Thoroughly enjoyed a meal for 2. The food was great and the service was very efficient. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel itself is lovely! The outdoor seating area on the old bridge was beautiful overlooking the river.

The west Cork Hotel recently catered for us at short notice following a family bereavement. The help and advice was first class and the setting, food and the service was excellent. They couldn't have been more helpful.

We had breakfast everyday and it was excellent. We had a banquet meal with a group with three different entree choices and everyone enjoyed what they had. Nicely served by a very good staff.

Food okay, but too much on the plate. Service good, waiting time short. I enjoyed my food. You don't need to book a table, busy but still seats empty.

My Husband and I recently attended a wedding in The West Cork Hotel. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it even better as we could go outdoors near the river.
