  • We were rained out in Killarney so drove to here and played the Barryscourt course in perfectly dry conditions. A nice layout in good condition. 
  • My buddy and I had the fortunate chance to get in a round while on vacation in Ireland when the wives decided to go shopping for the day in Cork. The hotel concierge recommended Fota Island Golf Resor...  read more »
  • I can honestly say that very few , if any , of our group will eat in the golf club restaurant . The food is terrible , overpriced , service non existent , no atmosphere . If I were to rate all the gol...  read more »
  • Just a fabulous all round experience - i attended recently for a training course. Location, set up of room and food provide was second to none. Wifi available for all guests. Bar / full menu available. Gym / Spa on site. Beautiful surrounding areas in which you can walk.
  • A nicely designed modern elegant hotel that doesn't feel anything special. The check in took a long time and rooms weren't ready until quite late. I wasn't that bothered as I thought I'd enjoy some tea and cakes. Unfortunately the staff seemed to ignore me until I eventually went and asked for what I wanted. When it arrived it wasn't correct and took a while for the staff member to return with the rest of my food. Maybe I was just there on a bad day but this seemed to be the trend for the entire stay.
  • to be honest a bit dissappointing, the rooms were fine but the place wasn't very clean, staff seemed disinterested and the service was poor. felt like there was no one in charge really
  • This place is a true private island...When you get here, you dont want to leave. It has everything you need - spa, gym, bar, restaurant, golf and range of lodges and hotel rooms.
  • Was a guest in this "5 Star" hotel over the Christmas period of 2015. Nothing about this place other than the name suggests that it is five star. Having read a few earlier reviews prior to going to FIR I thought maybe the low reviews were a bit heavy handed. Having experienced the hotel for myself the reviews were spot on. If you are a couple wanting to have a relaxing weekend then avoid this place at all costs. The place was full of uncontrolled children. The weekend we were staying there, there was a private wedding on on the Saturday but the children's table was moved from the wedding dining hall to the formal dining room where non wedding guests were eating. It was mayhem. I would not recommend the FIR to anyone. There are better four star hotels in the area. Save your money and try somewhere else.
