    We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.

    We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.

    You will stay for three nights at the 3-star Celtic Ross, a family owned hotel, picturesquely set on the West Cork coastline on the Wild Atlantic Way, with the historic cathedral town of Rosscarbery on its doorstep.
