This is a fabulous B&B. Great rooms and a great host. The breakfast has to be seen to be believed. The rooms are comfortable and all facilities you could require. Very comfy bed and well stocked bathroom. Great breakfast in the morning and a very charming host. Be sure to sign the Visitors Book.

We were wandering down the main street of Skiberreen when we happened across a wide open and inviting doorway. Initially we though it might be a fancy restaurant but were pleasantly surprised to see the award for "Ireland's Most Unusual B&B" boldly announced in brass beside the door. We popped our heads in and immediately we wanted to stay. The... More

Truly an amazing experience. This might be a B&B, but it's much more than that. it's not about every modern amenity, it's about a journey back into Victorian splendour, the display of antiques is truly astonishing, that pervades the entire property including all the varied rooms, and demands the attention of all but the brain dead!! Mona is eccentric, no... More

Most leisurely breakfast of all time chatting to fellow guests and Mona who owns Bridge House. Breakfast consisted of Fresh fruit - melon, strawberries, twist of orange, berries and then Clonakilty Sausages and Bacon, and homemade brown bread with Olive tapanade, Gubeen Cheese, all sources from the local market. Eggs were poached to perfection. Mona, we have a great time,... More

Wow is all I can say. What a fantastic quirky fun place to stay. The breakfast was the most amazing breakfast I have ever had. Mona the owner just makes it so special. You can't get better than this. Stay here you'd be mad not to 🌞

This is by far the most fascinating, personal, engaging accommodation I've ever stayed in. The house itself has a million and 2 unusual items on the walls, shelves (including your live-in goldfish in each bedroom), and in the corners, each with a story, or failing that, the ability to make you wonder where Mona found such a thing. If you... More

We had a very welcoming, fun and relaxed time with Mona at the Bridge House Hotel. We were welcomed like family and would highly recommend this B and B. Skibbereen is a great place to have a little break, highly recommended.

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
