BridgeView Farmhouse, now what can I say to praise this B&B for there are no words to praise it highly enough. Last June we happened across this place and if ever the saying that “places find you rather than you finding places” well this is validation of such a place. After the long journey from Dublin what a “Gem” we discovered.
The setting is perfect. Nestling halfway up the side of a mountain about 3 miles from the lovely village of Killbrittain, West Cork on a working dairy farm.
Overlooking the West Cork seafront this is the kind of place you can imagine God went to rest on the seventh day.
If you’re looking for a quite, relaxing and get away from it all break then look no further than the BridgeView Farmhouse B&B.
There were 4 of us (3 adults and a child) and boy did we enjoy ourselves, walking, fishing, swimming, talking (Marion the owner is a brilliant host and tour guide, she’s from the locality ) and a nice few cool beers overlooking the sea on the outdoor Patio/Garden we indulging in the best of homemade wholesome food not to mention the most gigantic “Full Irish” I have eaten did I mention COSMOS our dog was with us and had a “Ball” running around the grounds of the house, yeah it’s a dog friendly B&B, it’s the B&B that just keeps giving !
We took a trip to the local Pub where the locals were more than friendly to chat.
We had the freedom of the house, coming and going and eating as we wished.
The owner is a “mind” of information and in between her busy life style she always has time for a chat and a cuppa, a brilliant and inspiring woman.
Her life story is so inspiring it would make one feel like jumping up and running a Marathon on the spot !
I can not recommend the BRIDGEVIEW FARMHOUSE highly enough, it may be off the beaten path but boy is it worth the effort in finding one of Ireland’s hidden gems.
Thank you Marion,
Mel,Edita,Jonas and Sla and Cosmos, see you next year.
