Bit of a drive from Durrus but definitely worth the effort. We arrived tired and hungry and somewhat dispirited by the problem of having a small dog with us, who was unwelcome at many establishments. Not so here. Julia and Mike rustled up a lovely dinner with not much notice, polished silver and candles adding to the feeling of care... More

Mike& Julia were very hospitable. The homemade breakfast was delicious; I had the fresh duck eggs, there was a sumptuous supply of food. We stayed in The Fastnet Suite – spectacular view on awakening. The room was spacious with everything we needed including a hair dryer and luxury bathroom toiletries, a plentiful supply of fresh towels. The B&B is most... More

We, together with our spoilt Spaniel, have recently returned from a six night stay at Carbery Cottage and we enjoyed every minute of it. Julia and Mike could not have been more welcoming and were the Perfect Hosts. Our room, on the ground floor, was clean, very comfortable and well appointed, with its own private patio. As our dog insisted... More

We stayed for two nights at this exquisite house. Spectacular views & great location for visiting local sites. Our room must rate amongst the best we've experienced, all & more than you would normally hope for. The large dining room table made for a lovely setting to enjoy the company of the other guests whilst 'tucking in' to the most... More

Beautiful setting overlooking Dunmanus Bay with access to Sheep's Head, Durrus, Crookhaven, Bantry and Mizen Head. Very much a pet-friendly guest house. Fresh eggs from the farm every morning and lovely home-cooked breakfast. Mike and Julia could not have been more welcoming! Tea and cake on arrival. It's a few km out from Durrus and you would ideally need a... More

My girlfriend and I had some friends' wedding nearby so chose the Carbery Cottage because of its proximity and other good reviews. They deserve the reviews. It's a lovely place, with lots of animals around the place (outside) and excellent scenery. We weren't very adventurous with our breakfast requests but they nailed it. It's the little things; scrambled egg was... More

Welcome tea and cake. Amazing views. Clean rooms are comfortable but many items have room for improvement. Bath room is a no go: - shower is closing with a double adhesive tape - noise comparable to a hair-dryer if you take a shower - bath room fittings are used up and the touch&feel is ... bad Remote location and NOT...
