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

The B&B was excellent. Nancy and her husband were very kind and friendly. Breakfast was gorgeous. The location is very nice, You need a car to go to the city centre, but the landscape from your room window is amazing! Higly recommended address!

Two nights spent in Nancy's house were top notch. Comfy beds in a spotless room. Nancy and co serve up a wonderful breakfast with such a variety. Had the full Irish the first morning,yum. The fruit salad the following morning had more variety than my 5 star hotel stays. Nancy is on hand for advice on your day trips etc.... More

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.
