Stayed here recently on business. The staff were all nice and well presented. Food was great with a good selection. The room however wasn't the greatest. Lots of dust and cobwebs behind the lockers. I didn't have a functioning shower in my room just a bath. The window was badly cracked but it didn't really effect me. The bed however...

Whilst the room was OK it turned out to be a waste of time booking this hotel as I was kept awake all night by the noise from a function in the hotel. The room wasn't soundproofed and they were playing loud rock music and Han even louder DJ. Not recommended if you want a relaxing night.

This is my second stay at this hotel which in my opinion is in dia need of refurbishment in the rooms, it's old fashioned and tired looking, carpets dusty and slightly worn, curtains at the window are cheap and useless at blocking out the street light and the nets are old fashioned and a dirty looking. We were disappointed to...

I stayed here last Tuesday and it was the best stay in a hotel in ages. The receptionist Lisa ran the place and worked so hard behind the bar and giving us our breakfast the next morning. The hotel itself is really quirky. The breakfast is amazing and there is such a wide variety. Definately worth a visit.

I was in the Munster Arms in a group of 23 men for a function on Sunday 12/6. It was the perfect end to an enjoyable day. We had booked a private room for a one course meal & sing-song. The meal of Corned Beef and veg was excellent and there was plenty more veg for those who wanted it....

Old world hotel with history.If you want rows and rows of identical rooms on identical floors with a sanitised minimalist look, go elsewhere. If you want charm, character and homeliness, then the Munster Arms is for you. A great spot to base a tour of West Cork. Highly recommended.

Booked on booking.com on April 25 for a stay on May 21. Arrived at reception and no sign of our names on that night's list. Receptionist could see my booking on her computer but nobody had transferred it to the written diary. Simply told me there was nothing she could do as they were fully booked. Manager was "unavailable". When...

We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused upon your arrival at our hotel. Unfortunately, all of our rooms were fully booked on your date of arrival, with a double booking being no fault of your own. We accept responsibility for the mistake made on our side and appreciate that it should not have happened nor does it usually happen....
