We had a great few days there, the facilities were excellent, we could not fault the food. Best of all were the staff, polite, happy and always ready to help and advise. Yes we would defiantly go there again.

Staff were fantastic. Excellent leisure facilities & breakfast. Will definitely be back.

The setting for the hotel is lovely and the view is beautiful, staff are very pleasant, but our room smelled of smoke even though we had the window open but it is hard for a hotel to monitor this and it could do with updating. We had a bite to eat in the bar that night they were extremely busy the food was good but the service was only okay I worked in the hospitality for years and would expect a little bit more, burgers are a bit pricey for what you are getting even though they did taste nice. We had breakfast the next morning which was a buffet, staff were very nice, food was okay but they have changed their products over the last number of years as breakfast there used to outstanding. Didn't use the pool so can't comment on this. I would stay there again as I really like the area and it is good value for money

Fantastic hotel very well located ideal for quiet holiday. Food and leisure facilities fantastic and staff very customer orientated. Liam & Alice

by Rob on Oct 2 2017 15:07

Hotel was in a great location. rooms were a little dated but the service was good. excellent WiFi service in the rooms. breakfast however left it down as it was a bit haphazard and the food was left too long under the lights and was pretty dried up. we were at breakfast by 9am so it should have been fresher by then.

by Martina McCarthy on Sep 14 2017 11:58

lovely hotel, great staff, house wine a bit pricey, food great

by Jim Keane on Jun 28 2017 16:28

excellent breakfast and dinner and service all round

by Steve on May 12 2017 10:53

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at the Celtic Ross Hotel. The staff were great, most helpful and everything done with a smile! Food was good, and the room was well looked after by the domestic staff for us which was nice. Beautiful area to stay in, would recommend it to anyone.

by Happy Guest! on Mar 20 2017 12:04

We loved the friendly atmosphere in this hotel, everything was geared towards the guest's comfort. Food & service was faultless despite a very busy St. Patricks Day. John at bar most helpful. Room 110 spacious & had beautiful furniture & lovely view. If I had any small quibble it was that reading lamp on one locker only & plug wouldn't fit on other side so I read with my phone torch! Otherwise a blissful stay. Many thanks.

by Bet lyons on Mar 14 2017 23:52

We had a great weekend staff were very friendly hotel had been updated since we were last there's. Food great but bufay breakfast could be hotter Dinner was beautiful but helpines were small

by Anne Walsh on Feb 3 2017 15:44

Just returned from three day break in the Celtic Ross Hotel and have to say it was a very enjoyable stay we have been there before and it is always very pleasant from the time that you arrive until you leave all the staff are so friendly and hope to return again

by Scottie on Feb 2 2017 22:20

I recently stayed in the Celtic Ross Hotel. From checking in until the time we left we found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. The meal was excellent. A nice added bonus was a pre dinner dring provided by the Hotel. We walked to Rosscarberry as it is only a few minutes walk up the hill. There are a few nice pubs there. There was an adjoining door in the room and we could hear some noise coming from the room- that was the only drawback with our stay. John & Sandra

by John McGuire on Jan 30 2017 11:01

Hi, We recently stayed at Celtic Ross and found it very pleasant. The food was good in the restaurant and the staff were excellent. The village is walking distance and a good choice of bars to pass the night away. If the weather is with You there is a lot of nice walks to be had too. I do however mention that room 212 has adjoining room door to 214 and if the people are yapping until 3am ( as they did ) the paper thin door is of no help to the noise and privacy level. I hope management will sort this as it was the only negative point I can mention about our stay at The Celtic Ross. Thank You...John and Debbie.

Great night stay, food lovely, bar nice and relaxing, only down side went with my girlfriend had plan to use spa facilities, we where informed 2 days in advance only 1 therapist on duty, still went had a great time, would highly recommend.

by Mal on Dec 12 2016 13:12

Overall very happy with our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent. If there is any criticism it would be the lack of soundproofing of the bedrooms doors. Many thanks.

by mary rowan on Nov 7 2016 14:31

Loved the hotel. Had a great time. The staff are lovely. The food in the restaurant is lovely. Family rooms are a generous size. The leisure centre has everything you need. Perfectly located to visit Clonakilty, Baltimore, Glandore, Union Hall etc. Will be returning!

by MS on Nov 7 2016 12:05

Lovely stay , 2 adults 2 kids . Room had double bed , single bed and camp bed which was fine . The room was a good size for a family. Food was excellent and service couldn't be faulted . Found all the staff including the leisure center staff to be very helpful. The lounge and library areas were great for a relaxing drink after dinner . The kids enjoyed the kids club and had plenty to do . Rosscarbery is a quiet town , but a great base for exploring the Southern part of west cork . Only thing that let it down was the charge for breakfast for the kids . We were aware that there may be a charge for kids for breakfast which is fine , but it was €5 per child per breakfast , but as our kids are young , they only had cereal and juice and this charge wasnt advised to us in advance. We stayed in 2 other hotels as part of this trip with same terms and conditions and the other 2 hotels had no charge for kids for breakfast.

We recently stayed at The Celtic Ross Hotel and had a brilliant stay. The staff really make this hotel and we met lovely people at the Leisure Centre who gave us loads of sightseeing tips. Rosscarbery is a small town up the hill from the hotel which has a few pubs, restaurants, small supermarket and chemist. Across the road from the hotel is a water activities centre in the lagoon which was very busy. Just down the road is an outdoors Fish & Chip restaurant. Nearby are some beaches and Clonakilty is only 10 mins drive away. There you can see the model railway village & road train (well worth a trip), 2 Museums (Michael Collins and the West Cork museum). This is a lovely town for shopping and food and there is a playground on the road back to the hotel. Skibbereen is a 20 min drive west of the hotel. Again a lovely town which has a great playground. Don't forget to visit Lough Hyne (a salt water lake on the Baltimore road) for some swimming. There is a forest just across the road which is worth a trip while you are there.

Love it here, food great, staff all wonderful and great with the kids

by Catherine Brennan on Jun 19 2016 16:38

Lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful especially Melanie (waitress) who looked after us so well. Room very comfortable, but I would advise anyone staying there, to avail of the offer of 20 euros extra for a room overlooking the lake. At the back of the hotel, your view is of a cemetery! Quiet neighbors but a bit depressing! Apart from that, a lovely experience overall.

Excellent hotel and staff. We will definitely be returning again.

by N Leahy on Feb 23 2016 21:02

Had a lovely stay at the weekend at the Celtic Ross with family, reception staff were warm and friendly, dinner was outstanding on the Saturday night, we have stayed at this hotel at mid term with the kids for the last five years and this year was by far the best, the one fault we did find was we had booked a family room and when we arrived were given a room with a double and single, housekeeping did provide a camp bed for one of the kids but the room was very cramped compared to previous years. But we will return again next year!

by Aisling on Feb 23 2016 09:16

I've stayed here a number of times. Make sure you ask for a room with a view though. The room we got was looking out onto a graveyard! Dinner was beautiful, breakfast was massive and a little overdone but still nice. The staff are lovely too. Rosscarbery is a beautiful place and there's some great walks around too.

by Jtk on Feb 22 2016 17:31

Lovely hotel,beautiful scenery and loads to do,walks on the beach,pitch and putt,crazy golf etc food was lovely in hotel,nice leisure centre very child friendly

by Niamh Daly on Sep 6 2015 15:29

Really enjoyed our midweek break here. Evening food in the bar was fab. The girl, Deirdre, who served us was fantastic and an asset to the hotel. She chatted and Interacted with all guests in a very friendly and genuine manner. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious. This hotel is worthy of 4 stars. Lovely seating area outside looking out towards water. The reception and lobby area had plenty of seating also. My only slight criticism would be the breakfast. There was not a huge selection available when we were there as food and plates/bowls etc had not been replenished. Overall a fantastic stay in a beautiful hotel with great service and friendly staff. We will be back

Great value, very comfortable hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Will be back!!

by Pat on Feb 22 2015 10:54

Excellent hotel.Very friendly Irish staff.Food was top notch,locally sourced.There were no cheap substitutes here,breakfast was very good,wide range of cereals,breads,juices and the full Irish was very tasty.Both evening meals were of a very high standard too with a good choice of menu. Our weather was not the greatest during our stay,but thankfully we had the pool/leisure centre,which passed away a few hours. The room was spacious enough for the four of us,the only thing we found missing was the UTV Ireland channel on the tv,but apart from that,we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend this hotel.We will be back.

by Deirdre McCarthy on Jan 14 2015 12:17

Very happy with the hotel. The room was spacious and had a view of the sea. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Food was good. Entertainment in the bar on two of the nights we were there. Didn't see the leisure as it was unfortunately closed for renovations. The hotel stay was a pleasurable experience.

by marie marie on Jun 24 2014 20:35

I I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are v. friendly. The bedroom and ensuite were spotlessly clean. The hotel is quiet at night. The food both dinner and breakfast is first class. Superb value at 90 euro for two people bnb and dinner. The area is lovely and Rosscarbery village nearby .

by italy 087 on Jan 29 2014 12:45

lovely hotel and beautiful scenary and setting.nice receptionist on arrival - could have been a little more friendly. the meal was fab and the dining room staff were very friendly and helpful. the room was nice - clean and very warm. great to have kettle. the breakfast was a bit disappointing. although breakfast is served until half ten and we arrived about 10.15, the brown bread basket was empty, no white pudding and the quality of the sausage was NOT GOOD. the receptionist on duty when we were checking out was so friendly and helpful. would definately stay again and really great value for money, and we enjoyed west cork - it never fails us.

by mariep on Jan 5 2014 12:41

Had a lovely stay, breakfast was lovely, plenty of everything and homemade scones and brown bread for breakfast, dinner was delicious as well, as a regular visitor to rosscarberry, the scenery and walks are beautiful.

by Denise on Dec 10 2013 16:14

The Celtic Ross was excellent! The meal was the nicest we have had for a long time, rooms were spacious and comfortable, staff were all very friendly and efficient. It was a short walk to a local pub which had a great atmosphere and the following day the scenery was lovely as it was such a nice morning. So 10 out of 10!

by bill on Oct 8 2013 15:24
