“Superb Outdoor Catering Service”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Based on a reliable recommendation, we had the very good fortune of selecting Vienna Woods Hotel to provide catering services for my daughter's recent 21st birthday party held in the timeless setting of Sunday's Well Tennis Club by the banks of the Lee in Cork. Michael Magnier and his staff at Vienna Woods as well as Michael and Teresa at Sunday's Well were exceptionally helpful in planning the menu and the event. On the evening of the party and with military like precision, the Vienna Woods Chefs waiters and full support team took over the kitchen facilities in Sundays Well and bang on time, served up a really wonderful buffet meal. Afterwards the kitchen was cleaned and left in a spotless condition. Three weeks later we are still receiving compliments from the guests attending the party for the quality of the food and quality of the service. We wish to pass those on to Vienna Woods team and strongly recommend them as outdoor catering service providers.

Conference/day
Clean and tidy but rooms and corridors had worn carpets, marked walls and chipped and dirty paintwork.
Doors opened and closed in draughts and the handle came off the inside of the door of our conference room.
In need of a major facelift out and in.

Dear travelman98,

Thank you for taking your time to write your review.

In relation to your remarks with regards to the décor of the hotel, 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. We are currently planning on putting new carpet in the whole hotel area and lobby which is in line with your suggestions.

Also, 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.

Thank you once again for your feedback, we take customer direction very seriously and continuously look for ways to improve the experience for our guests.

Kind Regards,
All the team here at Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel

This gem is tucked a bit out of the way if you come in through Glanmire proper, but easily accessed from the motorway, and with the private drive off the road up a hill and surrounded by trees, it feels more secluded than it is.

The food is exceptional. While the dining area may not have astounding views like some other hotels, the myriad nooks in the dining area make eating a cozy and thoroughly enjoyable experience. As good as the food is, the service is equally so. Staff meet each request promptly and courteously, and aren't reluctant in the least to go the extra mile, even attempting to accommodate a surprisingly finicky four-year-old...and actually getting her food she would eat.

In all, I only have two complaints for this lovely property. One, the car park is a bit undersized for the amount of business they do, and two, their wireless internet scheme is atrocious. It's available at no charge, but several customers staying during the same period we visited had major difficulty getting online, and it was no small feat for even the most computer savvy.

If I were visiting while on business, I might reconsider, but for a romantic or even a family holiday, this hotel is fabulous.

We went to a wedding here last year and were really looking forward to the break away. Had dinner on the first night which was alright, but my steak was way overdone and what has now become the norm the manager didnt do a table check so i went hungry.
The wedding meal on the other hand was exceptional from start to finish. The staff are obviously well polished in banquetting and all knew their role. The speeches before dinner, which was already late for unknown reason would wreck my head as a chef, but the kitchen took it in their stride. (please dont do all the speeches if your having a late wedding, people are hungry). The bar staff during the night were fab and the residents bar staff were the friendliest i ever met. Downright professional. Had to pay for my first night manky steak on checkout but you cant expect everything, or can you?
Got an apology phonecall a couple of weeks later but that wasnt giving me my cash back.
Over all, if you live near cork book the Vienna Woods.

Thank you to all the management and staff for the most wonderful experience of Irish natural hospitality on attending my niece's recent wedding not to mention the culinary delights it was so refreshing to see friendly and courteous staff working so diligently with a constant smile on their faces. It really is a credit to the often maligned but worldwide renowned phrase céad míle fáilte to know that one can still experience this in The Vienna Woods in Glanmire it was our first visit and we can't wait to get back.

We stayed here for two nights this week and had a lovely stay. The room was superb and the staff extremely friendly and helpful throughout. The place is so peaceful and quiet in the mornings and only a few minutes from the city at the same time. Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends in a heartbeat.
