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...

We stayed with Nancy for 4 nights in September. What can I say that hasn't already been said? Nancy made us feel so welcome in her wonderful home, doing all she possibly could to make our stay a memorable one. Room was private, comfortable and spotless with everything we needed. The breakfast was the best we had on our entire... More

We stayed here in mid September for a night and loved every second. The house is spotless with comfortable room, spectacular views and lovely hostess. Nancy was a welcoming host who provided us with a lift into town for dinner with good recommendations. The breakfast was truly exceptional and set us off fully prepared for the 50 mile cycle ahead.... More

We stayed at Stanley House for three excellent nights in August. We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing break, and Nancy was a lovely host, she could not do enough to help us. The room was immaculate and a perfect size. The house was extremely clean and the gardens were very well maintained. The breakfast was truly exceptional every single day... More

We have just come back from a 3 night break in Schull Co Cork. We were so fortunate to find Stanley House, within walking distance of Schull. Nancy and her husband Tom made us so welcome. The rooms were so comfortable and everywhere was spotless. The breakfast was delicious, variety you would not be offered in a 4 star hotel.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this delightful B&B in Schull run by Nancy and Tom Brosnan, who were most hospitable and helpful. The house has wonderful sea views and is a very enjoyable 15 min walk from the centre of Schull. Rooms were extremely comfortable and clean, breakfasts were delicious. Ample parking and free wifi. Couldn’t have improved on... More
