“A feast for the eyes”
Reviewed August 16, 2010

As soon as you walk through the door of this unique B&B you are bombarded by colour, texture, fragrances that waft around the rooms and endless items that will spark off your curiosity. It is described as a Victorian-style guesthouse but in fact the decor is totally eclectic. The room I stayed in had Indian puppets on the wall and Elvis memorabilia around the room, Victorian style wallpaper on the walls and 50s style satin dressing gowns hanging on the back of the door. It would probably take longer to explore all the rooms in this gorgeous house than the whole of Skibbereen!
Mona Best is an extremely welcoming hostess and very kindly offered me her own bicycle - a great way to get around and see the stunning west Cork coastline of Baltimore and the lazy harbour village of Casteltownshend. Well worth the stop over in Skibb!

The Bridge House B&B is easily found in the centre of Skibbereen. It has been described as 'Victorian Accommodation' and has been named winner of 'the most unusual B&B in Ireland' award from RTE. This charming house lives up to its reputation. It is colourful, magical and unexpected in so many ways, reflecting the personality of its owner, Mona Best, a warm-hearted free-thinker and a wonderful cook. Breakfast is an experience in itself. Each bedroom has its own personality and style; guests are tempted to ask for a guided tour.
An unforgettable experience, highly recommended!
