Historical Traveller Reviews of Hayfield Manor Hotel
Staff were a pleasure - first time for ages that I have really felt that they would do anything to help.
Didnt get to eat dinner there - as we went out into town - but they let us use the library for drinks until the early hours. And breakfast was fantastic - not sure I've ever had better.
Truly - a pleasure - and will try to use the facilities next time. Definately gets my vote.
An excellent 5 nightsfrom CormacMcCaughey
As I stood by the open fire in reception early one morning, I conducted a short experiment, and it was only 60secs of looking lost in reception until there was a member of staff wanting to know if there was anything that they could do for me. Fantastic attitude and attention to their guests. I understand for the 88 rooms that there are over 90 staff employed.
If I where to try to influence the hotel, I’d tell them……
I really enjoyed myself at the hotel – because of the attitude of the staff that I experienced. Though, I didn’t enjoy the exercise that I needed to do to work of the great lunches, heavy dinners and yes the beer. I want them to continue to value their most important asset – no not the building – but the staff. In return, I’ll continue to tell people great things about this hotel.
Whilst I’m here;
Jennie in the bar had to be my favourite – she made me very welcome each night, a good host, always in the background ensuring that I was happy.
Nina on reception was very professional, as was Louis, Palmen - a night porter that I met on the last night was out of the same mould. There were also some other staff members worth a mention I didn’t get their names – but you’ll recognise them as the tall Restaurant Managers who were extremely professional – but not stuffy, the jockey sized restaurant manager – very approachable, and the partially bearded manager in Perrotts.
Talk in the bar with the locals and other guests was wide and varied but included the history of the hotel, discussions around the existence of a ghost in one of the rooms, the Beamish Red that was served – I never tried it.
This bit is best read out loud to others…
Close your eyes, take a breath and relax. Imagine a cold night, gravel crunching under your feet, fresh bitter wind whistling around your face that stirs the leaves fallen from the trees outside the front door. The door into reception is welcoming and you are warmed by the open fire, it relaxes you as the quiet efficiency of checking in is completed – bags are whisked of to the room as your eyes begin to explore the comfortable but formal reception. Light music from the piano under the stairs, conversation from the bar, and small groups of people within the library and the other formal – but comfortable rooms off reception. Its welcoming – the atmosphere cuddles you – brings out a smile – I’m home. Well the next best thing to it anyway – and yes it’s a bit bigger with 88 rooms.
I’ll be back – not soon – but sometime.
Hard to find? Nonsense - get a taxi, GPS or better directions – that’s part of the charm – its an Oasis of peacefulness.
Research your optionsfrom Ozblossom
Cork is a large city, and as others have stated, I would not feel comfortable walking back from an evening promenade in this district in the dark. To sum up - although lovely attention from the staff, we would not return. Instead, we would look for upscale B&B accomodations between Blarney & Cobh - both day visits to these locations were lovely. Our advise - research your outlying options prior to booking in central Cork.
Loved the Hayfieldfrom Lindakh
Lovely stayfrom Ibbie
Felt Like A Homefrom ptricia
Yes, it is difficult to find. We arrived without a dinner reservation. The young lady who checked us in, then escorted us to the dining captain and stood by us until we had made a dinner plan. This act of handholding meant a great deal to two tired and frazzled travelers.
The room was lovely, had all the goodies (slippers, robes, bottled water by the bed, and a wonderful hairdryer plugged into the dresser drawer in the room). We had room # 223 - a little larger than the ones on either side and had a large picture window overlooking the front entraceway.
When we mentioned the Hayfield to the owners of guesthouses we stayed at in other towns, they would always say what a lovely place it is. You can depend on Irish word of mouth - it's a small country. We hope to return again soon!

Top Local Tips for Cork
Just as Louis Or bart The door men in the hotel know all there is about the area and how to get around
Irish music For Irish jigging music and Guiness try the Sin 'e pub in the city, the more Guiness the better the jigging
Finding your way around Cork Give yourself plenty of time and expect to get lost at least once on the way. We don't do signage in Ireland, and leading tourists along only to leave them bewildered at an un-marked T-junction is our speciality. Bring a good map, a GPS, and a good sense of direction and humour, you'll need them all.
