We arrived in Schull about 6.30pm and called at one of the local pubs to try and find a room. Fortunately for us the pub did not have any rooms but directed us to Stanley House which sits on a hill overlooking the stunning Schull bay. We contacted Nancy and she had a room free after a last minute cancellation.... More

This was by far the best B&B we used in Ireland. It is southwest of Cork by about an hour and just outside of West Cork County. The breakfast offered cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice before a full Irish breakfast, which offered a variety of eggs. Everything is locally grown and fresh. Nancy and Tom have made this a very special... More

If there was a 6-star rating for accommodation Stanley House would certainly be 6 stars. Nancy could not do enough for my husband and me. 3 glorious days and the best B&B EVER. The whole house is spotless, as well as being open and warm and friendly. Resulting in the creation of a perfect environment in which to stay. Add... More

My husband and I stayed in Stanley House for 2 nights in June 2014. The first thing I noticed, besides how friendly Nancy was, was how immaculately clean the room was. I've never before stayed in a place where you could smell the washing powder from the bed sheets! Nancy has thought of absolutely everything when it comes to providing... More

I stayed here just for a night but it was terrific. The rooms were flawless including tea and biscuits, big plump pillows, unbelievable sea views. Nancy herself was great. You could tell she genuinely wanted you to have a good time, but without putting pressure on you to do so if that makes sense. Anyway, perfect.

We were impressed by Nancy's friendliness and cooking. We were so happy to see huge plates of fresh ripe fruit to go along with her homemade granola. The ocean view was spectacular. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again. This part of Ireland is beautiful.

Nancy does a wonderful job. Accommodations are impeccable. We took a beautiful 15 minute walk along the water into town for dinner. We had breakfast overlooking the water. Local cheese option for breakfast was great, as was the porridge with Bailey's.

The most comfortable beds, soft pillows, immaculately clean everywhere, beautiful surroundings and the best breakfast!!! Cannot fault the service Nancy gives and the value is unbelievable. I've stayed in hotels twice the price and not experienced the comfort and service that I've had here. I am a very light sleeper and find it difficult to sleep when away from home... More

We stayed at Nancy's B&B for nearly two weeks to discover the treasures of the south cost of Ireland. We could not have had it better than at this house. The breakfast was delicious freshly prepared with local ingrediences. Even if you asked for a food prepared to a special diet- Nancy prepares that for you! The rooms are very... More
