First of all I have stayed here before and enjoyed the experience but just to warn you it is not glamouress. Who wants fluff and bother in the beautiful wilds of west Cork anyways? However it is imbued with west Cork hospitality and graciousness that cannot be bought in a Hilton, (in which I must stay frequently). It is wonderful to see the majority of reviews on this site agree. The front desk staff especially Adele Margaret and Karen are fantastic and very helpful in finding your way around or suggesting sites to see. Ann Marie is a godsend for sorting you out for things needed and always very happy to see you. It is wonderful to be remembered and appreciated and this little gem is the one to do it! A
special shout out to Lukas in the pub as he's your man for a well pulled pint. The food is wonderful and locally sourced for that extra lovely touch of authenticity. I and my family shall return. Again and again.
