We had a lovely, very comfortable room overlooking the river. It's a short walk to anything in town as well as to the Famine Cemetery. The kitchen seemed to be open all the time and you could eat in the dining room, bar or welcoming lobby area. A great choice for one or a group of people. If you really...

Recently added onto, the building occupies the site of the former railway bridge, which makes for a very charming extension to the bar facilities. Function rooms and an excellent kitchen. Rooms are comfortable and casual, no expectations placed upon one to be pressing clothes although hangers are provided. The historical centre across the street is a vital link to the...

If you are looking for a warm Irish welcome then this is the place to stay! Newly refurbished room, comfy bed and view over the river. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as I was trying to trace family history. Tim, the owner, went out of his way to try and help with this. My only criticism is...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the West cork Hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. No fridge or safe in the rooms though and the wifi coverage in the bedrooms was not great. Breakfast was excellent and the pub food was good. Parking at the rear of the hotel with plenty of spaces.

This was a bit of a funky hotel right on the river and they take advantage of an old bridge for outdoor seating. Pretty cool! The hotel staff were great and super helpful. Two cautions: 1. They put us in a wheel-chair accessible room which had some weird things in it. The weirdest is that the tiny airplane-bathroom sized sink...
