We have spend a full week with 3 kids and enjoyed every single minute. The rooms were lovely and had a breath-taking view on the ocean. Breakfast was a nice choice of different dishes and a refreshing change to today's buffets. Permanent access to tennis court and the farm around the corner with many calves and 2 baby kiddens was...

Our family just returned from an extended trip in Ireland. This was one of our favorite spots on the trip. As you drive in you are greeted by a fabulous water view with emerald green mountains in the background. Cows graze in the meadow below. This is a working farm with all the sites, smells and sounds. The B&B is... More

Of all the places we stayed in Ireland, this was my 16 year old sons favorite place. Modestly furnished & old timey, you definitely get a feeling that you are at Grandma & Grampa's authentic Irish no-nonsense house. The real jewels are the proprietors, Johnny & Dympna. Very lovely folks. Dymphna even sells hand crocheted hats in the dining room.... More

When I was told it was ok to go out exploring by the water, I took full advantage of it. My brother and I walked down to the water and walked all along the rocks and took tons of pictures. It was like a private area to admire the water! The rooms in the B&B were also very quaint, and... More

Just outside the hustle of Bantry is a quiet b&b with great views. Mrs. Crowley is a lovely host, the rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good, the property is well maintained. The sitting room has a lovely view of the bay I sat there having wine with a new friend I met there. We were able to peek in on... More

I enjoyed my 5-day stay at Dromcloc House immensely. My room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were excellent and, best of all, the gracious proprietors Dympna and Johnny did everything they could to make my stay an enjoyable one. This lovely farmhouse/B&B makes an ideal starting point for exploring the beautiful Sheepshead Peninsula.

This B&B is almost at the furthest point of the tip of Southern Ireland. You can literally see the outline of the island! The drive is a bit treacherous and you are sort of going up a mountain and down into a valley, but take your time and mind the curves. It's worth it! Also, the BEST seafood I've ever... More

What a beautiful surprise this B&B was! This place turned out to be everything we ever imagined Ireland (west coast) should be. A farm still functioning, converted into a B&B, maintaining all the romantic, nostalgic features. We had an incredible view of Bantry Bay from our huge bedroom window and some excellent trails right from the B&B door. The hosts... More

Dympna and Johnny get a lot of good comments and rightly so. A stunning location overlooking Bantry Bay on the one side and hills on the other and just 5 minutes from Bantry, this is a great place to place for looking round the area (we did Sheep's Head). As another reviewer said 'Irish hospitality at its best.'

Fabulous location, warm hosts, graceful accommodations: Dromcloc House was a delightul base for a few days' exploration of West Cork. The Crowleys are a wealth of insight into the county and the superb Sheepshead Peninsula. We'd love to return for a longer visit.
