Fota Island Hotel & Spa
Book restaurant before you go, as it was booked out for the Saturday night. Was very good & clean. Rooms were very clean but cold as you need you key to turn on heating. Bar staff could be a lot more friendly . Restaurant staff mixed up our meal three times so by the time it came we had eaten our dinner. Staff at reception were to come back to me on arrival but l had to go back to them on Saturday morning, Not good enough for a 5 Star Hotel. We loved the place but Staff have no organized especially in bar restaurant.

Very Good8.0
very comfortable hotel
The hotel is beautiful and I enjoyed the stay but unfortunately people in the nearby room started shouting in the early hours and slamming doors, the night porter tried to intervene, it was not the hotel's fault, the food is delicious and the room is so comfortable in would definitely stay again.
