Reviewed 17 August 2013

I booked this as one night room only stay and found it to be a very comfortable although a tad dated.
Staff were very welcoming and we were allowed to check into to our room c two pm after a long drive.
Our room was at the back of the hotel and we were were woken by delivery vans /staff cars arriving .. But hey ...early breakfast buffet was plentiful.
Excellent wifi coverage in all areas of the hotel.
My only complaint would be about the sharp steep turn in from the very busy road up a potholed and speed ramped entrance ... But once at the top ... Everything was there.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed in one of the beautiful holiday villas in July (2 adults & 2 children). The villas are very well decorated and have everything you could need for a relaxing stay, however, if you are staying with young toddlers (which we were) be aware that there is no safety gate on the stairs which was a bit stressful for us! Also the bedroom doors don't stay open unless you prop something up against them which isn't ideal if young children are sleeping in a room by themselves. Staff in hotel were very friendly and helpful. Food in hotel was really good also. Lovely location and within easy reach of Trabolgan & Fota Wildlife Park. Overall a lovely place for a family break.

Just back from a family break in the vienna woods, really enjoyed our stay here the staff were really helpful and breakfast was lovely a special mention to Mabel crawfords restaurant where the food was fantastic on both nights we ate there. The hotel is situated just a few minutes drive from cork and in lovely surroundings so made our stay very peaceful, rooms were very clean and the family room was nice and spacious too kids were treated to complimentary milk and cookies too which is a nice gesture, we really enjoyed our extras that came with the family package passes to a leisure centre and a day pass to trabolgan we also had a day pass to fota but couldn't go because of the rain. All in all a fabulous few days and would definitely stay here again if visiting cork in the future

After 4 weeks staying in one of the Vilas I got to know lots of the staff. I just want to say a special thank you to the front desk group: Moira, Susan, Daren and Mark. They are a great group of real professionals. Greeted all customers with respect and were always helpful. The housekeeping staff did a fantastic job too. Can't remember all their names except Eric but thanks to them too.
The hotel is in a convenient location and there is a bus within walking distance.

Accompanied by my wife we stayed overnight at the Vienna Woods, Glanmire. We found the accommodation generally good.The main drawback was that there was no air-conditioning in our room. We found the room was clean and tidy but was very clammy due to the very hot heatwave which the whole country was experiencing. If even a fan had been provided in the room it wood have made the stay more enjoyable.We called there to see the performance of an old friend, Country Singer, Robert Mizzell, and his band The Country Kings, and this fine country singer did not disappoint.This fine country singer gave a high class performance.The staff at this place were excellent all round. We had the evening meal prior to the dance and we both had lamb for the main course and it was of the highest standard. The soup and dessert was also excellent..

The staff are very good here, could not be more helpful, but the rooms and common areas are starting to look their age. We were attending a wedding in the hotel itself, and it was great to be able to just go upstairs afterwards!
The food is especially good. The bar prices are very expensive though. I know it is common practice and it is how hotels really cash in on weddings, and it would be unfair to single out this hotel in this context, but we ended up going to the nearby shop and getting a bottle of whiskey to share. Not very classy perhaps, but our small protest at the bar prices.
I would recommend a stay here as it is clean and comfy with friendly staff and good food, but it is not at all special or luxurious, which the website did rather hint at.

Room Tip: Sorry to be negative, but if your room is at the back you may experience quite a lot of noise when s...

Dear 2happycampers2,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your time spent with us.

The décor of our 18th century house hotel is in keeping with Irish Country Hotels, our affiliated Hotel Partner Group, which aims to achieve high quality, traditionally Irish, surrounds.
We are continuously investing in the hotel to ensure that our offering maintains highest standards for our guests, however if you have specific feedback you would like to elaborate on please contact me directly at tcronin@viennawoodshotel.com, I would appreciate your thoughts and we take all customer feedback very seriously.

In relation to the price of drinks, our prices are aligned with the prices of all Cork hotels. What distorts these prices are the low prices offered by off licences whose low over heads allow them to sell at a cheaper rate than hotels nationwide.

Had the bottle of whiskey you purchased and consumed on our premises, been consumed in the privacy of your bedroom, we are saddend by this and would hope that it would not encourage other guests to do so and damage the industry. However if it was consumed within our lounge or function room it was strictly against our hotel policy, as drink is for sale in these areas.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel.

Kind Regards,
Tara

I was recently one of the wedding party at a family wedding held in the Vienna Woods, Glanmire. On the day I was so impressed with the service, attention to detail and efficiency of the entire team. They were so friendly and helpful and clearly being lead by a fantastic manager. Michael Magner was completely hands-on on the day and so attentive to the bridal party. The food was excellent and plentiful! Well done to all the team on delivering a super service. Even if you're not looking for somewhere to hold an event and just want somewhere different to eat out - try Mable Crawfords in Vienna Woods ... same great service and great food!
