“Super Skibbereen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Our 2 night stay at the Bridge House was excellent thanks to Mona's fantastic hospitality in her theatrical home. On arrival to the Bridge House, you never stop staring at every nook and cranny as Mona has tastefully decorated every inch of space in a creative and quirky manner which keeps you smiling. The bedrooms are all decorated artistically and beautifully with so many lovely touches.

The breakfast leaves you nicely full & is a healthy, hearty one and its style varies each morning.
Mona is at hand and always up for chat and advice on local attractions all throughout your stay. She is a delight, just like her home! Thank you,Mona, for such a wonderful stay. It's like no other!

An impromptu visit to Kerry, no accommodation booked, a late call to Mona and thank goodness a room was available... and what a room! What a house, what a host! The entire experience was just fantastic. Two exhausted travellers fell in the door at 11pm to find a surprise at every turn, quirky, boho chic everywhere... Into their room at 11pm, to the most comfortable bed, strewn with rose petals, soft lighting and pillows everywhere. Bliss! Breakfast the next morning was just a delight and delicious! Mona certainly knows how to look after her guests! I would heartily recommend that no matter where on the N71 your journey is taking you, take the turn off for Skibereen and stay the night at the Bridge House, it's worth it!

It makes such a difference when you find a great place to stay and that's exactly what we found in Bridge House. Mona has created a wonderfully quirky home and she is the perfect welcoming hostess. Don't miss it if you are in the area. The breakfasts are to die for. Skibbereen itself is lovely and has plenty nice places to eat and drink.

We found this place late on a wet afternoon but hadn't booked and there was no-one home when we knocked on the door. Whilst we were sitting in the car deciding what to do, Mona came flying down the road on her bike, skirts flying in the breeze. She welcomed us in and gave us tea and cake. The inside has to be seen to be believed. It is crammed with Victoriana; knick knacks, books, dummies in vintage clothes and even a stuffed animal in the bathroom! Although it is full to the brim, it is very clean and well cared for. The beds were extremely comfortable and breakfast was a feast. Highly recommended if you want a change from the generic, corporate style.

I absolutely LOVED this place! It's so unusual that it will have to be seen to be believed. The attention to detail from the decor to all the little touches in the bedrooms and even to the dining room is amazing. I stayed with my Fiance here, and it was so lovely and romantic aswell as the talking point of our whole trip!
Mona who owns the place is one of the most genuine nice people you could meet, she went out of her way to get me a card from the local hairdressers and gave me loads of tips about my upcoming wedding down there. Her breakfast was fab , with so much thought gone into the presentation and also the ingredients ( also filled me for the day nearly haha) The bed was so comfy - best nights sleep ever!
I am always a little dubious when staying in B&Bs rather than hotels as sometimes you don't feel as if you can come and go as you please , but defo not the feeling here, I felt totally at home:)
I'll be staying here next time I visit West Cork for sure.

This place we found completely by accident, the woman who ran it (who's name escapes me now) was so incredible. I was in Skibbereen looking for areas where my family originated from and she personally contacted her friend who ran the historical center and connected us! Our room was on the top floor (no elevator) and it was a comfortable double bed with a private bathroom we slept great. In the morning we were served the most delicious breakfast which started with ripe fruit and followed with eggs toast bacon and all the fixings! Coffee and Orange juice!
This location is very central its right in the heart Skibbereen, walking distance to everything, shops, great pubs, night life etc, there is also free parking on the street! I highly recommend this place for any traveler!

I just came for a couple of nights to see the islands of west cork and i staid longer then i expected. Every day is a different day; there is so much going on in this house, it changes everyday. This house has a character and the lovely Lady `Mona` who makes it special.
Very lovely place, welcoming and unusual.
You have to see it yourself.
