Nancy's BnB was wonderful. We felt at home during our entire stay. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. She cooked the most delicious breakfast in the morning. She gave us advice about where to find traditional music and helped us with transportation to the neighboring town, Ballydehob. Beautiful view and a beautiful house. Nancy was great!

Lovely bed and breakfast in Schull, breathtaking view and beautiful rooms (electrick blankets and wi-fi available). Nancy is a very kind and helpful landlady who welcomed us with tea and cake. The breakfast was very good with different options available. Top class accomodation.

We happened upon this B&B by chance. We knocked on the door of a B&B down the road and the owner very generously rang around to help us. Our lucky day! Nancy Brosnan (is she related to Pierce?)runs a first class B&B, arguably, after staying in many, the best in Ireland. Nancy's greeting is warm and friendly. There is a... More

The first time I stayed in this wonderful little place in one of the (IMHO) most beautiful areas in 2012, I thought that it was one of the best B&B I ever stayed in. After having returned this year, I am now convinced that it is indeed the best! The rooms are well furnished and spotlessly clean, the surroundings breathtakingly... More

I stayed at Stanley House for five nights from September 13-18, 2013. I had such a wonderful experience that I could talk for hours. I came to West Cork to bike, and Nancy was very helpful in providing me with cycle routes. The view from the house was beautiful. The house was very clean. The breakfast was just awesome. I... More

We spent our honeymoon touring Kerry and West Cork and stepped into Schull "by accident". Due to a sailing event most of the B&B's in the area were taken, but luckily Nancy had a lovely twin room available. Our room overlooked Schull Harbour, it was very spacious for the two of us and we especially loved the bathroom with the... More

We had a lovely stay in Schull and much of that was down to the warm, unassuming Stanley House. Room was very pleasant, functional and well priced. Views spectacular (we were lucky with the weather) and the Main Street with its amenities are a short walk away. Breakfast was prompt and fulfilled our requests and expectations and we'd have no...

We stayed in Nancy's place for 3 nights and that was amazing. Nancy is very nice, very welcoming person. She really likes what she does and you can see it from everything in this beautiful B&B. If you looking for best accommodation in Schull, then Stanley House is your choice. Thank you, Nancy, for your great welcoming! We wish peace... More

Three of us stayed here for a night. It was beautiful. The house is very comfortable, and the food excellent. Nancy was very helpful, sorted out our card game! A sun room looks over the sea, and there is also another sitting room. We were sorry to only have one night. We will definitely return.

If only I could have lengthened our trip, I would have spent more days at Nancy's wonderful B&B. The house and rooms were spotlessly clean. The view of the gardens, deer and bay in the back were so beautiful and a welcome sight each morning. The house itself was quiet plus a water feature was running outside which added to... More
