Absolutely THE BEST place we stayed at in the 3 weeks touring around Ireland. Mike was the perfect host and was literally doing everything. He was working the bar, cooking meals, wow superman! The room we had was super comfy but not huge. The food we had at the bar was delicious. Seafood chowder full of really fresh fish and... More

Trying to escape the crowds of Kinsale, my wife and I were advised to go to Ballycotton. We arrived and found a room here. It was a charming and comfortable room, quiet and relaxing. A short walk from the harbour and great for exploring a much quieter area of the south coast. The owners were really friendly and helpful and... More

Horatiocaine 1.............what is wrong with your taste buds? I do not get the review from the aforementioned reviewer at all and it is not fair, really not fair. A review like that does no favours for a hardworking business that is a family run pub doing food whose owners obviously work so hard to make sure customers are happy. This... More

We had our wedding in Ballycotton in July 2013, and had a meal for 15 people in the Schooner Tavern the night before. Mike, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating. The food is hearty pub grub, huge portions and quite reasonably priced.
