We want to say how absolutely outstanding The Eccles Hotel And Spa were for our wedding on the 21st May 2022. From beginning to end it was faultless. From the very first phone call to Marie their wedding coordinator, she was a joy to deal with. Nothing was ever a problem. The reservations manager Sandra was also fantastic. And after all the planning the wedding day came and the hotel made our day just magical. Each of the staff are so professional, helpful and friendly. The food was in the words of our guests "the best they ever had at a wedding". The location is breathtaking and a beautiful backdrop for photos and again our guests were blown away. We wish we could do it all again next weekend. Richard and I give The Eccles Hotel and Spa 5 stars and more for the best day of our lives. Thank you From Mr and Mrs Sheehan

My friend and I headed to the Eccles Spa last week for the Pamper Me package. We were greeted promptly and after completing some paperwork we were shown to the changing room where luxurious robes awaited us. We each headed to our separate treatment rooms and boy were we pampered! The package included a de-stressing back and neck massage and a 60 minute VOYA Self-Discovery Facial. Never was I so relaxed! While sitting in the hot tub sipping Prosecco we compared notes and we were both delighted with our treatments and the results! We were glowing! Hats off to our aestheticians Ann Marie and Jessica. Lovely girls who made us feel very comfortable and provided excellent service! We were then shown the relaxation room where we enjoyed the view and had a nice chat before we went for a hot shower and to dress for lunch. Lunch was served downstairs and we ordered from the Wellness Menu. Plenty of delicious choices and we enjoyed every bite. The staff was lovely there as well and our every need was seen to. My friend forgot her phone charger and Grainne went out to fetch her own. Very nice. I would highly recommend a visit to the Eccles Spa. The atmosphere and service impeccable. I believe you can even book the hot tub by the half hour. I will definitely be going back!

Stayed here for one night over Easter and it was a fabulous relaxing stay! As a vegan I would give the restaurant 5 stars! Delicious high quality food with several options for each course and very reasonably priced. Even the breakfast in the morning was beyond expectations. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room overlooking the bay was beautiful and even made use of the hot tub! I was already looking up availability during our stay for a return visit.

Smart country house feel. We were given a large round table in the restaurant, nicely laid out which gave the meal a sense of occasion. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. The food was good quality , we'll presented and tasty. A comprehensive menu with something for everyone. Not cheap but given the location and quality of the food, you got what you paid for. Ideal for that special occasion.

I enjoyed every minute spent in the Eccles Hotel : it has kept a lovely atmosphere from its long history (writers like W.B. Yeats and G.B Shaw used to stay there) and it is lovely to enjoy a drink by the two old fireplaces on the groundfloor. But the hotel has modern amenities : all bedrooms have been renovated with taste and bathrooms are brand new. I also I highly appreciated to have a room with a bay view. But the best surprise was the restaurant : the food is just beautiful. The hotel has a creative chef who cooks to perfection. Me and my friends decided to have dinner there every night during our stay and found it hard to choose between all their delicious specialties (I would particularly recommend the seafood). Breakfasts are also beautiful. Last but not least, the staff are nice and helpful. I would totally recommend this hotel for a relaxing and gastronomic break in West Cork.

Myself and my partner just had a very relaxing stay here on Saturday night! We decided to come down from Cork City as we were celebrating our anniversary, check in was quick and easy, our room was lovely, basic but for €150 on a Saturday night I didn't expect too much especially while most hotels are so busy lately! Unfortunately we didn't get to use the Spa but I've heard the seaweed baths are immaculate. We went to the bar for dinner, the staff working were extremely friendly and really helped us feel relaxed, we were given prosecco before our meal to celebrate our anniversary, nice touch! The food was delicious and the view at our table was beautiful! One minor issue we had was when our breakfast order went missing in transit from the kitchen, but that's not saying we didn't enjoy it as when the food did come out it was definitely worth the wait! Thank you to the service staff in the bar Saturday night for making our anniversary so special, we can't wait to come back!

We had a beautiful renevated room. Which had an amazing view. We also had a large room. Breakfast was fine. We also had dinner in the restaurant which was ok. The receptionist was very friendly. The waiteress in the restaurant was not. Loved our location and view. The village looked very closed except for a an open bar, toeristshop and a spar.

We went in the bar for food late, they stop their lunch menu at 4. There were 6 adults & 2 kids & we sat at 2 tables close together. I’d had the fish cakes there 1 & 1/2 years ago & they were delicious, so I had them again today. They did not let me me down! So tasty. Others in our party had the burger & the Frito misto. Big thumbs up from everyone. The server was lovely, bringing the kids a colouring pack over when they sat down. All in all, the food is delicious & the service was lovely in a gorgeous setting. Definitely worth a visit.
