Ilen Street, West Cork Hotel is on your right, car park entrance is on right just after hotel.
An ideal base for those wishing to explore what is, arguably, Ireland's most scenic and unspoilt coastline.
Fantastic laid back atmosphere. Staff couldn't have been nicer and the food was superb. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Great location.
A really friendly & relaxing hotel. Food is always wonderful. Looking forward to returning in the future.
Very disappointing indeed. We actually refused the room we were allocated as, in our view, it was a single room. The room was so small that we could not pass each other walking normally round the double bed. There was only one chair between the two of us, the wardrobe was so small and in such a tight space that a door could not be fitted, sliding or otherwise. The bathroom had no toilet roll holder just the holes in the wall where one should be and a pile of toilet rolls on top of the cistern. One of the lamps did not work and we had a splendid view of a rusting box-girder bridge from the window. When I complained we were offered other rooms to look at, we declined because we could not understand why we were allocated this poor room in the first place if other accommodation was available in accordance with, what we would understand to be modern rather than out-dated hotel practice. In our view the environs of the hotel were grim and the interior dingy. Looking at the web-site of this hotel our expectations were rather dashed. The only good outcome was that they had the grace not to charge us. We managed to acquire alternative accommodation at the Celtic Ross Hotel up the road, that hotel had the same star rating but in our view there was a world of difference. We had a previous deal from you that was superb value with great accommodation and this bad experience will not put us off booking another with Lidl Breaks, However we will never go back to the West Cork Hotel or recommend it to anyone.
perfectly pitched customer service, very friendly without being fake or put-on. A rare commodity these days. Would definitely stay again. Food was exceptionally good. all in all, a great place to stay, And a perfect spot from which to explore west Cork

I am writing this review of The West Cork Hotel to highlight my experience. I recently travelled to the hotel with my own with a baby. After booking from Lidl breaks I contacted the hotel in advance to request a suitable room (even though we had an â€˜offerâ€™) the hotel obliged and provided us with a wheelchair friendly family room. It was fantastic not having to manage steps/opening/closing doors etc. The hotel staff are amazingly helpful, courteous and friendly. They could not have possibly been more obliging â€“our every need was catered for. Food in The West Cork Hotel is simply fantastic. Breakfast is served. The hotel celebrates local produce. I have no hesitation in recommending The West Cork Hotel- our stay there was too short!! Thanks to everybody that assisted us it was greatly appreciated.
Lovely stay - nice clean room, beautiful setting, very friendly and helpful staff, and wonderful restaurant. Reasonably priced too - definitely recommend!
Had an absolutely incredible stay here over a wet, rainy weekend. Can honestly say that the staff are some of the friendliest I've experienced and my girlfriend remarked that at times it almost felt like you were in someones home they were so warm and helpful. The food was delicious, with the freshly cooked breakfasts and a huge range of lovely breads and extras served until 12 a real highlight. We left this hotel sure that we'd one day come back and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Good value doesn't go nearly far enough to describe it.
Room a tad small, but the hotel is beautiful, very centrally located and the food is top notch. Staff are also very helpful...highly recommend.

Stayed at the West Cork Hotel in June. Had a great time there. The hotel is in the town and has a good parking area. The food was out of this world and the bar had good music the night I was there. Staff were very friendly. Skibb itself is near some great places such as Baltimore just a 10 mile drive away.
A charming friendly hotel. Our room had a River view.The beds were really comfortable, and the staff took the "extra " effort which made us feel so welcome [freshly baked gluten free bread for me, and advice on texting for my companion! ] The meals were excellent, and Skibbereen sparkled in the sunshine. Fantastic value, and a welcome break. Thank you
We had a fantastic stay in The West Cork Hotel. I stayed with my three sisters. The rooms were superbe and well sized. The staff could not have been nicer. The food was beautiful and there was a good variety each night. The food was also well priced. I would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel to anyone. I was very happy with the price, it was excellent value for money and will be deffenatly using Lidl Breaks again.
