I stay at the Fota on a regular basis when visiting Cork for business. My company has a manufacturing facility quite close to the resort. Fota used to be a Sheraton property and it comes across very much like a better than average American hotel like a Sheraton or Hilton. I understand, however, that the hotel was recently purchased by a Chinese investment group so it will be interesting to see what changes they make.
I'm not a golfer but I do enjoy walking or jogging the expansive grounds and trail network on the property. During the summer and on Bank Holiday weekends, the hotel can be chock full with families and lots of small children. The rest of the year, however, it is typically a business hotel with the occasional wedding party thrown in.
All in all, I like the Fota, which is good I suppose, because I'm sure I will be back again in 2014.More
