Great food and great service however the toilets and terrace area could do with a major overhaul. With such a gorgeous view it's a pity not more done with the terrace area. It could be so much nicer/cleaner. We also walked down to the beach and lot of rubbish at the bottom of the steps within the complex.

We popped in for food, an unexpected group of 8 people. The barleycove hotel and restaurant couldn’t have been more accommodating for us. Showed us to a lovely table with a great view over the beach. Food for everyone was delicious, the calamari are amazing here. Children were very happy with pasta and chicken options, and there was loads of room on their huge solid tables for everyone. Plaice and prawn dishes were great too, we always love seafood where you can see the sea while you eat.

On a day trip to mizen peninsula, popped in here for lunch after a visit to the beach. Dined outside on the terrace/balcony with a stunning view of barleycove beach. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. A good find!

Really enjoyed our meal here on a sunny Saturday evening. Ask for a table on the balcony and you won’t be disappointed. Beautiful scenery and the food is very good too. Fish and chips was lovely and garlic prawns were delicious.

At short notice we needed to change our plans and Mark could not have been more accommodating and customer focused. It is rare in this industry to have such top notch customer service. Every time we visit Barleycove Beach Hotel we are blown away by the experience and this time was no different. Thank you to Mark and Team and looking forward to a return visit soon.

Stayed in Barleycove Hotel for four nights. Found it very relaxing. Myself and my wife enjoy walking so after the first night we walked out to Mizen Head, second day we walked to Three Castles well worth a visit and on the third day walked to Crookhaven. The Staff and Manager were very helpful. Freshly cooked breakfast each morning and one of the best parts was the view from the bedroom window each Morning.
