“A magnificent week”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just back from a blissful week in stunning Dunowen House. Even though it's not our first time there the new owners have beautifully finished off the house. It was the little touches that were laid on for us on our arrival by Kela & Stephen that made it a home away from home and an amazing start to our amazing week in Dunowen House. Thank You.

“Well appointed spacious period home in beautiful peaceful cove in West Cork.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Dunowen House comfortably accommodated our family of 6 and would suit any large group of holiday makers. Lots of large ensuited stylish bedrooms. Spacious living rooms and formal/ informal dining. The grounds are verdant and very relaxing. Several beaches within a 5 or 10 minute walk and the beautiful surrounds of West Cork are easily accessible. A direct connection with the legendary Jimi Hendrix only added to the experience!

“A holiday to remember in a amazing house”

I stayed for a week in Dunowen with my family and two more families. In total we were 6 adults and 6 children. The house was amazing, the pictures on the website don't do it justice.It was very clean and the little touches were amazing, like lots of fresh flowers and fairy cakes left out for us. There was everything we could possibly want and we had lots of space for us all inside and out. The two local beaches were great and a pint and ice-cream in the pub in the village was fun!
Overall it is such an amazing beautiful house and feel very lucky to have stayed there for a week

This was an excellent choice for a family gathering. There is a good garden for the children, close access to lovely beaches and a very warm house which was great for oldest member of the family. The owner was most helpful and the house itself is well-equipped and lives up to its description.

“Beautiful house in picturesque setting - Perfect Hen Weekend!!”

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from our friends hen weekend at Dunowen house and i can't praise it enough! We were a group of 18 girls in our early 30s and it was perfect. The house itself is beautiful and the interior decor is stunning!
It is remote but the local taxi company were on hand at all times to take us into Clonakilty, which is roughly 15 mins drive.
Our hen and the all the girls had the best weekend and were so sad to leave!
Thank you Heather!!
