Stayed in Aran Lodge for 5 nights last week. The accommodation was very good. Excellent breakfast every morning. The family were very welcoming and had lots of information about the local area. Ideal location for touring the area.

We stayed in Deirdre's lovely b&b for two very enjoyable nights . Breakfast was really good, lots of fresh fruit and great selection. Deirdre is a great hostess and the internet connection was the fastest we had all week! Well worth a visit. The views for breakfast were memorable over bantry bay

It was our second time at Aran Lodge and we were not disappointed. Ideally placed for touring West Cork (and visiting our friends at the Eagle Point Caravan/Camping park), the accommodation is very comfortable and the breakfasts are splendid - lovely gardens too,

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Aran Lodge. We were well fed, rooms were modern & fresh, and the hosts were second to none. I'd recommend it to a friend anytime. And Bantry is a beautiful part of the world with lots to do and see.

My wife and I stayed at Aran Lodge with our family in August 2013. The rooms were clean and were well appointed. Ballylickey is a really beautiful place with plenty to see and do in the area for at least a week. We enjoyed eating at some of the local pubs in the evenings as they had live music. The... More

We stayed at Aran Lodge for two nights. Deirdre was a delightful hostess. The breakfasts were superb - from the fresh fruit and yoghurt to the "full Irish". It is within short walking distance of Eagle Point Caravan site - ideal as we were visiting caravanning "in-laws". Our room was comfortable, ultra clean and well equipped. Aran Lodge B&B was... More

Our stay at Aran Lodge was purely by accident as everywhere was full due to a long weekend and the fact that they had just had a cancellation. Unwittingly I had emailed Joe several months before we came to Ireland asking about family history in the area. It was one random email sent out. Then I didn't have time to... More

recently had the pleasure of staying at a wonderful b&b. The view from the lodge was beautiful, it overlooked scenic Bantry Bay. The rooms were very clean and confortable with great service and a daily outstanding breakfast meal. Joe and Deidre Oconnell were very gracious and informative about the surrounding area and special places to visit. I am looking forward... More
