Ben Hibberd


A lovely stay Room had fantastic view of bays at Garryvoe/ Ballycotton, food was fantastic even an early breakfast for an early check in and Margaret was very helpful with places to see and eat - highly recommended



Margaret was a really welcoming and helpful host. We were greeted with homemade scones and tea in a dining room that overlooks the sea. The room was comfy and clean, the view from the bedroom was really beautiful.Would definitely recommend.

An excellent place to stay,hosts are very helpful. Loved the breakfasts and teas. The scones are to die for Room was cozy and well appointed. A wonderful spot to walk the beach or explore the countryside



We stayed here 3 nights. First off we had trouble with the car rental dealer and Margret Tom picked us up at the train station in Cork. The rooms were very nice and view of the lighthouse at night added a bit of seacoast atmosphere. The breakfast menu is all one could hope for. The beach was close and we walked for about 5 miles. You cant find a better place to stay
