met all our expectations. All guests commented on the quality of the food, and the service provided.The staff were so helpful and could not do enough for us. The best thing about the whole experience was that no one rushed us, we could take our time and enjoy the occasion. From the beginning to end it was a very special day made more so by excellent staff, wonderful food and a superb venue. We will definitely be returning for future celebrations and highly recommend the hotel. Many thanks to all.

The hotel is a little hard to find. The entrance is cliff side with a hairpin turnoff. But once you drive up the road, its a very nice secluded retreat.

The hotel is very quiet and peaceful, and the rooms are a good size by European standards, although a little old amenity wise.

Short 5 minute drive to Cork, and a 15 minute drive to Cobh.

We had the pleasure of staying at Fitzgerald Vienna Woods Hotel for 2 nights on 6th July. This hotel is just a short drive from Cork with many local attractions Middleton, Cobh, Kinsale and West Cork only an hour away. From the time we arrived we felt so much a home. We were met by a very pleasant receptionist Susan who could not have been more helpful. The hotel room was beautifully decorated, we had a fabulous meal in the dining room on Saturday night, all staff were so pleasant and helpful. Thanks to all. Recommend a visit.
