Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting
I stayed at this hotel for one night - and two days of conference - in April. Having read some of the previous reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. But my experience of the hotel was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were big enough, clean, with ensuite and, if anything, the hotel was too warm at times! The grounds are beautiful and kept in pristine condition. But the top marks must go to the food! Every meal was delicious - fresh fish perfectly cooked, colourful vegetables, sinful desserts..! Breakfast was buffet style with a choice of cold or cooked. I opted for the cheeses, croissants, yogurts and wonderful jams (the latter sensibly presented in large dishes from which one could fill small pots - environmentally friendly). There are self-catering units in the grounds, which would be heaven for golfers, and for families. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Beautiful hotel, didn't want to leave!
The hotel was beautiful! The food was delicious! The room we had was very nice and clean. We only stayed one night, wished would could have stayed more.
Dear Trip Advisior,
I have thought about emailing before, i would have sooner if i had seen the nasty emails with Regards to Faithlegg House.
It is truely a Fantastic Estate, in the middle of the Country, it has everything you would want to have on a relaxing retreat, this is my third time visiting.
We went mid week and it was so peaceful you could actually hear yourself think!
The Staff were professional and really friendly and they seemed to be happy to be there.
The food is Fantastic, the Chef has a great name and i can see why.
Overall, i would recommend anyone to try it out.
Ok, but no means a 4 star hotel
Stay for a two night break at the end of December 2005. Staff not very friendly, hotel cold throughout. Rad in room was hot but rooms still seemed to be very cold. Members of my party tried to book a Spa treatment but they where booked out ?. Food and drink over priced. Had to ask 4 times for tea and Coffee at breakfast time and this was at a buffet breakfast. Hate to think how long we would have waited if they had to serve breakfast as well ? I am sure some people have good experiences but ours was not.
Could be alot better
Went to this hotel for a relaxing break, is out on its own and it quiet, but as other reviews have said, bedrooms are very small, could hear people next door and wasnt the cleanest. Restaurant food was very nice though. Breakfast is buffet, which we were also never told about when we were seated, and also had to call a waiter for tea/coffee/toast and also ordered some fish that was on the menu to order from, which we never got, as we waited so long and couldnt get a waiters attention,we just left. Is over priced for what you get.
Expensive, unfriendly and often dirty
I stayed at this hotel recently for a weekend wedding and to be honest I wasn't expecting much as I had stayed previously for work. I was prepared for the small rooms and blah bedroom decor as well as the paper thin walls in the bedroom wing. I wasn't, however, prepared for:
The unfriendly staff - the woman at reception with the demenor of a prison matron who checked her watch before demanding payment for our two night stay. The bar staff who acted like they were doing us a favor when they brought a drink.
The dirt - the first night my sleeve stuck to the main bar, during the wedding reception the ladies bathroom was not once checked by a staff member.
The food - I was served fish well passed its sell by date a real pity given the hotel's proximity to rivers and the sea
Overpriced,very bad service, tiny rooms
We found the staff at faithlegg to be extremely rude. They never greeted guests on arrival and when buying drinks they were slow to take an order and slower to give the drinks as though serving guests was below them. The food and drinks there were overpriced(7euros for a sandwich. 5 euros for a baileys). The room was very small with barely enough room to negotiate around the obstacles.
On the night we were staying there was a wedding. A strange smell like sewerage spread through that room and we could smell it when we walked down the hall to our room. The guests were leaving the room almost getting sick from the smell.
The next morning we went for breakfast. The waiter didn't tell us that it was self service and we had to go into the next room for food. We sat there for five minutes before we saw someone else bring in their plate and figured it out. Nobody asked us if we wanted coffee or toast so finally i asked a waiter. He came back with two slices of toast for two people. He put them in front of my boyfriend.
Then on leaving the woman at reception checked her watch twice to make sure we weren't checking out late enough for her to charge us for another night. Then she goes "200+ euros", no "thank you" or "was everything all right?"
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and cant believe that they have a four star ranking. That would want to be reviewed by the bodies that awarded it.
My wife and I stayed for a weekend. I coudn't recommend Faithlegg highly enough. The facitities are brilliant. But it's the staff that make it brilliant. They actually look like they're enjoying their work. It's great to see you can still get service with a smile!! The golf course is beautiful. Jacuzzi has to be seen to be believed. The food was lovely, although some nicer veg would be good. Service in the Golf Club was a little below par. Excuse the pun!! Apart from that excellent all round!!!
Stayed for a weekend
Stayed here for a weekend package. Beautiful hotel, very relaxing.
Staff extremely helpful and friendly. However, restaurant wasn't as good as I had been led to believe.
All in all though, a good place for a relaxing weekend.
This place is just beautiful!! Recommend it for anyone! Quite a drive to the city but its the nicest placec iv'e ever stayed!

Betty-Anne learned a little more about her Irish heritage. Apparently, the Shannahan (O’Seanachain – Shanahan) clan backed the wrong king/lord in county Waterford in 1318, and their lands and possessions were taken from them. The clan then scattered throughout the south and west (Waterford to Limerick). In the late ...

I am now back at the hostel after grabbing some snacks for dinner since I was still full from lunch. I've showered and I'm just hanging out. It seems only the guys stay in this room since I've only seen 2 French girls twice but the boys are here all the time. I've showered and now I'm just going to chill. I'm getting up early again tomorrow to go to Cork and Blarney Castle!
Until tomorrow! Miss you all!
I am off to visit my first Irish Brittons today. I hopped on the dart train from Dublin to Greystones arriving at around 1:30pm. We travel along the coast line and although it is raining I'm enjoying seeing the sea.

... finally had a great salad. Lots of flavour. We head for Cork which is the 2nd largest city in the Republic. The Danes came first and then the Normans. It was a trading port in the 18th century which brought the shipping industry. St Finbar is the patron saint of Cork. I get a couple of photos of the churches in Cork from the bus. One has a salmon on top of the weather vane. We drive to Youghal which is a pretty harbour town that is off the highway these days but as it's Sunday ...
