“Beautiful House, nice breakfast and kind people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

I stayed here while working in Bandon briefly. I thought the room was beautiful and the entire house itself was very impressive. The breakfast was lovely. I got greeted by a lovely dog who was very friendly. That may be the only thing that might put one or two people off but I definitely think it added to the charm of the place. Would definitely go back.

As a business traveller I tend to go for the Hotel Chains as you know what to expect. So it was a pleasure to find that Kilbrogan House gave me all the things I expect to find in a Chain Hotel, TV, Tea making facilities, En Suite Bathroom etc but add old world charm terifffic hospatility and truly wonderful breakfast and this was way beyond anything a Chain Hotel could possibly hope to offer.

I have stayed here regularly for several months and it is a joy. Catherine and David are charming and friendly. They are very welcoming from the moment you phone or email. They respond promptly and efficiently. Kilbrogan House is a short 5 minute walk into the town of Bandon and so is perfectly located.
The rooms in the main house are all very comfortable with great beds and sumptuous linen. All is clean and a good night's sleep is guaranteed.
The breakfasts are great, a good choice and well presented by David.
There are also some self-catering units at the back of the main house if you want a little more independence and the chance to cook for yourself. Why miss the breakfasts though!
You will not be disappointed to book Kilbrogan House.

Took my mum to stay here last weekend , had seen reviews on trip advisor and boy it didn't disappoint. A lovely resorted Georgian house with lovely views of the garden and old worldly rooms.. Catherine and her husband were utterly charming , very welcoming . Loved the individuality of the rooms and the lovely white bed linen.. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection with fresh homemade brown bread .. WIll definitely be staying here again some time soon I hope..

This house is in town but benefits from the peace and quiet of a large and beautifully kept walled garden. Bedrooms and the several lounges are all first class. Catherine is a wonderful hostess with information on where to eat, where to go and what to do, always at her finger tips. David's breakfasts, cooked to order, are delicious.

Kilbrogan House is an elegant old Irish Georgian house, tastefully converted into a B&B. The bed was, quite simply, the most comfortable that I've ever slept on (I wish I'd asked who the manufacturer was). The rooms are clean and very comfortable; the breakfast was excellent. The owners are a brother and sister team (plus their dog...) I have no complaints whatsoever; I would love to go back (this time with my wife).

Stayed just one night in this rather ecclectic Georgian house run by a laid back pairing of brother and sister. I thought it a rather wonderful, old fashioned hotch potch house with books, art and painting everywhere. We stayed in the biggest most comfortable bed ever in the Inchigeelagh room and were treated as friends rather than guests. It doesn't have shiney new bathrooms or smart features but retains its historical charm which was captivating. Beautiful gardens, great location for town and value for money. A lovely stay, thank you.

  • Liked — The bed!
  • Disliked — Bathroom was a little tired.
