Stayed for only a few hours prior to a mizen to Malin cycle challenge. Perfect preparation. These guys have it down to an art, perfect customer service and hospitality! Beautiful breakfast was provided despite our very early start. Very accommodating!

Stayed here just one night on recent visit to Mizen Head Lighthouse. Lovely quiet B&B just off the beaten track. Not modern by any means, but very comfy, good size room, good shower, and fresh tasty breakfast. Dinner in Restaurant was delicious, fresh seafood, very good wine selection. An out of the way place, but well worth a visit.

Goleen was our stop to visit Mizen head. The room was spacious and clean and the staff were very friendly. The bathroom was small, but spotlessly clean. We bought a bottle of wine from the restaurant downstairs to have in our room before visiting the pubs in the nearby town. The food was fantastic, with a view of the bay.... More

An amazing B&B with some absolutely amazing food. You would not find this quality of food in some major cities - hats off to the owners and chefs for the efforts they put in. The staff have been very helpful with our toddler, and have made the experience much more enjoyable. If you come here, just remember that these are... More
