Nestled in the East Cork countryside is Barnabrow house and neighbouring cottages. I was here for a wonderful wedding weekend. Staying in the cottage called Sadie, we were impressed by the amount of space the kitchen and living room area consisted of. If you pushed the furniture to the walls you could have a barn dance or ceile. It was... More

FANTASTIC. I attended a wedding reception here in mid-June. The ambiance was amazing and the food was delicious, undoubtedly the best sea bass I have ever eaten. The rooms were extremely clean and elegantly decorated and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. There was clearly much thought that went into the design and small... More

We stayed for a night in the cottages with friends and it was great having all that space and chill out areas! The only thing I'd say is upstairs it was two double beds in a huge open space, didn't bother is as we knew the other couple well! Downstairs was another two separate bedrooms In the morning we cooked... More

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. I do apologise though, if the lights in the laneway were either not switched on or not working. Indeed it is a dark journey without those lights and I will check out what happened there. Anyway thank you for the otherwise positive review. More

At an intimate wedding here last weekend..beautiful venue, superb food. Rooms were full of character, comfie, clean, spacious. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. Whole place has a quirky ambiance about it. Would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding venue for small numbers..50ish. Chef doesn't like serving sausages for breakfast tho! Other than that..bravo!!

We stopped here by chance to look at the donkeys! We were allowed look around the grounds and given a guided tour almost by the manager a lovely lady. We were v impressed with the rooms etc and if I get married would consider this a special place to hold the whole affair. Hidden gem really

Went here last Saturday with friends for the afternoon tea for women's little Christmas. Was very enjoyable. Was decorated really prettily. It was very busy so there was a wonderful atmosphere. So much delicious food, excellent value.

So glad that you enjoyed the Little Women's Afternoon Tea Party. This was the first time that we did this - we thought it would be a relaxing way to catch up with friends after Christmas before everyone had to part again. It seems to have been a success - people liked the food and the music. We hope to... More

We got married here on New Years Eve. It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The venue is unique, quaint & quirky. It is very well suited for more intimate weddings especailly if many of your guests will stay over. You have free reign to decorate as you like to add personal touches. The staff were outstanding. Couldnt be... More

Quaint and carefully decorated accommodation only a short stumble from the reception hall. The food was incredible! Excellent at any restaurant, but simply stellar given this was a banqueting event. Breakfast was equally brilliant. Nestled deep in the valleys of rural Cork, I was wowed!

We were a large group and stayed at the cottages for 5 nights. This place has a great location if you want to be away from the daily hustle and bustle, and is located in a quiet countryside. During this period, we attended the wedding reception of a friend and the arrangements were great! The food was amazing, and the... More
