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

The Sheepshead Peninsula has to be one of the most precious parts of Ireland.....and Mike and Julia are the best hosts imaginable.....providing whatever you need - helpful hints of places to eat or hear music, or find art....or wonderful breakfasts.....or just peace and quiet.

I found it difficult and time-consuming to find pet-friendly places to stay in, such as B&Bs, guest houses, and hotels, for just a night or two, (rather than say a week's rental) . Fortunately we were lucky to have stumbled upon Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge near Durrus in West Cork. Beautiful location, friendly proprietors and wonderful breakfasts. They love animals... More

How can I start? Mike and Julia are like the friends you have never met. The welcome we got from them was so warm. They spoilt us with the one amazing breakfast after the other and whenever they could helped us out. They e.g. booked us on a whale watching-trip, and we just had to drive there and enjoy the...

Carbery Cottage is a lovely place to stay. Mike and Julia are very welcoming hosts and the house is in a great location. Room and bathroom were very nice and the breakfasts were excellent. It was lovely that our dog was made welcome too.

We stayed for one night in this magical place and loved it! We live in Cork and run a small B&B ourselves, so we really appreciate what it takes to run a B&B. We took one night off from our own place to have a break, and we could not have chosen better. Mike and Julia have a wonderful place... More

I can't say enough about Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge! I come back year after year for a very good reason. The location is heavenly, the B&B is exceptional, and the owners are absolutely wonderful.
