Nancy is an incredible host; the view spectacular; the rooms lovely; the breakfast the best in all of Ireland--especially the brown bread! We traveled with grandparents and children and after 10 days and 8 B&Bs, all 7 of us claimed "Stanley House" and Schull as our very favorite. Gorgeous walks through ruins and along the shore; great pub in town,... More

We arrived late afternoon to be warmly greeted with a cup of tea and homemade cake in the conservatory overlooking the inlet. Both our rooms were very clean, well presented and coordinated. Showers were easy to use and powered, also a heater in bathroom. Lots of clean towels, bath mat and anti-slip mat for the shower. Hairdryers, heating and hot... More

Stanley House could not fail to please. This delightful accommodation is situated a short walk from the village of Schull. The views from the house are second to none, views of the sea with the little yachts sailing in and out of the bay, views of the islands, not to mind watching the deer stalking around in the fields just...

My wife and I stayed at Stanley House for 4 nights May 22-26, 2010. It is a wonderful place run by exceptionally nice people. We stayed in Quarry House which is a 2 bedroom house across from the main B&B. Quarry House was extremely comfortable, clean, well decorated and furnished. It was very private and quiet and had a washing... More

Very comfortable B&B with gracious and friendly hostess. Lovely view of Schull Harbor and the town is easy walking distance. Great base for exploring surrounding area. Breakfast was very good and ample. First floor, and easily accessible, room had great view of harbor. Expansive garden was exceptionally lovely and cared for. Flowers everywhere around house.

I like everything about Stanley House, the position, the views, the lovely gardens to sit out in. The bedroom was a good size as was the bathroom, there was a TV and tea and coffe making facilities. The presentation of the room was excellent. The guest lounge was very comfortable with lovely views. On arrival there was tea and cakes... More

Every single detail is perfect in this B&B. The view, the bedrooms, the breakfast (we could hardly finish it), the location, the garden, and of course our host! We were welcomed with a cup of tea/coffee & a piece of cake after our long trip, which we took from the conservatory, looking out at the Bay. I would highly recommend... More

We just returned from our fourth trip to Ireland. This trip took us to Schull to and we chose to stay at Stanely House primarily based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews accurately tell the whole story. Nancy Brosnan runs what must be one of the best managed, warmest B&B’s in the country. Besides the typical high level... More
