West Cork Hotel

This welcoming hotel enjoys a pleasant riverside site beside the bridge, on the western side of Skibbereen town.

The main entrance is on the more accessible river side of the hotel, on the way in to the rear carpark, and the spacious foyer has a pleasant seating area which, together with a bright and airy bar, runs along the river side of the hotel. 

Bedrooms are not especially large, but they are comfortably furnished in a neutral modern style and have all the necessary amenities (phone, tea/coffee tray, TV) and neat, well-designed en-suite bathrooms; staff are friendly and helpful, giving the hotel a homely feeling, so this would make a good base from which to explore this beautiful area. Unless there is further redevelopment along the river, rooms at the back should be quieter and have a pleasant outlook over trees and river.

The hotel is a popular venue for local events and the function room is also a very pleasant room with river views.

Meals, including breakfast, are served in the modern Kennedy Restaurant; a popular speciality is the all morning breakfast, which is generously available until noon.

Conferences/Banqueting (400/300); secretarial services; free broadband wi/fi. Rooms 34 (2 family, 2 single, 10 shower only); B&B €75, SS €17. Lift. Garden. Private parking. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
