Stayed here recently and was well impressed with every aspect. The staff are lovely and from the moment we arrived they made us feel very welcome. Walked the magnificent beach and will definitely go back in the summer.

Great staff, good rooms, great location.I stayed there with my wife and we had a great break, walk on the beach, swim in the pool,nice breakfast. And of course the weather in West Cork came out to play on one of those pet spring days.
