Fota Island Hotel & Spa
Always good
We were upgraded to a suite which was really spacious and lovely and was a welcome surprise. Have stayed here several times. Peace and quiet, nice food and lots of walkways. Very close to wildlife park and arboretum and an easy drive into Cork City.

Friendly Staff, lovely atmosphere
We loved our stay at Fota Island lodges. After a few minor glitches before arrival we were slightly worried that it wouldn't live up to expectations but we had no need to worry, it was great and we had a really lovely time. The lodges are very well equipped and comfortable, the spa and pool are fab and the hotel grounds are great. The location is ideal for exploring what Cork has to offer and we will definitely be back.

Amazing Hotel!
This hotel certainly deserves its great reputation. After a not-great experience at another hotel-spa-golf resort in Cork, we were hesitant about what it would be like. But Fota was pure luxury for a reasonable price (and during the summer, which could have been a peak price). The room was incredibly clean, had all the towels and extras we could need. The view from our room was of the rolling countryside. The bed was comfy, the bathroom included a tub and shower. We visited the spa and even though hadn't thought to book ahead they were able to get us in for a massage the next day. There was a regular heated pool as well as a children-free zone with hydrotherapy pools. The patio area off the pool was quiet and peaceful. They offered free robes, towels, slippers, and lockers. They had a dry and wet sauna as well as a room with hotbed chairs that allowed one to relax and get all the tension out. The massage we had was excellent. A mixture of Swedish and hot stones. We dined in the restaurant. It was fine dining and there was a two or three-course option. We had Duck and Lamb and it was delicious. We were completely impressed. They also have another restaurant for more conservative dining (great if you have kids). The hotel offers a free full and continental breakfast, free parking, and free wifi. We are traveling back to Ireland in the fall and I literally can't wait to stay at this place again! 10/10
