This was an amazing B&B in Schull--in the extreme southwest of Ireland right along the coast. The views from the back sitting room are incredible and Nancy was a great host. Our rooms were clean and spacious--and I would highly recommend the Stanley House.

This is the cleanest B&B that I have ever seen. The view from the sun room downstairs is the best view I have ever seen from inside a house. The breakfast is the best I have ever been served, especially in terms of selection. Struggling to find any fault, the room was somewhat compact and it was probably too far... More

I can only agree with all the positive comments made by other reviewers. Nancy offers the warmest welcome and we felt very much at home. The situation is stunning with magnificent views. Some people can be put off if their bedroom does not have a view, but this seems to be a shame as views are readily enjoyed from the... More

Loved my stay with Nancy, (my ninth time!) it really is a home from home. She is a wonderful host and adds that personal touch. I love the peace a quite and wonderful views from her Sun room. Within walking distance from the lovely town of Schull. Beds are really comfy. I look forward to Nancy's waffles for breakfast every... More

This was my second time staying at Stanley House and I was charmed again by the spectacular view from the cosy conservatory and Nancy's friendliness and lovely hospitality. Nancy was the perfect host and made me feel completely at ease throughout my stay. Nancy is a mine of information about the local area and upcoming events, and it was always... More

Everything was perfectly. Very nice and clean rooms, great breakfast, beautiful harbour view. Nancy is very nice, kind and helpful. Stanley House is very good situated, easy to find. We never been in better B&B. This is only one B&B we will visit again. We enjoyed everything there. Thank you very much. Andrej & Maria

I came upon this b&b by chance when I got lost near Schull (!) but decided to stay because it was late and it looked so nice. I had a lovely night here and was impressed by the choice available for the breakfast. I stayed in the single room which was ensuite and comfortable - no complaints. Nancy the owner... More

Schull is a quiet place without a main hotel. This b&b is a little bit away from the main street, but very walkable. The reason this b&b gets great reviews is the owner / staff are fantastic. Very nice and welcoming and bend over backwards to make things easier. I forgot her name, but the owner drove us to a... More

However often we stay here, we are always bowled over by the warmth of the welcome and the all-round excellence and professionalism of Nancy's hospitality. Her breakfasts are legendary - and rightly so. The extensive menu has not just the usual fry-ups but several 'healthy' (and some not so healthy!) options, all cooked to perfection.The rooms have every comfort and... More

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
