My sister and I (ages 82 and 76) have ancestors from the Schull area in West Cork, Ireland. Two years ago we traveled to this beautiful area for the first time. And we happened upon the moderately priced (or inexpensive) Stanley House B & B. We stayed there one night and were eager to come back again.
This year we reserved six nights and found the B & B to be as quiet, immaculate, and stress relieving as before. With a sizable breakfast menu my own favorite has become scrambled eggs with smoked salmon! The view from the B & B's sun room is spectacular and includes the harbor and its hillsides, a salboat fleet, perennial flower gardens, deer, peninsulas, and a cemetery with remains of an old church.
So relaxing! I can't remember having a better night's sleep! And Proprietess Nancy Brosnan is so accommodating: "Need an early breakfast? No problem. Need a ride to a restaurant? No problem."
You may wonder if I'm paid by or receive a discount from Nancy. The answer is "no," I simply want to share with other folks the opportunity for a relaxing holiday at my favorite B & B anywhere!
