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... More

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.

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.

If you need to overnight in Bandon you will find a clean bed and a good shower here. However it is very ordinary and basic. The bar has no good whisky which... More
