“Perfect start to our Irish holiday”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

Everything about our one night stay at Bayview Hotel was perfect! We stayed the night of 01 October and wish we had stayed longer. The room was extremely comfortable with a magical view. We initially prebooked the hotel without breakfast but decided to have breakfast at 15 Euros each. The food was sensational - and the service was perfect. Adrien in the restaurant where breakfast was served could work at any top class hotel anywhere in the world!! I think we had our best Eggs Benedict ever! The raspberries, yoghurt and croissants could not be faulted. We also extend our compliments to Siobhan at the Reception Desk - she offered a genuine welcome to us and is a great asset to the Hotel. Hotel staff from around the world could learn a lot from Siobhan. We recommend this hotel to anyone!

My friend and I stayed two nights at the Bayview. Our room was wonderful, overlooking the sea and harbor. Everyone was very accomodating and answered all our needs and requests. Exceptional views from room.
We also spent 2 nights at their sister hotel, Garryvoe hotel. Also exceptional service, beautiful sea view room, very large, and wonderful bathroom. We also had 2 breakfasts and two dinners at hotel. All were excellent and included in a senior package we chose. We had choice of anything on the menu and service was just great. The food was exceptional, nicely presented and servers were outstanding. They met our every need.
This is a wonderful area to stay in, by the sea and Ballycotton harbor. We enjoyed the area, the hotels and the amenities very much. Would love to go back and spend more time. Very convenient to many attractions .

Room Tip: We did pay an upgrade room fee at the Garryvoe for a sea view room. It was worth it. The Bayview roo...

We decided to have our wedding reception at the Bayview based on the stunning views. I am delighted to say that the quality of service and food easily matched these. From Stephen's patience and advice on planning our wedding reception to the fantastic efforts made by Maria, Margaret and the two James on the day itself I have to give the Bayview my strongest recommendation. It was perfect. Our sincerest thanks, Marc and Arlene Fritsche.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter.

I can't sing the praises of the staff in the Bayview highly enough, the service is impeccable from check-in to check-out.
The hotel itself is positioned on the waters edge overlooking Ballycotton village and the harbour, with views of the bay out to sea over the lighthouse to die for.
Food is amazing...breakfast, lunch and dinner all impressed.
No pool, but sea swimming is on the doorstep in summer and the sister hotel close by has full Spa facilities.
It's a good half hour drive from Cork city but well worth it, in fact I stayed in July this year and went back again in October.
Everything is good but the staff really make the difference, Margaret, Adrian, Lisa to name but a few.

From the moment we arrived, we were awestruck with the awesome vast ocean views! Water, water everywhere! The location, staff (especially Margaret O.), and entire property were fantastic and spotless. It was like stepping back in time to a bygone era of elegance and comfort beyond ordinary these days! Everyone was friendly and engaging. Fabulous food, a cozy atmosphere in the bar, sophisticated dining room and decor throughout describes this most wonderful hotel! If you're looking for a room with a view, you've found it!!! My husband and I can't wait to return for our next anniversary!

Room Tip: First floor rooms with a balcony overlooking the ocean are magnificent!
