It was by far not the best B&B. Preferrably take one of the family run houses. But if you plan to drive the Beara Peninsula Glengarriff is the perfect starting point. The place itself is good enough for one night. Nothing special, but nonetheless quite cheap. You get a bed, a shower and a breakfast. Don't expect too much, so... More

Booked the Perrin inn for one night....disaster....the carpet in the entrance to 'cottage' was very dirty....as was the carpet in the bedrooms. The shower was filthy couldn't use it. Dead insects on window sills....hairs were in shower on doors and floors. I made a video I just couldn't believe my eyes. Disgusting!!!!

Just spent a night at The Perrin Inn, formerly the Cottage Bar. To say it was disgusting is an understatement. My friend and I were sickened to the core. The first thing that hit us was the dank stale smell of smoke then the filthy worn carpets with stains that made your stomach churn. Our bedroom carpet was bleak, dead... More

All going for this place is the location, even though competitively priced, the standard of room was poor, the beds and bed linen haven't been upgraded in many years, the rooms and bathrooms were clean though. What was most surprising was the service of breakfast the following morning, it was like it was their 1st day ever serving breakfast, forgetting... More

The staff could not have been more helpful to us . The rooms are basic but adequate. Tea making facilities can be ordered if needed to avoid clutter. They are made up of 4 rooms in each of a number of cottages. The breakfast was excellent and the bar was very reasonably priced. It is centrally located and an ideal... More

I stayed in Aug 2013. The bar was full of big tables and chairs like you would see in a club house, the bar is where everyone had their meals, service was ok. Our room was so small, it was like a box room, no wardrobe to hang your clothes. The bed was so uncomfortable i never slept a wink,... More

stayed there in 2 rooms (2 adults, 2 kids) in early August 2013. It was a cheaper B&B compared to other stays we had during our trip. The people there were friendly and kind. The rooms clearly need refurbishment, especially the beds. Did not sleep very well. It could have been cleaner, our room smelled from smoking too, but bedsheets... More

Much has been written about this B&B and I will aim to be as objective as possible. I visited with a group of friends in May 2012 and this involved sharing one of the cottages with my party. I therefore can't comment too much on soundproofing as we had all supped a few pints in the evening. However the walls... More

We agree with 'BLING999' - This B&B would have the worst beds ever. Not only did every spring stick into every part of your body they had plastic on the mattress that crinkled every time you moved. My husband was in pain for 2 days afterwards. The pub wasn't as bad - pub grub for dinner and usual irish breakfast.... More
