The Garryvoe Hotel Cork is situated directly overlooking the spectacular Ballycotton Bay and 5 miles of one of the finest beaches in Ireland. Driving time of only 40 minutes east from Cork City and Airport the hotels location is unrivalled in County Cork.
The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. That includes the girls in reception and the guys in the pool. I asked about check-out time and was told it's usually 11am but midday would be fine. Our room was massive and very plush and modern. I couldn't fault it. A lovely hotel. There's also a handy little shop across the road so you can buy sweets, sandwiches, toys, wine, bucket & spade for the beach etc.

Excellent Hotel and amazing location. Would recommend this hotel to ...
On arrival welcomed by a lovely member of staff but took her some time to locate booking even though I kept drawing her attention to our pre paid roomex coupon which had a booking ref number. Bathroom in hotel room was in need of a redocration, old & dated & wasnt in keeping with modern bedroom.Top of the bed headboard was covered in dust along with both lamp shades next to the bed. They obviously hadn't been cleaned in some time. Was kept awake most of the night by a noisy radiator & said it to reception staff next morning where I was told maintenance will be I informed & wasn't even given an apology. Breakfast for a four star hotel was disappointing. 1 brown loaf, a few crossiants, no fresh fruit , yoghurt , cheese or meats. Cooked breakfast available but wasn't great.

This hotel is definitely worth the drive, I requested a room away from the function room from the girl on reception and it was no trouble getting it.
The view from our 4th floor room was spectacular. Breakfast was great, all tastes catered for.
