Overlooking the Ilen River, the West Cork Hotel is located on the Wild Atlantic Way and in the heart of Skibbereen. We offer tranquil riverside accommodation along with the laid-back charm of one of West Cork’s most colourful market towns.
Through many generations of family ownership, The West Cork Hotel remains Skibbereen’s and indeed West Cork’s most iconic hotel. Deeply rooted in the community, it’s the warmth of The West Cork Hotel’s staff, relaxed charm and town centre location that reveal the true heart of this hotel.
Established in 1902, The West Cork Hotel was owned and operated by the Murphy family for 104 years. In 2006, it was acquired by Skibbereen residents Tim and Marian Looney who pledged to continue the hotel’s ethos of old fashioned hospitality and value.
Ideally located for visiting all of the tourist attractions West Cork has to offer. Baltimore & the Islands, Lough Hyne, Schull, Mizen Head, Glandore, Union Hall, Sheep’s Head and The Beara Peninsula are all within a short drive from the hotel.
