Enjoyed our stay. Room a little small but comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay so much at the West Cork Hotel, we received such a warm welcome late Friday night and the room was lovely, looking over the river Ilen. The staff were so friendly and helpful at every turn and we really enjoyed the breakfast (loved the union hall smoked salmon). We can’t wait to come back, thanks for a lovely weekend.
Lovely hotel in a great location. Breakfast was good too . Enjoyed our stay
The west Cork is our favourite hotel very welcoming great staff.
Looking forward to our next stay with ye
Lovely stay. Excellent location. Helpful staff. Brilliant breakfast and beautiful breakfast room. Surpassed my expectations.
We have been coming to Skibbereen from the U.S. for my entire life. My father was born here and left when he was 21. Still, he and my mother wanted us to know our Irish cousins and grandparents so they made the commitment to bring us every other year. We always ate at the West Cork Hotel (and stayed with family or friends or rented a house) whenever we came to town. For the first time, my husband and I STAYED at the hotel and could not have been happier. We got a newly renovated room with a river view and it was great. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the bathroom was gorgeous, spacious and best of all…clean, clean clean! This should be a given in any hotel but it is not always so.
Employees at the hotel have always been very friendly and professional. We would be happy to return next time we are in the area.
We enjoyed our stay, the staff were very helpful and we will visit again.
thank you so much for a most enjoyable stay. Your hotel is full of charm and the breakfast was divine
what stood out to me was how nice and helpful the staff were, a real credit to the hotel
we will be back
My Partner and I did very much enjoy our stay in your hotel. We were visiting in the area and only arrived at 6pm approx asking for B and B. I was met by a very efficient and friendly receptionist who arranged the room for me. As we were only passing through and my Partner thought he would visit somebody from Skibbereen who had called to c his Mam in Lahinch about 12 years ago but for whom he didn’t have a phone number, so we asked the receptionist did she know the area or could she help us. She said that she wasn’t from that area herself but that she would got somebody who was, which she did. I was only literally in the room when the reception rang to say that there were two people in the restaurant who knew the area and actually knew the lady we were looking for and they would take us out to c her. They did this and we had a most enjoyable evening with her.
The room was perfect and we had a lovely breakfast the following morning. We had a most enjoyable stay and I certainly will be recommending (and already have recommended) your hotel to any of my friends who may be going in that direction.
I had a wonderful time during my recent stay. The recent renovation at the side of the hotel by the river brings out the real beauty and perfect view around the hotel. Thanks to the excellent chef, I had good break fast and lunch. The friendly staff from the reception, bar, restaurant and house keeping all lived to expectation. They really up their game this time and the receptionist accorded me easy means regarding transport to and from Baltimore when I visited FASTNET light house.
The three days spent was like home away from home. I will like to give the hotel a 5 STAR.
Spectacular stay. Beautiful, clean and comfortable room! Wonderful breakfast provided, and friendly helpful staff on hand to help with anything. Would recommend and stay here again.
I had a most enjoyable three night stay.
I stayed with you for a night in 2018, having spent three nights at Casey’s of Baltimore and a night on Cape Clear. On that occasion I was in Room 124, which was not a pleasant experience, due to the noise from the extraction fan outside the window!
On this trip I was allocated Room 220, which was satisfactory.
You have very nice staff with excellent ‘person to person’ skills.
I look forward to staying with you in the future, with perhaps a view over the River Ilen on my next visit?
Mr Michael T Long
We’ve just returned from a brilliant weeks stay at The west Cork Hotel. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble for the team that cared so well for both of us.
Our room was lovely, bright, well furnished, great walk in wet room. Spotlessly Clean. Everything and more than you would expect from a hotel. The hotel was furnished to a high standard. The food was excellent.
The West Cork Hotel Team were absolutely brilliant. Special thanks to Kate on reception and Sheila in the restaurant. Everyone was Extremely helpful and ‘smiley’. Great bar staff.
The owner Tim and his son made you feel completely comfortable and relaxed.
We would certainly recommend this hotel to our friends and family. We’re definitely making a return visit next year - can’t wait!
Highly recommend a visit from anyone who’s fortunate to find this ‘gem’.
Thanks so much from
Fantastic experience, quiet room, all the comforts you need, very kink employees. Recommend
Our stay was very good. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean..and. comfortable. The food and service was excellant. The hotel is centrally located and easily accessible to major highways.
Myself and my husband stayed with you Sunday 8th Sept last and really enjoyed our stay. Your hotel is very comfortable and all members of staff extremely friendly.
My daughter is now living in Skibbereen and we expect to be using your hotel lots of times in the future.
Four star rating
I love this hotel. The staff are so warm welcoming helpful and friendly
We had stayed before and some of them remembered us from 5 years ago !
The room was clean and spacious with a stylish en-suite.
I’m really hoping it won’t be long before we’re back again
My wife and I stayed in this hotel on the nights of the 4th and 5th September. It is a lovely hotel and the staff were extremely friendly and I must give a special mention to the guy on the check in desk who was exceptional. Our room was immaculate and we had a lovely view over the river which was really nice. Breakfast was lovely with a wonderful choice. This hotel is in a ideal location in West Cork and there are loads of places to visit nearby if you use it as your base. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.
We had a lovely visit to West Cork and stayed 1 night in the West Cork Hotel. What a lovely experience, we arrived early and were very fortunate to check in after a short wait. The room was a river view could not fault the room. we went for a drink in the bar, very nice we met the owner and he stopped for a chat which we observed was the norm. We had a very nice meal in the restaurant and found the service equally good also very personal each and every table visited more the once to check all was well. The menu was varied and the food very good it was reasonably priced. I would definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
We recently stayed at your hotel and will definitely be back for another visit.
From the moment we arrived we were made welcome and it was very impressive
to meet the owner while having a meal that evening and again at breakfast the following morning
The food was excellent and and it was lovely that our breakfast was served at the table.
Keep up the good work.
Denis & Liz cork
The friendliest & helpful staff that I have ever met. Absolutely superb.
We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception in your hotel, and not only ourselves but also all our guests remarked on the excellent and very friendly service we received from all of you, the manageress, all the various staff. Patricia, Ann Marie and Kathleen among those that organised us so efficiently and kindly. We cannot speak highly enough of both your very comfortable, cosy hotel and your excellent staff. We also enjoyed the night in one of your lovely bridal suites.
A very big thank you to all.
Agnes and Ian Morley-Goyvaerts
Nice decoration throughout with lovely rooms, lovely staff, good breakfast and great location. Very relaxing 3 night stay and would love to return one day.
The West Cork Hotel is the best hotel I stay in for customer service. Nothing is too much for the staff, and everyone goes around with a smile on their faces !
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the West Cork Hotel. All the staff are most pleasant and courteous. The room 118 was very spacious and spotless. The evening meals and breakfast was excellent on both days. We certainly would highly recommend the hotel to friends and family.
Thanks to all.
Was at the West Cork Hotel on Sat night , had a lovely night beautiful evening meal , and the rooms are beautiful , would highly recommended it . Staff so helpful and nice too. A big 6 STAR.
Great location, wonderful hotel and facilities, nothing a problem all staff very pleasant and accommodating especially the gentleman on reception. Breakfast selection was immense and tasty. Would stay again and recommend the hotel
We really enjoyed our stay in ur hotel service was excellent. Hotel was amazing couldn’t do enough for us . Cant wait to go back .
Excellent hotel. Central location with good car park and just around corner from the bus stop. Room, food and quality of care of the highest order. Very happy to return and use as a base to explore beautiful West Cork. 5 stars.
Our room was lovely and bright, and very peaceful. Staff in the dining room and bar were very professional and mannerly. Food was excellent, especially( the roast beef dinner) . We are looking forward to our next stay in the
Clean, comfortable, good beds and a great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Delighted to see John Murphy (former owner) at breakfast.
Great hotel in quaint town with nice rooms. The breakfast was top notch and the property has some nice scale to it. The food was good and the bathtub was a pleasant surprise to see. Highly recommended and you are maybe 300 feet from the cute high street in Skibereen. Beds were very comfortable too.
We had a beautiful stay in this hotel,room fabulous and comfortable,staff were very friendly ,breakfast spot on we certainly will be back four star
Loved my stay here
Great location great food great view
Room was so comfortable
Staff were nice too
An absolute gem of a place to stay. The room we stayed in was a superior room , it was well laid out plenty of space, bed very comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely walk in shower. The decor is very modern also. The staff are hard working and very friendly and helpful. An added bonus was the owner was also present in the hotel ,he had a shake hands for you when he first met you and would enquire in the evening or following day as to how you enjoyed your day. A lovely touch I thought. As for the food, it was A1. It was tasty,hot and a great selection of it. Food and drinks here are very reasonably priced I must say. All in all definitely well worth a visit and I will be back for sure.
Staff very helpful, room small for two people, but was ok for one night stay. Perfectly located in town and near to all amenities.
Couldnt fault it-food,service,everything
We had a family room. Very large king bed and two single beds very comfortable. Roomwas clean with a huge bathroom bright and clean, with strong shower. Hotel was perfect location for skibereen centre.
Had a wonderful 2 day stay in this hotel. Set in beautiful surroundings to start. Comfortable rooms food great very friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend and will definitely pay another visit
Very pleasant stay, albeit a short one. Grand room, very clean and spacious. Nice location beside the river. Food excellent, and staff friendly. Highly recommended for a ‘gateway’ to the delights of West Cork.
A wonderful stay at the West Cork Hotel, a home away from home. The staff were all lovely and so helpful. Food was fantastic, especially the breakfast. Will definitely be back.
We had a wedding to attend and had come from Australia. Unfortunately we couldn’t get a room for the Friday night (owing probably to the wedding guest staying there) I was a little concerned about getting dressed in time. The young man on the reception was brilliant. Told us he would find somewhere for us to get ready anyway if the room wasn’t ready then move our bags in for us. He was so helpful and obliging. Made our stay so relaxing. The room was ready so all was ok. He must have been dealing with lots of wedding guest with different request but nothing was any trouble for him. Beautiful room and very clean. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Skibbereen
Stayed here as part of a big, extended family in Skibbereen for a wedding.
Fantastic staff, so friendly and all so helpful. Lovely, bright & airy hotel. Thoroughly enjoyable & a great place to stay.
Nice location, lovely friendly staff, rooms a bit dated but very clean.
Bar food and breakfast was excellent. Would definitely return
From the moment I got there the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was really comfortable and had a great night sleep after a fantastic friends wedding.
10 out of 10,nice welcome,friendly staff.will return.
West Cork is a great part of Ireland and the West Cork Hotel is a great part of Sibbereen.Nice qualit bedrooms surprisingly better than I expected. Fab atmosphere in the breakfast room staff brilliant, breakfast of scrambled eggs and kippers to die for.Great music coming up from the ballroom, on the Sunday night ,Joe Dolan still going strong after all those years.Historic nostalgia is a very strong point ,all staff definetly working as a team which you can feel around the place.Just only one downside to all this goodness I had to leave the famous West Cork Hotel and face the world again.
We had a lovely stay at the West Cork Hotel. Our rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated. Looking forward to our return visit.
For the second year in a row I stayed at the West Cork. This year my son was with me and we had the opportunity of reconnecting with family in the area. By coincidence I was given the same room I had last year, (105) with a beautiful view of the River Ilen so it felt like coming home again. Our stay was fine and comfortable; we were given a fan when we needed one. The food was good and service amiable. I remembered Shelia from the restaurant and she remembered me; she is so sweet. The hotel has a wonderful ambiance which combines comfort with local community energy. We love the West Cork; it feels like home away from home. Thanks for everything. Mary Ellen McCarthy Morris
Really enjoyed our stay. Hotel is beautiful and the staff are fantastic.
We stayed for three nights and had two girls with us 4 and 2. We had such an amazing experience, the room was plenty big enough, the food was gorgeous and the staff were very pleasant and always willing to help.
The only thing I regret is our stay was too short. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent hotel….very friendly staff throughout…great location for exploring West Cork.Found the owners to be very welcoming and interested in how we were enjoying our stay…definitely 5 star service combined with very good food and hotel room.
Great time the staff was so nice and helpful thank you all
Very friendly staff & lovely location. Good food ! Thank you!
Our return visit to a great hotel.
Spacious bright clean bedroom.
Very friendly and efficient service.
A must stay , when in West Cork.
We stayed at the West cork hotel the night after our wedding. We also had our day 2 party there. The staff could not have been more helpful. Everyone was so so lovely. The rooms were beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Everyone was so relaxed and welcoming.
Have just returned from a wonderful stay in the West Cork Hotel. It must be one of the most friendly hotels in the country.
Every one of the staff and the owners could not have been more welcoming.The food is excellent. You certainly would not come away hungry from here. I would highly recommend a stay in this hotel if you are visiting West Cork.
Stay here every year. Great accommodations and very nice people.
This was the best hotel we stayed at in our two and half week trip around Ireland.
It is so refreshing to walk into a hotel and instantly feel welcome and see that everyone in the hotel obviously enjoys working there. Check in and checkout was easy. The reception staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
We arrived around 6.30pm and went downstairs for dinner. The bar staff were wonderful. Happy to have a quick chat while you ordered your dinner and always smiling. We were served by the very lovely Hannah, who made us feel very welcome and checked in a couple of times to make sure we were ok. The gentleman who was obviously in charge for the night walked around and greeted all the guests in the dining area, chatting briefly and making sure everything was ok. Fabulous touch and he was very genuine.
Our room was an excellent size and the beds are very comfortable.
The shower pressure was amazing. Could have stayed in there for hours.
Wifi was good. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the room.
Parking is free and there is plenty.
Breakfast next morning was exceptional and made to order. Again, staff in this area were fabulous and seemed happy to be there.
Someone in charge at this hotel has the magic formula for happy staff!
It makes all the difference when greeted with warmth and treated as someone special.
This is what hospitality is all about.
Highly recommend this hotel and would most definitely stay here again.
This was our fourth time staying in the last 2 years and once again we had a lovely stay. Only one night so wish it could have been longer. Lovely room, great breakfast (buffet items and menu) and staff are always very friendly and pleasant. Nothing is too much trouble. Hotel bar is nice - it was never overly busy or noisy when we were there which was great . Onsite parking. We also had a family lunch function and food very nice. We will definitely be back again.
We had a lovely stay in your lovely hotel..
We stayed in one of your superior rooms and we were delighted with the space, the cleanliness and the luxury provided…thank you.again and the young gentleman on the front desk was a joy to speak with!
I really was pleased with my stay at the West Cork Hotel. Rooms were lovely and hospitality with the staff amazing. Location is perfect and situated close to shops and river. What an enjoyable experience. Staff were wonderful. Food was good. Amenities excellent

We arrived on the 7th July for three nights, receptionist very helpful and pleasant and wrote directions for us to a local beach, Breakfast was plentiful and plenty of variety, our bedroom was comfortable, bar staff attentive and obliging.
Hotel is well situated for touring around from, the great weather was a big bonus, and we enjoyed our time with you before heading on to Kerry.

We had a very enjoyable stay. We have been there before and second time round was just as good as the first. Spotless, comfortable room,lovely ambience throughout. Food and service excellent and the staff are a credit to themselves and hotel owner. We will definitely be back. Sandra McGrath
Welcoming staff, very comfortable bed, well laid-out room and bathroom and quite good dining facilities although the night we dined the kitchen was having its ups and downs. All in all, an excellent place to say.
Excellent service, staff always helpful and friendly. Beds ok, eider downs too warm. Bar look could be freshened up. Breakfast was good. Parking good.
Have stayed here several times in recent years, in winter and summer and always appreciated the great location, very comfortable rooms, good bar and restaurant, but most importantly the warm welcome and extremely helpful staff. Many thanks. We will definitely be back. Steve & Julia Cole.
great staff and location. I recommend the Suite upgrade…its worth it
Stayed in this fab hotel for 3 days last week.Loved every second of it the staff the food,the location.The owner Tim is also very nice had a few chats with him Andover old charm as you can see from the decor.We have just 1 tiny negative and that is the night porter,he had to let us in one night and we have never come across anyone as rude.When you are letting guests in the least you would expect is a welcome and a hello!!! Other than that we look forward to returning to the West Cork in the near future.I am giving it 5* as it would be unfair to take anything away from the hotel over 1 rude person in all of our stay.
Three nights in Room 200 in June and we had a great time! The hotel is spotless, the food superb, and the staff faultless. Nollaig at the desk is so welcoming, and Belinda in the restaurant is very impressive - combining good humour, efficiency and high energy. Amazing stuff!
Well done, everyone, we’ll be back!
Tommy & Ann
We stayed at the West Cork hotel this July for a cousins wedding everything was first class staff are extremely friendly the food also first class I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Skibbereen
Excellent Hotel, fabulous staff.Will definitely return
We stayed at your hotel from Friday 28th June to Mon 1st July 2019 and we couldn’t fault the hotel, staff, service, room, food and location in any way shape or form. The attention to detail given to each guest both in the restaurant and bar was second to none. The deal we got “Young at Heart” was excellent value for money, and we most certainly would stay with you again. We did leave the ratings card at reception on checking out. Catherine and Fergus Langford
Sehr schönes Hotel, guter Service, Reichhaltiges Morgenbuffet. Zimmer sauber, ruhige Lage. Essen im Restaurant war sehr gut!
This is a lovely hotel with a very helpful staff. Our room was large with a nice bathroom. Our room happened to be too warm but the staff was able to
find a fan for us. We did not have a view of the river but we did have a very good meal in the restaurant.
Enjoyed my stay, ever.
Warm welcome at reception and friendly staff throughout the Hotel . Lovely comfortable room overlooking the river.
Breakfast was great and served until 11 am ! Which was great .
We will be back.
We Enjoyed Our Stay Very Much The Staff From The Front Desk To The Bar And Resturante Could’nt Be Nicer The Dinner Was Out Of This World The Room Was Very Clean And Comfortable We were Sorry We Did’nt Stay Longer
Regards Pat O’Sullivan

Good accommodation, great food and lovely staff.
A very homely hotel, staff very friendly and helpful
Comfortable room, cheery staff and great value. Loved our short stay at the West Cork Hotel.
Both my wife and I had a very pleasant experience when we stayed with you recently , your main strength is the friendliness and efficiency of your wonderful staff. The room was very clean and comfortable . The selection and service in the Bar was excellent , sometimes it can be difficult to get a good pint in an Hotel but yours was top class.
The full Irish breakfast was superb as was the dining room staff . I have since recommended your establishment to numerous friends and indeed we are looking forward to a return visit .
We stayed for three nights on our first trip to Ireland. Our room was very comfortable, the staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food was excellent. We attended a wedding reception in the hotel and were very impressed with the level of service from all staff. We love the West Cork Hotel!
Lovely hotel in a lovely small town.
Staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble! Would recommend to anyone.
Had a lovely two night stay, our second time to stay here. Our room was very stylish and comfortable. Location is great as it is literally only a few steps to the town centre. The food was gorgeous and staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be a place that we will return to again in the future!
I had an excellent stay as always. Will be back soon.
