First time to stay at this resort and will be back soon. Facilities are everything you would expect and more. Location and setting are idyllic, but what sets this resort apart in my opinion are the staff. Although generally quite young, all are absolutely professional, courteous, engaged and obliging. It’s unfortunately very rare these days to find such a switched on team especially around holiday time so they absolutely deserve special mention.
We had a 5 Star Christmas Party in Fota Island Resort and it was an amazing event. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and then escorted into a private reception area where we listened to some Jazz music while waiting for friends and colleagues to arrive. There was a Gin bar that served the most beautiful pink Gin with seasonal berries. When the function room doors opened we were greeted by a outstanding display seasonal decorations, candelabras and Christmas trees. Once everyone was served a glass of wine, we waited eagerly for our starters and main course. I couldn’t fault the quality of the food and timeliness of the delivery. Afterwards, we were invited back into the private reception area for desserts, tea and coffee. A wonderful way to end a beautiful meal being able to mingle with work colleagues while waiting for the band to start. What an amazing start to Christmas, thank you Fota Island Resort for making our experience a memorable one.
We recently held our 3 day Wedding event at Fota and what a fantastic event it was. Our guests, the majority who had travelled great distances loved the resort and facilities. The staff were excellent and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you for making our Wedding a great experience.
Very impressive hotel and grounds , ideal for families visiting cork or fota wildlife park . Staff down to earth and professional. 5 star hotel without 5 star fuss . Great value for b&b . Very relaxing bar and cozy alcoves to relax away . Food choice was Well varied and vast wine menu for all budgets . The majority of staff were from Cork which is a bonus probably the reason for the friendliness vibe throughout the hotel. Looking forward to going back with kids
