The beds were really comfortable, and Neal is well set-up to provide for walkers on the Beara Way. The location is fine, just a few minutes from the edge of town and about 10 to the center of Castletownbere. The breakfast was good. The showers had lots of umpf, and Neal is a great host. Recommended!

Neal was an excellent host, and the property was great! We were in a separate building at the back, very quiet although there were at least four rooms there. Excellent breakfast, and as walkers on the Beara Way, this was a great location. A five minute walk from the edge of town, and ten minutes to the centre. Thanks!

Beds were very comfy , breakfast was average, orange juice not fresh, fruit salad apples and oranges (tinned on second day). Walking distance to town though not sure if owner approved of late nights in the pub as he was keen to point out that we make no noise at night-we are two middle aged ladies who usually tell our...

Very welcoming and friendly host, the rooms are immaculately clean, the beds is the most comfortable I've had travelling for a while. Great spot close to the town (5 mins walking time). Normal range of breakfast selections, very accommodating for breakfast arrangements.

The accommodation itself was fantastic and the scenery was just amazing all topped off by the owner Neily ( Cornelius ) who accommodated us at very short notice , a gentleman and definitely my first port of call when I return to this part of the country

Me and my friend were lucky - they were almost full except of one family room. The room was really big, clean and nice, with all amenities that you need. Good breakfast with variety of choice. Booth owners nice and chatty.

A wonderful stay. Cornelius has a beautiful, clean and welcoming B&B. A Bord Failte 4**** with 5***** service. Everything in this B&B has been expertly built and customed made to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I couldn't rate it any higher. A perfect home away from home while touring the Beara peninsula. I had a beautiful room with... More

We stayed for a night in Summerhill. It is a lovely house, spotlessly clean with everything you'd need. The breakfast was great,it kept us going till evening. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. It was great value and we'd stay again when visiting the area.

Me and two friends went on a biking trip in west cork and stayed here for one night. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip.
