We came down to cork for a family communion and as we arrived found that the hotel was also hosting the communion so the car park was packed . we left our car and booked in.The staff were very helpful and had no problem in getting a travel cot even though i had forgot to book one. Our room was a family one and we had 3 single beds and a double bed . The room was very clean and we were all very happy with it as we were not on top of each other :-) . We left and arrived back later that evening . The travel cot was there and had even been made up not always the case in other hotels we have stayed in. We got room service which was very nice even if we did order at 5 to nine. Had a great nights sleep if a bit hot in the room could do with air con!!! Breakfast was lovely had everthing you could have wanted and the staff were very helpful . we found a bouncy castle in the garden and the children had a great time befor the trip home. I like that the hotel is being eco friendly and that they tell you about it in your room good for them. we will be back again and will stay longer the next time.

I stayed in this hotel with my two children aged 10 and 8. From the moment we entered the hotel we were made feel so welcome. Rarely have I experienced such service before, from the excellent receptionist to the waiter at dinner and the ladies in the breakfast- room the next morning.
The room the children and I shared was spacious and cosy. The food we had in the bar was delicious and the staff so friendly to the children. We would recommend this hotel to anybody...

I stayed her with friends over easter & again found the hotel to be profession, friendly, good food & clean. It was great to wake up on Easter Sunday to find Easter Eggs for us. All guests recieved Easter Eggs we found out which was a very nice thought & well planned as other hotels we have stayied in over Easter did not do this at all, not even for kids.
Would recommade Fitzgeralds Vienna Hotel as on my second visit they remembered me.

Overall, a beautiful hotel, with staff that are extremely helpful and personable at every level. Nothing was too much to ask for and the level of attentive service offered was much appreciated. Rooms are beautifully laid out and I really felt the whole lounge area was full of an old worldly charm with a plush finish. Really beautiful, congrats to the whole team there.

We stayed here for a family wedding in January and came home to my 3 young kids more exhausted than i went. The room we were in had a faulty radiator that made a very loud bubbling and banging noise all night. I went down to reception at 7 am next morning (waited till then having managed some broken sleep because i genuinely hate moaning). The receptionist turned off the heat in that area of hotel and so we had peace for few hours. Unfortunately the following 2 nights were the same story, called the porter but nthing he could do and couldn't move us as hotel was full. The last night was made much worse by a function that was being held in the hotel and literally roaring and shouting in the corridor from 2am onwards. The porter came up but they told him to [--] off and he had absolutely no backup. 4 members of my family refused to pay for the last night as it was that bad. We were unfortunate to have had the noisy radiator on top of that. We recieved a special offer flyer from this hotel recenty but I would rather sleep in my back yard than go back there.

Thanks you for your feedback and the opportunity to address your concerns. We did have unfortunate problems with our heating system during the months of January. The severe freezing Ireland experienced this winter caused hotels, and indeed many homes various problems. Our own heating system was affected by freezing pipes and damaged pumps which made our system completely seize on a couple of occasions and caused problems where our heating system was not working correctly while we waited the replacement parts. Our heating system ended up working on low pressure causing heating in the hotel for a few weeks. Additionally as hot water came through frozen sections of pipes this also made strange noises as the ice pockets were hit hot by hot water. You will be glad to hear our heating system was repaired soon after the freezing conditions eased. (We have our fingers crossed that next winter will not be as cold as this year)

In response to the noisy guests in our hotel corridor on the last night of your stay, we regret that you had to experience this. We were already aware of this isolated incident. We genuinely wish for all our guests to be as comfortable and safe as possible when they stay with us. We did identify the people who caused the disruption and have met in person with them. The people involved are from a very reputable corporation, who took their celebrations too far. It was a once off incident in which we were very disappointed and the corporation was very embarrassed. I would like to assure you that this is not a normal occurrence at Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods. Our standard operating for this type of occurrence is for the Night porter and/or Duty manager to speak to disruptive or loud guests and try to guide them away from public areas, while of course bearing in mind their own personal safety. There is only so much we can do in these circumstances when one is trying to deal with an intoxicated person. Further measures since this particular night include framed notices in our bedroom corridors asking guests to consider other sleeping guests after dark. While no damage or misdemeanor was committed, the hotel will shortly be adding additional CCTV cameras for guest security and a mischief deterrent.

Again thanks for your comments, if you do decide to revisit the hotel please advise us of your arrival and we would be delighted to arrange for you to stay in one of our suites.

We stayed in one of the villas, 4 adults and 3 children aged 6 and 7.

The bedrooms were amazing, roomy and comfortable, with en-suite, lovely views, 4 double rooms to easily cater for the 7 of us. The problem we had was with the dining/living area - the dining table only sat 6 people and the living area just 4!! Also the villa we were in had lovely french doors that could have expanded the living space but unfortunately opened onto the driveway into the villas, shame they didn't think to use the beautiful views at the other side of the house...

I would recommend the villas, but only for a maximum of 6 people.

Hello Da!sy-111
Many thanks for your recent stay with us, and thanks for your recommendations regarding the seating in our Holiday Villas. The current seating for the dining area and living area is based on what Failte Ireland recommend for the 4 star grading we hold. In general we find the seating is adequate for the group sizes staying in the Villas, but we take your practical point on board as it is a real situation that we did not anticipate. Six people as you say is the ideal number for a longer stay. The Management Team at the hotel here has discussed the seating provided in the Villas and in future where group of 6 or more are using a Villas we will offer additional seating if required. The French doors that are a feature on all the Villas, you will have noticed, opens onto an individual patio area where during the summer months each Villa is furnished with an additional outside Table and 6 chairs.

Again thanks for your 4 star review, we always welcome practical feedback. Please let us know when you return to Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods Holiday Villas and we will ensure the adequate seating is provided for your group.
