“Ian & Chris Melbourne Australia”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed 29 & 30/5, at a very nice Irish B & B. The breakfast was excellent & our hosts provided great recommendations on dine out & tourist options. Our room was very clean & tidy, & the dining room & lounge were spotless & decorated with stacks of interesting ornaments & paintings. Would stay again.

We (4) stayed May 3-4 2013 It is a delightful Irish B&B, great hosts, value and good breakfast and coffee. We walked into town both nights - 1k. Enjoyed the treatment, advise and friendliness. It has sun room common area for group. Decorations are unique from the semi-retired Dutch couple.

Room Tip: twin was a bit small

We stayed for three nights here recently and were astounded by the friendly and warm welcome from the owners- a true home from home. The room was extremely comfortable and well equiped, Breakfast was really amazing the extent of which was really quite legendary- a real gut buster!!!!
we especially liked having the facility to make tea /coffee at any time in the kitchen - a very welcome bonus- overall we had a great stay in a really lovely area for an amazingly reasonable price - you couldn't beat it for value or comfort - absolutely first class

A chance stop at the Mill B&B turned into a warm Irish welcome and enjoyable stay. Tosca and her husband greeted my wife and I as friends and not just visitors. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The service was excellent, the food was outstanding and the more we experienced the hospitality of our hosts it was evident why the Mill B&B has enjoyed such a successful business for so many years. The B&B is conveniently located and allowed us to walk to the city center. We were well pleased with our choice to stay at the Mill B&B.

Having travelled from Dublin along the southern coast, memorable places like Courtown where we stayed at a fabulous B&B (Harbour House - Proprietor Margaret) , will live on in our memories. From Courtown through Cahore, Enniscorthy and sleeping in Waterford at Rosewood B&B with Catherine who was also incredibly welcoming, amazing food and surroundings. Really can't go wrong with either of these B&B's. However, this review is about The Mill, Bantry, County Cork. Tosca and Cornelius have created a honey pot for visitors, making one feel totally welcome and sincerely happy to meet you and show you around the town, focus is on warm, friendly assistance in the most inviting and interesting home decorated with artifacts from around the world. This couple deserve the many recommendation they've received from tourism critiques. If you stay anywhere, stay here at The Mill, you'll be missing out if you don't!!!

Room Tip: Book in advance to avoid disappointment, this B&B is understandably popular

We were met by Tosca with a very jubilant hello. We were greeted like old family members coming for a visit and that feeling never left. We stayed in a separate room from the home which was great for privacy. It was very spacious and very neat and tidy. There was a tin of biscuits in the room and coffee/tea available in the room. Not only that, but they had a small kitchen area in the home where you could have more tea and biscuits should you want and a beautiful sun room with games and lots of places to sit and read. Both Tosca and Kees were entertaining and wonderful to talk to! The breakfast was delicious and I hope that the rest of the B&B's we stay in in Ireland are like this! These two made my husband and me want to run our own B&B one day. Prefect!

Room Tip: If it's just a couple, ask for the separate room- very quiet, spacious, and private. Perfect for...
