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.

One of the best B&B accommodation we have stayed in. Mike & Julie made us feel so welcome and the food was exceptional. We stayed for 4 nights and there was so much to do & see. A cosy guest room full of books, tourist info & history with a view to die for. The little homely touches at every... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carbery cottage. Having stayed in some pet friendly hotels/accomodation in Ireland, we were amazed and delighted when we discovered that our pet Gonzo would be staying with us. Carbery cottage epitomizes what dog friendly accommodation should be. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

We sayed here for a few nights last year. What a little gem. Mike and Julia are very friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble. The breakfasts are fantastic. We had a very comfortable ground floor room with its own little patio outside, which was ideal for the dog. They love animals and have a variety of ducks, chickens, goats etc.... More
