Stayed in the Herons Cove for one night. We had a wonderful stay in your hotel. The rooms were spotless and the dinner was very good too. The breakfast was also excellent. We will visit it again in the near future.

Overlooking a small cove of genuine tranquility is this guest house/small hotel of real quality. Impeccably run, staffed with warm efficiency, offering comfortable rooms overlooking the cove, and with an excellent restaurant serving supper as well as breakfast. It has a loyal clientele who keep coming back, and after one visit we could understand why.

Bathroom although small had a walk in shower. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Although not "posh" it had everything to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. All the staff... More

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.
