“Utterly charming”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

A very warm welcome to Nancy's cosy home. Breakfast was to die for, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, what a great place to stay! Particularly lovely to look out over the garden and watch the local wildlife with such an amazing view!

Nancy absolutely spoiled us while we stayed at the Stanley House! We were traveling for 23 days and this was our favorite place to stay! Great food, comfortable rooms, great conversation, terrific location and we can't wait to return!

We are regulars here - our 5th visit in five years - and Nancy always welcomes us as one of the family - with tea and home-made cake. But that's the thing. She welcomes everyone in the same way! She encapsulates everything that is special about Irish hospitality. For newcomers she is also a mine of information about the local area. Her breakfasts are legendary, and will last you all day, but if you are counting the calories, she offers several healthy options. Fancy a selection of fresh fruit or local cheese? No problem for Nancy. The rooms are immaculate, and never seem to age - in other words, even in this period of austerity, money is spent making everything look as good as new. And, of course those wonderful views will always be there. This is an idyllic part of the country. Quite simply, Stanley House is a gem. It is one of our favourite places to stay in the whole world - and, as you can see, we've been around a bit!

Room Tip: Go for a sea-facing room if you can.

All the praises aren't enough - here is the next!!
My second time with Nancy and Tom and again a wonderful stay at Stanley House.
"Heaven on Earth"," A home from home", "Best B&B ever", that's all to write about. But you have to come and see. If you want to share a few days to relax, to dream, to "refill" or/and to explore the beautifull Mizen Head Penn - you have to come here. But hurry up, most of the time it's fully booked - of course!!!
See you next time

Nancy, the proprietor of this wonderful guest house makes it very difficult to return to reality! From her wonderfully home made breakfasts, to her spotless rooms and all accommodating personality, this has been by far the best away stay I have had. I highly recommend this very homey guest house which over looks the bay and the handsome red deer in the front garden.

This is a beautiful guest house, run by a lovely lady who really enjoys making people feel welcome. Nancy was so helpful, booking a restaurant for us on Good Friday, providing lovely pots of tea in china cups and suggesting nice walks. A lovely, comfortable, homely sitting room for the evening. One of the most comfortable nights sleep we have ever had and what a view from the bedroom! With that wonderful breakfast we didn't need lunch either. Everything was spotless and the attention to detail really shows. I hope we have the opportunity to go back again at some time and hope Nancy is there for many years to come. Thank you very much.

I highly recommend this B&B: I stayed for three nights at the beginning of April and enjoyed it thoroughly. I was staying as a solo traveller, visiting my sister and her family who live nearby, but seeking some peace and quiet away from the children! This place ticked all of the boxes, with a very friendly and welcoming host, a very comfortable, clean and cosy room, and great breakfasts. The breakfast was a real strong point with a choice between multilpe options -- the egg/smoked salmon combo and the waffles are recommended.

One other thing is the view -- a really fantastic panorama looking down across the bay in Schull. A great backdrop for a cup of coffee and a read.

All in all a very enjoyable stay.
