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

The main thing my father could eat the... More

We came to Goleen on the bikes, with my family. There was no problem with storing our bikes, safe and dry. The family bedroom we got was spacious, clean and cosy with the balcony overlooking the cove. Pity, the water in the cove was very shallow that day, still we have some great shots of our daughter standing with her... More

We stayed in the family room, it was so clean and warm. The views were fantastic. The food was lovely but the vegetables did need to be cooked properly as they were still quite raw. Apart from that the rest of the meal was superb, the staff were very efficient and we had a lovely nights stay. The breakfast was... More

Was here last weekend for 2 nights with 3 more couples had a great weekend!! Rooms were fabulous and spotlessly clean. The location itself was fab and with balconies with most rooms was lovely to sit outside and soak up the sun. We went for the offer for 3-Course Meal in the restaurant and the food was amazing. They were... More

This was a wonderful B&B! It is only rated as a 4-star but should really be 5-star. The staff was so nice from the minute we came in to the minute we left. Our room was very spacious and clean. We had a large balcony that overlooked the cove (it IS tidal so there is not always water there). It... More

We went down to Heron's Cove for our honeymoon on the recommendation of my father. The guest house overlooks a quiet cove that is full of fish and has many wader birds, including heron. The food was really excellent and not expensive given the quality. After all the hectic activity associated with our wedding, it was a perfect place to... More

We stayed only one night. Enjoyed the views around the area and the traditional Irish breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable and worth the price. A long drive to the southern most point of Ireland on narrow roads brought us to this location.

Just a short review as I can add little to the title of the review. Large spotless bedroom, balcony with view over the quaint harbour, delicious evening meal with fresh local produce. Breakfast the same. Friendly management and staff. In short, no negatives, only positives.
