Travelling on our way to Killarny we found this wonderful place to stay over night. We were sorry we couldnt stay another night or two! This guest house is just outside the centre of Schull and overlooks the harbour. It has the most spectacular views from inside and out. The conservatory overlooks the very pretty garden, across to the deer and onto the bay.
We were welcomed by the owner Nancy who met us with a cup of tea and a slice of cake. The guesthouse was absolutely spotless and the bedrooms were well equipped and again, had beautiful views.
Nancy was able to direct us to a good restaurant and a pub with supurb music - a must if you are looking for a good Irish evening!
Breakfast was leisurely and gave us the largest choice we have ever come across in all the places we have stayed in Ireland (including large hotels) and was delicious.
There was no rush in the morning, Nancy and her husband spent time chatting with us about the local area and we left feeling like we had known them for years. This was without doubt, Irish hospitality at it's best!
We travel around Ireland reguarly and will certainly be going back to this Guesthouse again, but staying longer!
