“Dreamland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

with no doubts the best B&B we have ever been in Ireland!
wonderful location in the middle of nature overlooking the Durrus bay.
The place is clean, well organised and Mike & Julia are so sweet!! They cookes for us an huge plate of fresh caught fish such as lobster, crab, etc...I'm not a big fish fan but it was absolutly FANTASTIC!!!
If only I could I will give more thanfive star.....and by the way we are so happy about our stay that we are going back again in october with my parents....

You would find it hard to get better value than Carbery.
From the moment you arrive you feel welcome.
Julie gave us a pot of tea and homemade brownie, told us to make ourselves at home which we did.
Having had a. Good lunch we had bought tapas in Schull so we picnicked in the sunny front garden.
Following a good sleep we had delicious breakfast, fresh fruit salad, their own duck eggs and smoked haddock with lots of toast brown bread and coffee.
We walked Sheepshead, well worth it and went to Arundels for dinner, taxi home. Great success.
We highly recommend

Where to start? The hospitality, the view, the breakfasts - all quite outstanding.

If you fancy a sailing trip, Mike and the boat owner can take you out for a day or half-day trip.

Arundel's restaurant is nearby - unassuming premises but great fish.

Go there!

Room Tip: Seefinn Suite is situated on the ground floor - so great for people with mobility problems.

We returned yesterday from a weeks stay in Julia and Mike's rental cottage, which is next door to the main house. We brought our little dog Rusty with us. All 3 of us had a great stay, we couldn't fault it. The house is small but has everything. The view from the patio is spectacular, we ate breakfasts and some lunches outside just gazing at it. Our dog had lots of space to run around and explore. She slept in the sittingroom on her own bed.

Mike, Julia and Seamus are very friendly but let you have your own space and we appreciated that. Seamus kindly dried my walking boots when I had left them overnight on the windowsill in the rain! Most of all it was a relaxing, stress free week and we are both recharged.

We hope to return with our little dog soon!

Lovely B&B in the beautiful Sheep's Head Peninsula. All rooms have sea views. Breakfast is varied and delicious. The owners Mike & Julia were welcoming and gave lots of advice on the local area. The B&B is pet friendly so you can bring your dog. Rooms are comfortable - much nicer and better value than a hotel. Durrus is a lovely town - just a few minutes drive away.

If you like warm welcomes,beautiful views,excellent food(mostly homemade or home grown) ,comfortable beds , nature,animals and you are visiting West Cork and in particular The Sheeps Head Peninsula,then i cannot recommend this guest house high enough. Its location is ideal for touring West Cork and the owners are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.Bantry is the nearest town and this caters for all needs ,the local village Durrus has ,pubs restaurants and a Post Office and if you like walking ,the Sheeps Head Way is an award winning walk,which i highly recommend.
