I highly recommend staying at this first class B&B in Schull. The rooms are spotless and beds are comfortable, the bathroom is immaculate. Breakfast is simply excellent, it was a real pleasure to stay here. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and made myself, Mom and Dad very welcome with tea and cake on arrival too. Stanley House is very professionally...

We've just arrived home after a fantastic overnight stay at Stanley House. Our room was immaculately clean (as was the whole house!!) and the garden and the view was just lovely. The breakfast this morning was delicious!!! Nancy also went out of her way to ensure that my daughter was happy and made a special effort to get her some...

What can one say: The view, the food, the gracious hosts Nancy and Tom. All blended together to create the most enjoyable visit. Stayed four nights and enjoyed each one. All rooms en-suite. Nancy keeps her rooms very clean and neat. The house is not to far from Schull and a good walk after visiting Hacketts or P.J Newmans for...

My daughter, husband and myself arrived at Nancy's on Saturday, April 7th, quite battered and shattered, after an exhausting journey from Toronto. Our trip was fraught with interruptions and unexpected delays.When we were finally able to call from Cork Airport to advise Nancy of our impending, but late arrival, her calm, reassuring and welcoming voice on the other end of...

A very warm welcome to Nancy's cosy home. Breakfast was to die for, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, what a great place to stay! Particularly lovely to look out over the garden and watch the local wildlife with such an amazing view!

Nancy absolutely spoiled us while we stayed at the Stanley House! We were traveling for 23 days and this was our favorite place to stay! Great food, comfortable rooms, great conversation, terrific location and we can't wait to return!

We are regulars here - our 5th visit in five years - and Nancy always welcomes us as one of the family - with tea and home-made cake. But that's the thing. She welcomes everyone in the same way! She encapsulates everything that is special about Irish hospitality. For newcomers she is also a mine of information about the local...

Nancy, the proprietor of this wonderful guest house makes it very difficult to return to reality! From her wonderfully home made breakfasts, to her spotless rooms and all accommodating personality, this has been by far the best away stay I have had. I highly recommend this very homey guest house which over looks the bay and the handsome red deer...

This is a beautiful guest house, run by a lovely lady who really enjoys making people feel welcome. Nancy was so helpful, booking a restaurant for us on Good Friday, providing lovely pots of tea in china cups and suggesting nice walks. A lovely, comfortable, homely sitting room for the evening. One of the most comfortable nights sleep we have...
