A peaceful and restful place to stay for a few days! I almost hate giving them a glowing review which they so richly deserve, because more and more will learn of this West Cork secret getaway! My friend and I were traveling and stopping by to see friends in the nearby area, so decided to take a room here for... More

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

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
