“Excellent Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2008

Excellent guest house with excellent food in an excellent location close to a beautiful village in a beautiful corner of Ireland.

The owners try hard to make your stay a pleasant one, great facilities such as broadband, sun terrace, and hot tub (free to those staying two or more nights) added to the clean spacious accommodation make this a place we would plan to return to.

Only downside Bed and Breakfast means continental breakfast with cooked breakfast being extra.

  • Liked — Location and cleanliness
  • Disliked — Cooked breakfast an extra
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled as a couple

I booked our two week vacation all online for two families. Our trip was awesome all except at Corthna Lodge. We walked in with the children and the lady behind the counter made rude gestures like our children were nasty. We also brought our babysitter who stayed with the children while we went to the pub. When we arrived back at the lodge the babysitter had fallen asleep so we were knocking on the door and the man who owned the lodge came down the hall yelling at us telling us saying how ridiculous we were instead of just opening the door to let us in. Then after he finally lets us in and we were all in our rooms he yells "You have five minutes or I am calling the Cops"!!! WHAT!. People go to ireland to have fun and see the land and meet the people not to be talked to like an idiot. This was the worst place we stayed and will never go back. The pictures don't make up for their rude and childish behavior of the owners.

  • Liked — Felt bad for the student who had to work for them. She was the only one that was nice.
  • Disliked — I thought it was nice online but after meeting them it didn't matter I just wanted to leave.

We would like to let know our futur Guests about our version of this also for us not nice evening. First those guests arrived late without telling us and instead of the booked 3 double rooms for 6 people they were 12.
They explainded that they thought we had 2 double beds per room like in the US, which is not the case in Ireland or at least not in most Guesthouses. We tried to find them other accommodations but in High Season and especially in a small place like Schull it was impossible, as on top they declared only to go elswhere all together or not, that was of course impossible in August. So we started putting matresses on the floor for the children and offered the baby-sitter a room in our privat section. Instead of being gratefull for helping them out and going to there rooms the children turned on all the TV's let the doors open and the adults where discussing and phoning loudly in the corridor. Our other guests started to complain and treatning to leave on the next day if this did not stopp. The adults then left and went to a Pub at 2am they came back ringing the bell like crazy and knocking on the door. Until we were dressed all other guest were awake too. We then found out that the baby-sitter had looked in the other children and had taken all keys with her, that alone was very strange as she was not sleeping in the same. building, in our opinion she should have stayed with the children when the adults had all left and on top she had kept all keys ! Off course we were not pleased and when it got unpleasent between us, my husband said he would call the neighbour which is a guard and if they would not get quiet they should better leave immediately. This all happened during our busiest week with guest staying who had all booked for several days. We have our Guesthouse for 9 years now and this was the worst night we ever experienced with somebody.

Stayed for 2 nights in this B&B and we were very impressed with the room, location and the service. The gardens are fantastic with incredible views and the whole house was spotless. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in a B&B and the couple running it from switzerland were incredibly courteous and helpful. Would definetly recommend for couples or small families. Room 6 seems the best if available.
