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

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
