Situated on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in the small town of Glengarriff, West Cork, the Eccles Hotel & Spa has a long history, and was established in 1745 - both Oscar Wilde and WB Yates have stayed here.
If you are looking for a mind and body rejuvenation experience, we recommend the Spa, especially the outdoor seaweed baths.
As well as relaxing in one of the 57 refurbished and comfortable rooms, this location is ideal for exploring West Cork and West Kerry. Don’t miss the spectacular Healy Pass which is approximately 25 Kilometres from Glangarriff, it’s like something from an Italian movie.
