We just stayed at Blairscove for two nights and were deeply disappointed with the proprietors handling of a scary situation we encountered. My husband and I were heading off to dinner in our car and on the rocky disheveled driveway we encountered another car coming our way. My husband being the courteous and mannerly man he is tried to pull... More

Wow. The view from our Loft at Blairscove was priceless!! The green hills and meadows of Mizen Head and Sheep's Head rolled down into the Atlantic waters before our eyes through huge panoramic windows facing the western sunset. The suite was incredibly well done, quite modern and very comfortable all the same. The 4-5 course dinner was to die for,... More

We stayed in the Smokehouse room. Lovely and modern, spacious living area with view over the bay and hills, fireplace, gorgeous little kitchen with all you need for a short stay. Dining table where they serve breakfast in the apartment each morning at your chosen time is delightful. Bathroom is nice and modern too, although disconcerting with window at floor... More

I originally thought this would be a boring B&B when my fiance took me here but it was actually amazing. It has London/Paris quality food. Amazing views over the bay (request on booking). Beautiful light. Lovely staff. There's also an amazing local restaurant called The Good Things Cafe which was some of the best food I have ever had anywhere... More

We stayed at Blairscove House's Dunmanus Pier Cottage October 12 - 23, 2013. This charming self-catering stone cottage, 15 minutes SW of Blairscove House on R591, sleeps 4, has a well-equipped kitchen and has all the necessities of home. The cottage sits by a small pier that juts into Dunmanus Bay. In the evenings fishermen come in with their catches.... More

The location is a bit out of the way but it is peaceful with great views, the accommodation is lovely and each apartment is decorated differently. We had dinner both night and it was excellent, there was a starters table that you could pick from, a good... More
