We had the most special day celebrating our wedding reception in The Eccles Hotel , Glengarriff. The staff went above and beyond to ensure all of our guests and family had a brilliant time. The wedding co ordinator , Marie , was so helpful ,particular in the lead up to the wedding , during such uncertain times. Both the service and the food was exceptional. We are so delighted we chose The Eccles for our big day.

I found the reservation staff to be rude, and should have learned my lesson and stopped there. The reception staff are cold, unwelcoming and unhelpful. One would expect top-notch service from a hotel claiming to be 4 star. The wifi was poor,, which made doing business difficult. The food was amazing, the deluxe room was spacious and clean, with a very large accessible bathroom; but honestly...I would not drop a cent here again solely because the service is so poor. Why pay to be treated as if you are an inconvenience and a bother. Covid has put many places under pressure, but reading previous reviews it is clear that their customer service was seriously lacking prior to the pandemic. In future I will try Casey's as the food the two times I dined there was very nice, and the staff welcoming. I regret spending money at Eccles to have them treat me so poorly.

After months and months of isolation, we finally managed to escape to the Eccles Hotel set in a beautiful location overlooking the Bantry Bay We spent 2 nights here in a warm and welcoming room with fabulous views of the bay. The room was classy. Very cosy and clean surf warm trendy colours, yet preserving the history. We ate the most fabulous breakfast and dinner at the hotel on both nights in a safe covid setting. The food was amazing, as good as any Michelin Star restaurant that we’ve experienced before. The scallops and array of taste sensations beside them were fabulous! It was art and science on a plate. My husband is still talking about the fillet steak! The homemade Irish soda bread that accompanied breakfast was soo good. From the minute we arrived until we checked out, the staff were warm friendly and so obliging, especially reception. Our table waiter Patrick was so professional, as was the Barman Adrian, who was great craic and the cocktail 🍹 expert. Can’t wait to return when the lockdown ends.

We stayed at Eccles for 3 nights enjoying breakfast each morning and dinner in the hotel on two occasions. The food is very good but could be presented a bit better. We sampled a broad range of dishes and we were impressed on each occasion with the exception of the soup. Not sure what happened with it as it was tasteless. All in all, would recommend staying at the hotel which is professionally run, with great service and located in a beautiful part of the world. Make sure to have the porridge in the morning with some honey and compote. Fantastic!

We arrived half an hour early and were greeted by an unhelpful and rude staff member. We were told we're couldn't check in until 3pm but other guests who arrived at the same time or just after us were allowed to check in and were greeted in a friendly manner. We felt like we were ingnored and had to ask another member of staff if we were allowed check in. The room was very small and in much need of a makeover. The food in the hotel restaurant was overpriced and wasn't nice. What annoyed us the most was we had received a call from the hotel the day before our stay and were asked if we would like to book breakfast and dinner. We were told dinner was €35 pp but when we went for dinner we were told that was not an option. Overall huge disappointment.
