“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We sayed here for a few nights last year. What a little gem. Mike and Julia are very friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble. The breakfasts are fantastic. We had a very comfortable ground floor room with its own little patio outside, which was ideal for the dog. They love animals and have a variety of ducks, chickens, goats etc. The surrounding area is lovely with lots of good walks. There is a delightful pub, the Arundel Arms at Akahista just a short drive away, which serves delicious food and allowed our dog in the bar.

Room Tip: The ground floor bedroom is quite self contained with its own patio.

having just come back from a short break visiting a friend, we stayed for 3 nights at Carbery cottage, we had the best time, Mike and Julia were super hosts, nothing was to much trouble, we were out at 5.30 am on the first day, both Julia and Mike said they would do a cooked breakfast for us !!! {far to early to eat for me !} lovely clean rooms, great food, freedom to walk around the grounds amongst the, ponies, chickens ducks ect, a visit to Ireland is not complete without a stay at Carbery cottage ! loved it !

The Sheepshead Peninsula has to be one of the most precious parts of Ireland.....and Mike and
Julia are the best hosts imaginable.....providing whatever you need - helpful hints of places to
eat or hear music, or find art....or wonderful breakfasts.....or just peace and quiet. All the critters
that live there were a delight and they are all kept separate from the Guest Lodge for those
who aren't interested. Traveled out to Sea on a 47' sailboat for a day and watched the dolphins
play with us. Also, there is a Tibetan Buddhist retreat center on the tip of the Beara Peninsula
just North of Mike and Julia's peninsula for those that might be interested. Absolutely blissful
time away!!

I found it difficult and time-consuming to find pet-friendly places to stay in, such as B&Bs, guest houses, and hotels, for just a night or two, (rather than say a week's rental) . Fortunately we were lucky to have stumbled upon Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge near Durrus in West Cork. Beautiful location, friendly proprietors and wonderful breakfasts. They love animals and the atmosphere is completely relaxing. They have a choice of B&B or a cottage adjoining the main building. Highly recommend.

How can I start? Mike and Julia are like the friends you have never met. The welcome we got from them was so warm. They spoilt us with the one amazing breakfast after the other and whenever they could helped us out. They e.g. booked us on a whale watching-trip, and we just had to drive there and enjoy the trip. They are also true insiders, knowing all the interesting places on the peninsula. Rooms were very clean, and with all the animals around the house, this B&B felt a little like a Garden of Eden. I truly enjoyed it.

Carbery Cottage is a lovely place to stay. Mike and Julia are very welcoming hosts and the house is in a great location. Room and bathroom were very nice and the breakfasts were excellent. It was lovely that our dog was made welcome too.
