We stayed 2 nights here and can easily say it is probably the best Bed and Breakfast/ small guesthouse we have stayed in in Ireland. The room was very clean and comfortable, with lovely bed linen and towels. There was a good selection of tea and coffee and we were really impressed to see the efforts made to recycle waste.
The breakfast is really great and the restaurant serves really good locally sourced food. The view from the restaurant and rooms is of the harbor and it is so quiet and peaceful, a perfect place to unwind. With beautiful Barleycove beach and Mizen Head just a short drive this is a quaint and quiet area of West Cork off the beaten track and away from tourist gift shops!
