“Boutique rooms, views and breakfast ! Just stay in this little gem Gallan Mor !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed in Gallan Mor for one night and I wish it was more. Starting with a warm welcome from Lorna we were given a tour of the house (which is very stylish and beautiful) with little pieces of antique furniture to give the cottage feel. Our North room was downstairs, beautifully decorated with large wet room and 4 poster bed. + breakfast in Gallan Mor is an experience itself with beautiful views .. many thanks Noel & Lorna , you are truly great hosts.

In brief: This little gem in a wonderful location , with truly amazing views and enough privacy to feel like a hotel.Stay in Gallan Mor and eat in Blairscove and you are going to have an amazing holiday ;-)

See oyu again,
Katrina & Breon

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, but sea view rooms are particularly nice if you are going to be spending so...

I stay in the Durrus area regularly, and Gallan Mor has one of the warmest welcomes you could wish for. Despite being a new business, they behave like old hands. My room was small but well appointed and very comfortable. I had a bit of difficulty in finding the place in the dark and rain, but one quick phone call sorted it out quickly! They are so friendly, with a cup of tea and home made biscuits to welcome you. On the second night, fellow guests were already back for their second stay! I didn't take full advantage of the excellent breakfast on offer, as I was doing a cookery course, but I advise you to fill your boots! Not cheap, but well worth the money. I will be staying again.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, tell them beforehand. The bed in my room was very high off the ground...

Just returned from two days at this outstanding Bed & Breakfast. Lorna & Noel are welcome hosts, they think of everything and have created something special in this part of Ireland. Our room was comfortable & everything was well presented. Our breakfast was freshly prepared, with locally sourced produce and plentiful. We certainly did try "Dutch Baby" with Lorna's new twist of serving it with raspberries, it is a must! We cannot say enough about the location, views and peace & quiet apart from that we will return!

Room Tip: All rooms are of a very high standard.

We stayed in Gallan Mor for one night and wish it could have been for a month.
Noel and Lorna are great hosts and in Gallan Mor have created something far more than just a place to stay. Nothing is spared in terms of quality and attention to detail with the real high points being the peace and quiet, the views of Dunmanus Bay, the bed (!) and Lorna's cooking. She even specially baked gluten free bread for us which was delicious.

Everything was simply outstanding. We will be back.

What can one say that hasn't already been said. Gallan Mor & its hosts, Lorna & Noel, lived up to & surpassed our expections. My husband & I spent last weekend along with 6 other walkers at Gallan Mor. Only for one of our more determined & committed walker's we would still be at the breakfast table, relishing the delights which Gallan Mor have become renowned for. Homemade yoghourt, colis, breads, jams & one can't but mention the Dutch Pancake made a memorable culinery experience.
Lorna & Noel couldn't have been more flexible & accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.
Looking forward to, a return visit, for hopefully a longer stay.
Tony & Gemma Larkin.

Noel and Lorna were so kind to us..looking after our every need. The Dutch Baby on the breakfast menu was a special treat! Our room looked out over the bay... the sunrise was spectacular...lovely location...restful and invigorating.

Room Tip: All rooms have a lovely view but the South Room is particularly lovely in the morning

Stayed at Gallen Mor on our first night in Ireland. Had a warm relaxed welcome, beautiful room 5* quality furnishings, bed etc. Noel and Lorna were relaxed and welcoming. Loved our stay, will be back for a longer stay in the future and have our eyes on the beautiful self catering cottage they also rent out. Lovely spot in Ireland with gorgeous views.

Room Tip: Front of house for beautiful sea views, East Room recommended.
