This was my second time staying here and just as great as I remembered. On my first stay three years ago, we arrived late in the evening. As we left the next morning, I said I wish I could have stayed and just gazed at the beautiful gardens and the view of the bay. As we planned out trip this... More

Have just spent two nights at Stanley House and wish we could have stayed longer. A warm smiling welcome from Nancy made us feel instantly at home. Our rooms were spotless and comfortable, the views were superb and the breakfast, so lovingly presented, was the best we have ever experienced in our travels. We have vowed to return and can...

We had a great 2 nights stay in Schull. The B&B was a great choice in a place we didn't know that well. Nancy was a great host not to mention her delicious breakfast. We couldn't get enough of the homemade soda bread. Everything was fresh and very tasteful! The place was spotless, bathroom well equipped, free wifi, a truly... More

We had a few nights in Bantry Bay staying at the Maritime Hotel, wish we had just stayed here instead. This B&B is far superior to anywhere else in the surrounding area! Well appointed cosy rooms, clean, free wifi, en suite, every thing you may need, including electric blankets on the beds! Wonderful breakfast, huge choice. Beautiful house and gardens... More

My daughter and I just got back from a 3 week trip to Ireland. Every night's B&B was carefully researched, and so we enjoyed lots of excellent B&B's and welcoming hosts. However, out of all of them, Nancy's place stands out as our favorite. She is truly gifted at what she does. She clearly enjoys taking good care of her... More

We found Nancy's Stanley House over seven years ago when we first visited Schull. It immediately became the standard by which we compare any other place we've stayed, and none have met her high standard. The rooms are immaculately clean. Nothing compares to pressing your face into her lovely aired sheets after a long transatlantic flight. The location is great... More

Looking for a place to stay we randomly choose Stanley House (we passed by its sign). It's easy to find, parking is spacious. We felt welcome right away. Nancy showed us the room with the gorgeous view on the bay. Good tip on where to dine out. After returning to Stanley House we were offered evening tea at the fireplace.... More

We stayed at Stanley House for the first time at the beginning of September 2014 - what is left to say that hasn't been said before! from the minute you walk through the door until you leave, Nancy Brosnan makes you feel as if you are the only visitors staying - the personal greeting and welcome we had made us...
