“Hotel just okay, restaurant....don't bother!”

Faithlegg Golf Club
Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

We've stayed here a few times and would describe the hotel as just okay, by international standards it would be three star. The room is of reasonable size, the double bed is two Singles zipped together. The ambiance is friendly and in fairness all of the staff are very friendly and helpful.
There is a bar, with live music some nights and the bar food is tasty and reasonable value.
The main restaurant is very disappointing. The menu is fairly uninspiring, the lights are on full blast so it's brighter than McDonalds and there's just zero atmosphere. We could find nothing to bother with on the starter menu. For mains we had lamb shank and steak. Both were completely unremarkable. For dessert I had chocolate mousse with Cointreau and my partner had the cheese plate. The chocolate mousse was bland, not especially flavoursome, the best part was the dot of Cointreau and sesame seed cream on the edge of the plate. The cheese plate was generous but the notion of less-is-more passed them by! Honestly, if you stay her....skip the restaurant it's really not worth the €49 per head - go to the bar to eat or go back in town!

Faithlegg is head and sholders above any golf course in the waterford area,the fairways were bone dry for this time of year we couldnt get over this "it was summer dry".The greens are in an excellant condition so a big congrats to the greenkeepers on this.The greens are so good that you just need to go and experience them,pin positions were really tough on the day but this added to the challange.the girls in the Pro shop were great to deal with and the same can be said for the staff in the resturant after the game.food is probably a little on the pricey side for what it is but that didnt take from a really enjoyable day out and we will be back to sample it again,so keep up the good work.

Second time back with our society this year and Ryan and the team had everything tip top again including the weather! Course was in great condition and the general opinion was that the greens are by far the best around. There are no easy putts in Faithlegg. We retired to the clubhouse post golf ,which has a great view of the 18th, and enjoyed a huge golfers grill. I couldn't actually finish mine. 28 satisfied golfers of all abilities. It will definitely be on our calendar next year.

We had a fun dinner in the bar after a long day on the road. Our room was large by European standards and our friends room was HUGE! The staff was helpful and pleasent.

My fiancé and I were just engaged when we checked into faithlegg. On arrival they gave us a bottle of proseco and handmade chocolates, which was lovely.
We had a lovely stay in one of the suites. The breakfast was also wonderful.
