Bantry Walking Festival June 1st & 2nd  

Over the bank holiday weekend on the 1st and 2nd of June, the Bantry Walking Festival will be taking place and we at the Westlodge Hotel would like to extend an invitation to participants and offer a relaxing and enjoyable stay in our family friendly hotel.

The Westlodge Hotel is located less than a mile from Wolfe Tone Square, which is the gathering point for all walking events.  Therefore the Westlodge is an ideal location for walking enthusiasts to stay the night before with packages starting form €45 per person Bed and Breakfast, or even make it a two day trip with two nights Bed and Breakfast and an evening meal at €99 per person sharing and prepare for the next day festivities. Then have use of our facilities to unwind and relax at the end of long day of exploring the immense natural beauty of West Cork. We also offer group packages, for further details please contact Annette O’Donovan on 027 50360.

The routes taken by the festival are classed in three categories, A for experienced walkers and hikers, B which requires some experience, and finally C for casual walkers, and include such locations as Hungry Hill, Whiddy Island and Sugarloaf, so there is something for everyone to enjoy much like the facilities we have at the Westlodge.

We offer a modern leisure centre, which is ideal for anyone who wishes to cool down and relax their aching muscles after their trek across west cork.  Our facilities include a full size swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Steam room and Gym.  We also have an indoor squash court, an outdoor tennis court as well as a pitch and putt course.  We can also provide massages upon request. (Pre-Booking Advised)

Our Sugarloaf Restaurant is so named as it has a fantastic view of The Sugarloaf which is one of the destinations of the walking festival.  So why not enjoy a fine meal whilst proudly reminiscing about your feat of climbing the Sugarloaf.

As well as our Sugarloaf Restaurant, which is open from 6:30pm – 9:00pm, we will be serving food in our Carbery Bar from 12:30pm – 9:00pm. 

We will also be playing host to some local west cork bands in our Hannie Murphys Bar on the Saturday and Sunday of the Bank Holiday. 

So why not except our invitation for a warm and welcoming stay at The Westlodge Hotel where there is much craic and banter to be had for people from all walks of life.
