Informal lunch with family - very good food, presentation wonderful. The staff attentive and friendly. Highly recommended. View from restaurant looks over lake and part of the golf club - stunning view. Will return.

Service for Sunday lunch was terrible. Imagine 8Euro for a starter of 1 ( one) spring roll and a few rocket leaves, not worth 4Euro. Thai curry was almost 16 Euro. Diabolical, would not go again.

Recently attended a daytime conference here. A set menu was served at lunchtime and the food was served by efficiently by friendly staff, as expected at such events. The food was faultless- well cooked and nicely presented. But the real treat was the bar food that evening!! The weather was awful and we decided to stay in the hotel for... More

We were rained out in Killarney so drove to here and played the Barryscourt course in perfectly dry conditions. A nice layout in good condition.

My buddy and I had the fortunate chance to get in a round while on vacation in Ireland when the wives decided to go shopping for the day in Cork. The hotel concierge recommended Fota Island Golf Resort because it was nearby and we could get a tee time the very next day. Everything about the facility from the pro... More

To be fair, everything about the course, from the welcome, through the layout to its condition could not be faulted. Therefore, I reconsidered my original "average" review... Factors influencing my original choice was the "restaurant service" and a (possibly unfair) comparison with other courses played on a week long golfing road trip. The Deerpark is an enjoyable Parkland Course which... More

Located on the Fota Island Resort, the golf club is open for food throughout the day. The food is fine but portions are small for the price as it is the setting that is really being paid for.
