Coolefield House
Ranked #1 of 4 Millstreet B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I recently visited Coolefield House ijn October. The location was good next to the town of Millstreet. It is also a good location for traveling to many tourist areas from the Lakes of Killarney, Blarney, and the ring of Kerry. If your into fishing there is a river on the property where you can fish in peace. The owners Michael and Pam are well known locals and they make you at home in a relaxed setting. The inside of the house is large and has many comfortable rooms to choice from along with a great breakfast of local items.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Coolefield House for 2 nights and had a wonderful time! When we were planning out trip Michael (who owns the B&B with his wife Pam) had proved very helpful, emailing me restaurant recommendations and tips regarding what we should do over our stay. When we arrived we couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. We were greeted by Pam, Michael and their children, served delicious afternoon tea (all homemade - Pam and Michael have attended Ballymaloe cookery school and make fantastic food - their breakfasts are fabulous), and treated like we were their family friends. That day happened to be my birthday and the family provided us with a celebratory bottle of wine and gave me a box of chocolates as a present - it was so kind of them!

As well as being fantastic hosts, Pam and Michael boast a gorgeous house. Most of the buildings in the area are modern but Coolefield has been made to look like it was built over a century ago and would not look out of place in the pages of an interior decor magazine. The room we stayed in was spacious and beautifully decorated. It is most definitely one of the nicest B&Bs I've ever stayed in and such good value. Highly recommended!

Tips of things to do around Coolefield: go walking in Killarney National Park (about 30 mins drive - lovely scenery), have a Guinness in Kenmare, go for dinner at Granvilles in Macroom (about 30 mins drive, taxi will cost approx €20), fish on the Black Water (right by Coolefield House - unfortunately we missed the season but would have been great another time of year).

From start to finish, it was a fabulous trip! We loved our rooms, the location, out hosts Pam and Michael (and Ava and young Michael). We could not have asked for anything more! The food, company, hospitality- everything was top notch and wonderful. All home cooked meals with wonderful baked goods, Irish Breakfast, fresh fruits. We were made to feel like a member of the family and were encouraged to use their home as a meeting place for any family and friends who might want to meet up with us. We hated to leave. Can't wait to come back! Beautiful home and a wonderful family. Thank you Pam and Michael!

My family and I booked 2 rooms in this delightful Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. We arrived in the afternoon to homemake cakes and tea/coffee....after we were showed to our rooms, which can only be described as 5 star....bright and airy and where the en-suite was lovely with a power shower and towels supplied. After our night out we returned to a warm welcome of drinks and more homecooked food (the apple pie was to die for - I had 3 pieces!!!)....the hosts, Michael and Pam had their own visitors who joined us for drinks and provided a wonderful couple of hours of cracking irish sing a long and humour.....the following morning, breakfast was again a home cooked wonder of a full irish breakfast, where fruit, cereal and toast were also supplied....The food and hospitality remained as such for the rest of our stay....it didnt feel like we had stayed in a B&B....it felt like we were staying with old family friends....A lovely family sharing their home and wonderful irish hospitality with us......10 out of 10....the only bad thing I can say about this experience/stay - leaving!!!!!! Thank you Michael and Pam. Definitely recommended - we are staying again when we are next in Ireland!!!!

Thankyou Michael and Pam for a wonderful three days, you are certainly the perfect hosts, and the food that Pam serves up is a wonder to the tastebuds, the house is to die for and we enjoyed wandering around your farmland, but most of all we loved the company , you made us welcome and embraced us as your family, thankyou for this, and John enjoyed the whiskies and the chats into the small hours, and your friends that made us welcome and entertained us one evening gave us a true feeling of your Irish spirit, see you next year if the gathering of the clans comes off if not definately in four years . We would highly recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast.

Stayed with Pam and Michael for the Monstermac adventure race. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay here! Nothing is a problem. Michael is a mind of information and will point you in the right direction, whatever your needs. This is the ideal central location for touring Kerry and Cork. The breakfast is the business.... freshly cooked and the porridge will keep you going for the day. Thanks again Pam and Michael... will be back again but next time with the family.

I could not recommend Coolefield House enough. Michael is a superb host with the gift of the gab. The house itself is beautiful and an absolute joy to stay in. Add to that excellent breakfasts, lovely views from the top floor of the house and a peaceful setting. If you can stay here, then do.
