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.

We would be happy to help you learn English, farm work and the operation of a Bed & Breakfast. We are a very down-to-earth and friendly family and we are always interested in meeting new people. When we go to local towns for shopping, etc. of course you would be welcome to come along.
We have a variety of tasks and projects depending on your skill set and the season. Tasks can include...
- housework (doing the dishes, ironing, dusting, cooking and baking)
- B&B (changing and cleaning etc.)
- vegetable garden (planting, weeding, harvesting, mowing grass)
- farm (herding cattle, feeding the animals, fencing)
- painting, possibly woodwork
We are a busy family so it's important that you would be able to jump straight in and be self motivated.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
You would have your own bedroom and private bathroom in our home. All meals are included.
We would be pleased to take you to see local sights when time allows and of course we could drop you to the local town to get bus transportation. We also have bicycles available for you to use. Below is a list of places you can visit, almost all reachable by bus.
