I spent 3 great days in Skibbereen, a colourful little town full of nice people and Mona is certainly no exception! she is like her house: welcoming , warm , artistic and she does everything to make you feel good. Art and colours are everywhere: in the decoration of course, but also in the breakfast! Not mentioning her B&B is... More

If you are bored with all the usual B&Bs and dull hotel rooms. Then Bridge House will provide you a welcome surprise. So different to any place you may have stayed at before. We visited for a few nights and we were treated like VIPs. Mona runs a very different kind of B&B. Victorian decorations are everywhere. A feast for... More

We stayed 2 nights with Mona in the Bridge House and had a fabulous stay. After a recent week in a Hilton in Ohio (bleak, boring and characterless) this was a wonderful contrast. Everywhere you look there are interesting and carefully chosen treasures, and Mona's character shines through. She made us feel very welcome and as everyone else says, the... More

I spent three nights in Mona's Bridge House. I was delighted to see the victorian furniture and decoration of the house. In my opinion, every detail is important and this place is a good example of this philosophy. My rest was deep and relaxed, and in the morning I felt full of energy... But the best was just about to... More

My second stay in this unique and unusual boutique b&b did not disappoint. A charming victorian home with all period features, themed rooms and decoration that leaves you lost for words. Mona is a fabulous host and her breakfast is quite honestly the best i've experienced bar none. I stayed here for five nights while working in the area and... More

We stayed in Bridge House for one night only wish it could have been for longer, it's a fantastic place to stay. Mona is a wonderful lady and her hospitality is second to none. Just wait till you get breakfast simply Devine. Highly recommended.

It was a lovely stay with an really great breakfast. I have never seen such interesting rooms. The rooms are very clean and you stay very central in Skibbereen. Mona is a nice women and she can tell you great places you have to see. All in all it was an awesome stay I will never forget!

My fiancee and I have fallen head over heels for Mona and her guest house. From the very start communicating with Mona via emails and phone calls about booking a room to meeting her in the flesh she was very polite, efficient, warm and welcoming. Her charisma, style and sense of humour made us feel we had known her for... More

Last weekend my partner and I landed in Skib with no accomodation booked. A series of random events took us to the door of Mona Best's Bridge House Victorian Accomodation. Instantly welcomed and immediatly intrigued with the decor, we needed to look no further. A cornucopia of vintage and eccentric antiques filled every wall and nook. Our bedroom was a... More

My 7 days and nights staying at Bridge House Skibbereen were wonderful. The decor immediately surprised, however, my surprise settled most quickly and became curiosity, wonder and interest, tinged with humour. Mona, my gracious, generous and gregarious hostess, was a delightful local person who was able to suggest points of interest in West Cork, as well as make myself feel... More
