It was our first time at the hotel and its quite large and has lovely gardens, surroundings, view etc. We checked into the O'Mahony suite on the second floor and immediately noticed the... More

I had been so looking forward to staying in this hotel especially after hearing so many things about it. Traveled down on a Sunday evening by Train as I like train journeys and it is a relaxing way to get to Fota Island. The Hotel website advises - "If you are arriving by train, look for Kent Station in Cork... More

We spent two nights in the resort and really enjoyed it. The resort ticket all our boxes. the swimming pool was one of the highlights of the weekend, specially for the children. There is a small playroom by the reception, which my children enjoyed for few moments. The toys are a bit tired but did the trick for them! Breakfast... More

But as we had reserved our table we were immediately seated. Despite this our order of afternoon tea took over 30 minster to arrive and then was... More

Visited Santa here with our 15 month old and we were very impressed with it. The staff were exceptional from the very moment we arrived. They were full of joy and got everyone in the Christmas spirit. Santa himself was excellent and let our little lady adjust to seeing him in real life, in her own time. A lot of... More

Beautiful hotel. Staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Our bedroom had a lovely view of the front of the hotel grounds and our bathroom was amazing. It had a waterfall bath and the separate shower all in a wet room. Our breakfast and dinner was delicious. There was great selection on both menus. I've had friends with... More

Absolutely stunning. My favourite hotel. Stunning location. Staff were lovely. Pool is perfect. I can't fault my stay here. Beds were lovely and the place was so clean. Girls on reception at check in were so helpful. I can't wait to come back with my partner for a night or 2. Highly recommended.

I recently spent a weekend at Fota Island Resort for a family celebration (my father's 70th birthday). The rest of the family were staying in houses on the grounds of the hotel and as there wasn't enough room for everyone, myself and my partner had to stay in the hotel (lucky us!!). We had a really great experience. The staff... More
