From the minute we arrived mairead made us feel very welcome. Room was very spacious, stunning, beautifully decorated, clean, and a very comfy bed with tv, tea and coffee making facilities. Great selection of breakfast with homemade breads and bakes. better than alot of hotels I ve stayed in before. Will definitely return.

Found this treasure by accident half way between Macroom and Killarney, words cannot describe the welcome we received when we arrived, Tea and home made scones once we were settled in our room which by the way was 5 star in every respect. Breakfast the following morning was to die for, no buffet here but freshly cooked and the variety... More

We started our 7 nights in Ireland after 15 Days in the UK (May 2013), so all-in-all we had lots of B&B experience on this wonderful trip. Well, Mairead & Johnny provided us with the best experience of all. What welcoming hosts--I wish we lived down the road from them because I'm sure we would be fast friends. Mairead provided... More

I've been calling here now with the past 30 years and each time I come back its better than the last. I have never come across attention to detail like it. Mairead will ask you unassuming questions about your dietary likes and dislikes and when breakfast time comes, she has taken note of and preferences and has served accordingly. I... More

I enjoyed my one night stay in Cul Aodha so much that I felt i had to write this, my first ever review . The warmth I felt when even booking the room over the phone, and then the welcome with tea and buns just started off my time so well. Not only did I have a great time in... More

Staying with Mairead and Johnny is like being at home but better as your on your holidays. You won't find a more welcoming environment than here. We arrived from our long journey and were instantly  greeted with a smile, tea/coffee and homemade tasty cakes. Our spacious bedroom with en-suite was warm and inviting and beautifully furnished. Beds are lovely and... More

We were amazed by our hostess's warmth and welcome! Although it was a busy day bringing in the silage for the farm and she was feeding all the helpers, we were greeted as family, offered food and drink and given a map to take on the walk we had planned. The facilities were perfect, and next morning the breakfast table... More

This was not only our first bed and breakfast experience in Ireland, but our first bed and breakfast experience ever, and the bar was set INCREDIBLE high! We arrived tired from a long day of driving and were immediately greeted with not only a warm welcome, but sandwiches and tea! The hospitality was beyond words, and you could not ask... More

We arrived at this lovely house travel-worn and tired, and were immediately offered sandwiches and hot drinks. We declined this very kind offer as we were going out to eat, but we were still given a large carafe of water and ice in a vacuum flask to refresh ourselves. Our room was very large, absolutely spotless, with a separate table... More
