The West Cork Hotel, Skibbereen offers the discerning visitor the best of both worlds:
- The tranquility of rural, riverside accommodation;
- And the laid-back charm of one of the region’s most colorful market-towns.
The Hotel offers 34 en-suite rooms which can satisfy a diverse range of accommodation and budgetary requirements. All rooms are luxuriously appointed; the majority take full advantage of views over the beautiful River Ilen. All are equipped with tea- and coffee- making facilities as well as cable tv and direct dial telephone. All are spacious, peaceful, and calming. And yet, because of its central location, The West Cork Hotel is ideally placed to exploit all that beautiful Skibbereen (Sciobairin; ‘little boat harbour’) offers: award-winning seafood restaurants, lively traditional music pubs, a French chocolatier, bustling farmers' markets.
An ideal base for those wishing to explore what is, arguably, Ireland’s most scenic and unspoilt coastline, The West Cork Hotel has established a reputation for excellence with, among others, couples on romantic getaways, families who want to have fun, wedding planners, conference organizers….In short, anyone wanting a comfortable, friendly, affordable destination which successfully mixes the best of old and new.
Established in 1902, the Hotel was owned and operated by the Murphy family for 104 years. In 2006, it was acquired by Skibbereen residents Tim and Marion Looney who have pledged to continue the Hotel’s ethos of old fashioned hospitality, and value.
