I frequently make the road trip from Dublin to Schull in West Cork and always make a point of stopping at the Innishannon House Hotel. It is only a 3 minute detour off the N71 which passes through the village. The hotel looks out over its gardens to a wide stretch of the river Bandon. It is a very beautiful and peaceful setting to watch bands of ducks floating by. The staff are very welcoming without being intrusive and nothing is too much trouble. They serve food throughout the day and offer very good value. We have never been disappointed. I have seen the rooms which look very comfortable and it would make the perfect destination for a week-end to recharge the batteries. My only regret is that I am always en route to visit relatives or returning home and never have the opportunity to stay for a night.
I have recommended it without hesitation to all my friends who have unanimously thanked me later.
In short it is a perfectly located very well run family hotel that makes you feel welcome whether you are visiting for a cup of tea or staying for a week.
