My wife and l together with our little Westie Ben, stayed at Carbery Cottage. Julia and Mike are wonderful hosts and provided us with the optimum comfort. The room was spacious and bed very comfortable. All facilities were presented in an exemplary fashion and the view from the bedroom window 'breathtaking'. Breakfast was delightful and could be pre ordered the... 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...

So sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at Carbery Cottage, Our location is as it is and obviously a level of research is necessary and a means of transport is always recommended. We will willingly offer transport to walkers, if requested, and taxi's are available. The bathrooms are clean and spacious admittedly they are due for upgrade this winter.... More

We stayed here over Christmas and had the most fantastic relaxing time - the food was just splendid - really tasty and fresh. Such a nice time.

I couldn't fault this place or the people who own it. Our dogs were allowed, Julia and Mike couldn't be more helpful in telling you where to visit. The views from the house are breathtaking and I have never, even in expensive hotels, had a better choice of breakfast. All of them beautifully cooked with a choice of their own... More

Due to a misunderstanding with a pretentious but unfriendly guest house outside Durrus, I found myself without a bed for the Friday of the June Bank Holiday. So I decided to drive out on the Sheep's Head and see what I could find. I called in to Carbery House and couldn't believe my luck: spectacular views, lovely hosts, and a... More

Make sure you have clear directions before you go, but once you are there you fall in love with this rural B&B. Well appointed, spacious; delightful hosts, excellent breakfasts, magnificent scenery. The Wild Atlantic Way has an appealing unspoiled attraction---no chain stores, nor big hotels, nor crowds to unsettle the relaxing, invigourating seaside atmosphere, & rural walks.
