Decaffeinated tea or coffee is also available if required as are a number of flavoured teas and green tea and staff members are on hand to assist with your choice. When cooking your breakfast we use locally sourced produce and support local where possible. By doing this we can ensure you experience every aspect of this region while you stay here with us. All our cooked breakfast options are cooked to order so your food arrives to you fresh and hot without sitting under heating lamps all morning.

Bellavista Hotel Bar
The Bellavista Hotel bar is an intimate, welcoming, traditional Irish bar. Situated at the front of the building, like our dining room it commands uninterrupted sea views which make the perfect backdrop. Our Bar is an ideal place to unwind with a pint or glass of wine or choose from our extensive choice of whiskeys. There is a balcony situated at the front of the bar extending the length of the hotel where you can sit and enjoy the views of Spike Island and the second largest natural harbour in the world. During the summer months each year 50 to 60 cruise liners sail up the harbour to berth or Cobh’s, deep water quay. Some of these liners can hold up to 5,000 passengers and are like floating cities, a sight that has to be seen to be believed. Our balcony is the perfect place to watch these massive liners come and go while having a drink.
Our bar is split into two areas with the bar and lounge. The lounge area is ideal for small functions such as christenings, family gatherings, retirement parties and everything in between. The capacity of our bar and lounge is 75 people so let us know if there is a function you would like us to cater for. For more information on our functions please check the “Occasions” page on our website or call us. Guests can also enjoy dinner in the lounge choosing from the China Sea restaurant’s menu and having it served in a less formal environment.
