We had a great stay at this remarkable B & B, our host Nancy was extremely helpful and interesting. Within minutes of arrival she had coffee on and home made cake that was brilliant. The location is perfect, near to town but far enough away to be peaceful together with views of the bay that are picture perfect. The water feature in the garden is just right with the herd of deer in the background, also Tom and Nancy's. Nature comes alive in and around the property with numerous birds diving in and out which is very relaxing to wake to the sound of birdsong and the view of the bay.
Nancy gave us directions to Mt Gabriel which was great because I doubt we would have found the way to the top for stunning views around Roaring Water Bay and Schull.
Breakfast was 5 star, everything in place so making it a visual picture of what a breakfast table should be like. Tea for my wife was spot on as it came with a pot of hot water as she likes weak tea, without having to ask for it. I had the healthy option (full Irish);-) which had the nicest eggs I have had in many a long year, my wife's scrambled egg was cooked to perfection and looked golden, in fact the breakfast was a gold star right there.
We would recommend this little piece of Heaven to anyone visiting Schull and looking for somewhere a bit special to stay.
We left refreshed and whilst normally I don't sleep so good, I certainly slept well there.
We will be back!
