We got a room with three beds in it (not needed), room really really needed a renovation about 10 years ago. View from three windows was better only if compared to a brick wall in front. However the staff was very friendly and welcoming, five star to them! Perhaps "normal" rooms are neat and tidy.

This is a lovely hotel in Skibbereen. Food was great, great fresh fish & chips and I think the best apple & blueberry crumble I have ever had. I spent a few days here doing a course which was held in the hotel. Staff were friendly and service was good. I would recommend this hotel and will visit it again...

Came for lunch as a group of approx 80. The Hotel served up lovely turkey and ham dinners with all the trimmings. The meal was very tasty and considering the size of the group served I was very impressed. Would definitely recommend for large gatherings
