I would have been happy enough just with the historic farmhouse, even happier with the delicious breakfast(Noreen even got me to eat black pudding). But the hospitality from Noreen and Renzy made us feel as if we were there on a family visit. Clonakilty is a lovely little village, and Duvane house a perfect stop-off on your way around the...

Noreen gave us a wonderful welcome and made us feel very much at home during our brief stay. Upon our arrival we were served tea and biscuits in the guests’ sitting room which boasts some beautiful furniture and antiques – as does the house in general, which is both an elegant example of Georgian architecture and a cosy, traditional farmhouse....

Warmth, generosity, courtesy, kindness, and a perfectly poised and professional approach to offering immaculate and comfortable lodging to guests is clearly Noreen's forte, and she proved that in a single night for our brief visit recently. This very well-kept, beautifully decorated, well-furnished, and gracious vintage home was a pleasure to stay in, a quiet nest to sleep in, and a... More

Noreen and Renzy are the most welcoming hosts you'd ever meet. Two visiting American ladies and I stayed here and were overwhelmed with the hospitality, the generosity and everything. The entire place was superbly clean. The bedrooms were better than 5 star hotels. The breakfast was cooked to perfection and with fresh ingredients. You will love the place and the... More

A real farmhouse experience with Noreen the perfect host! Excellent local knowledge and many stories to tell! Lovely breakfasts with homemade jams/bread...all beautifully presented. We stayed two nights and all felt very 'at home' here. Thank you Noreen. Phil, Lesley, Neill & Mary.

Noreen greeted us on arrival with tea or water and biscuits. She had lots of knowledge of the local area which was helpful. We had a large room more than adequate for our needs. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of options. We would recommend for a short break away.

We stayed for 3 nights at Duvane House and could not have felt more welcome. From the tea and homemade currant bread when we arrived, Noreen and Rensie went out of their way to make sure we wanted for nothing. The family room was lovely and comfortable, with many thoughtful extras such as bottled water. We could have enjoyed the... More

It would be unfair to let this opportunity pass without praising this excellent experience with Noreen and Rence in their beautiful home. It was an honour to stay there. They were lovely people and attentive hosts.

We found the Duvane House in a B and B guide while traveling. We wanted the beautiful, quiet, farmhouse experience. Noreen welcomed us and got us settled. She made us tea and gave us tips and pointers about the area. The house is beautiful and Noreen is so sweet. The gardens are so pretty and she told us about many... More

I loved staying with Noreen and her husband. She is an older lady with more energy than folk half her age! The georgian house was built, as mentioned in other reviews, as a summer house for a Bishop. The amazing fact is that the house has remained in the family since the death of the Bishop, and the beautiful antique... More
