Our Review of Springfort Hall Country House Hotel

One of Cork's best kept secrets. Springfort Country House Hotel has been in the Walsh family for 24 years. Mrs Eileen Walsh and her son Paul manage the house, with family values and traditional Irish hospitality at the forefront of their style. In the local area, Springfort has always been known for good country house fayre and as a divine wedding venue. No surprise. Spacious and well kept grounds and magnificent period house with original features equals a dream wedding. The house dates back to the 18th Century, and as such, possesses the large elegant proportions that marked the architectural style of those days.  Visitors are welcomed and checked in then invited into the drawing room to enjoy tea or coffee and home made scones. Accommodation is in 49 large rooms with ensuite bathrooms  Superior rooms come with separate sitting areas, and all rooms with hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities, garment presses and multichannel TV. Goodnight Goodies includes hot chocolate and chocolate bar, and a host of romantic indulgences like Sparkling wine or Champagne and Strawberries. The Relax and Unwind option includes a good book,  bottle of red wine and a Bath Bomb to soak away those stresses. Breakfast in the morning, served in the Lime Tree Restaurant, offers local Apple or Beetroot Juice, a selection of cereals and homemade porridge with cream and honey, and the full Irish. The Lime Tree also serves lunch and dinner daily.  For more casual dining, the bar is open to residents and the public and serves a good selection of dishes with specials of the day. Elaine O'Flynn is Head Chef at Springfort, overseeing all menus for restaurant and bar with her special brand of creative cooking,  and use of local produce with a twist. Springfort is a popular wedding venue - with its pristine gardens and civil marriage licence. Couples can host a drinks reception in the drawing room or outside on the lawns in good weather, before retiring to a separate, self-contained banquet suite for the wedding feast.  A characterful conservatory style space which was the original stables. Muslin drapes are lit with fairy lights behind, tables swagged with linen and bows. Majestic silver candelabras and dramatic table flower arrangements command visual attention. Springfort Hall also has conference and Syndicate meeting rooms, with full facilities of the hotel and accommodation bookable as required.
