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

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

From the moment I walked through the doors of The Bridge House I was taken on a journey of the "senses". A mix of eclectic art, furniture and collectables. Mona is an amazing host, generous, kind and friendly. Breakfast is 2 course, fresh quality local produce served on a collection of fine china that changes daily. Mona always keeps it... More

All that I say about the Bridge house won´t be enough to describe so amazing is it. Mona is a wonderful person, she wants you feel very well during your stay and of course that she gets it . The house is gorgeous. All the details are concerned with dedication. The room is so beautiful, very cosy and warm. The... More

I do not have enough room here or time to tell you what a special experience with Mona. It is extraordinaire. She is so kind. The room as well as the bathroom, kept us occupied for hours, discovering each of Monas treasures that created the uniqueness of each room since we stayed up most of the night worrying. The beds...
