  • Description


    Hello! We are a family-owned Bed & Breakfast located a half mile outside the town of Dunmanway in the heart of West Cork. We are situated on a 120 acre farm surrounded by beautiful country scenery and our own private lake. Between our 3 rooms for the B&B and the cattle farm there is always lots to be done.

    Like our guests, you would be treated as one of the family and get to enjoy all the area has to offer in your down time. Family and friends often visit so there's always a new face around the house!

    We have about 100 beef cattle, our dogs Rocky and Jake, hens, a donkey, and a goat. We also have a vegetable garden where we grow produce that we use for the B&B.
