If I do, you will just go there and then there won't be a free room for me and that would be an utter disaster ;-))
But, I'm in good mood so maybe I'll tell you just a little bit about my favourite accommodation on the Sheeps Head Pen.
So, in July I was anxious to see the four new rooms that BVH had added to their accommodation in the gorgeous village of Kilcrohane on the Sheeps head Peninsula.
I have stayed in the B&B a few times and always in the main house which has four guest bedrooms. This time I was honoured to stay in room 1 of their new accommodation block. There are four additional rooms there, just about 15 metres from the main house on their own property. A fifth room is to be added and this will have self catering option. Can't wait to see and hopefully use that.
Anyway the new rooms include 2 double rooms and 2 twin rooms. We had a double which overlooks the expansive garden and of course in the distance - Dunmanus Bay.
The rooms are very comfortable with a nice double bed, loads of wardrobe space, tea/coffee making facilities and a fine flat screen TV. The bathroom with large wheelchair accessible shower is spacious and the Donegans provide towels and toiletries. The walls have been stuffed so well with insulation to explosion point, which guarantees a lovely quiet and peaceful sleep
The Donegans still provide evening meals and of course their 'signature' breakfast. Yes the one fit for a King, the one that fills you up for the day and beyond, the one that is served to your table, none of your old 'fighting your way to the buffet table' at BVH, the one that is cooked to order. Yes, that one.
The other thing that the Donegans continue to maintain is their personal service and BIG BIG genuine Irish welcome. It's such a treat in these days of impersonal 'Holiday INNish' type customer service to really feel welcome and appreciated, and this is what Donegans do at BVH.
Location wise, Kilcrohane village is a wonderful location, it's more a hamlet than a village really and it only has a couple of shops, two pubs, a church and Bridgeview House, but what else would you need when your location is as beautiful as Sheeps Head Peninsula.
All of the aforementioned are but a 2 minute walk from BVH. Perfect.
Oh, and if you do decide to stay longer, they have a Primary School and not too far away an excellent playground.
I hope you enjoy your stay there as much as I did.
