Glengarriff Park Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Glengarriff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2012

In a lovely spot, good for walkers, the Hotel owns a sweater shop on one side, a modern bar/restaurant on the other and an older style Irish pub at the end. The same lady who works in the shop, serves in the restaurant and brought our breakfast in the morning. The guy behind the bar also served our evening meal. Don't opt for the Chicken Caesar Salad. A large bed of lettuce, some of which was turning brown, with over-cooked slices of chicken. No anchovies, no parmesan. And the salad dressing had no taste. They need a decent chef here. Staff were pleasant, especially Leo on reception, room was lovely, large airy clean and with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was OK, no Wow – no fresh fruit, all out of cans, cooked breakfast was fine. But eat elsewhere in the evening.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front on the first floor which was perfect.

Myself and a friend stayed at this lovely hotel at the weekend. Its is in the centre of Glengarriff and close to all that the village has to offer in terms of pubs and restaurants. Everything is in walking distance.
When we arrived, we were told that they had no record of our booking. (We had booked through Booking.com.) However, they were able to accomodate us. When we booked, I selected the less expensive room, as it promised a sea view. But the lad on reception said that none of the rooms afforded a sea view. I cannot blame the hotel for this, as it was on the Booking.com website. To make up for my dissapointment, he upgraded our room, at no extra cost and we eventually had a lovely room with a view of the carpark and a hill...
We ate in The Park Bistro, which is the hotels restaurant. the food and service was out standing. Lovely staff. If I had one criticism, it would be that last orders for food, was rather early at 8.45.
The bar was great and had a nice vibe to it. There was live music, which was great.
The rooms were nice and big, as was the bathroom. Plenty of hot water and towels. The pillows were very hard though.
All in all, a great experience.
Glengarriff is a small village in a lovely part of west Cork. There are plenty of lovely walks to go on and there is a ferry service that takes you out to one of the Islands nearby.

Room Tip: The room we had at the back was very quite.

Glengarriff Park Hotel was everything we hoped for - big comfy beds, nice room, yummy food and extremely helpful staff, especially Leo the young hotel manager. Glengarrff is an ideal base for anyone wanting to walk parts of the Beara Way, appreciate the views and nature or just enjoy a few creamy pints in the local pubs!

We stayed here for one night in February. It was a really nice little hotel, very clean, comfortable beds, large television with all the Irish channels along with a few overseas channels, all the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. What more could anyone want? We would definately recommend staying here.

Arriving at this hotel on spec we were greeted by a friendly South African lady on reception. We were shown to our room which turned out to be a suite (room 212) which was immaculate. Super clean bathroom, crisp clean bed linen and really quiet (we went in off season).

Breakfast was tasty and prompt. We thought that the hotel was brand new given how clean it was but apparently it is 5 years old and really well maintained. Can't recommend it highly enough given the excellent tariff.

Breakfast waitress could be a little more bouncy ( a little dour but friendly enough when you chatted to her) but that would be an unfair comment to reduce the overall rating. A simple smile and a jaunty step would make it Excellent!

I loved my stay here, very comfortable room, lovely bathroom, great breakfast (served by a woman who was like Mrs Doyle from Father Ted, I kept expecting her to say...Go On, Go On..). I would definately stay here again. Go to Caseys on Friday eveing to see Maureen O Hara who lives nearby !!
