Beautiful location! The views from the drive in were absolutely stunning. The views from the B&B were amazing and the food was great. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. We stayed a couple of nights in the middle of our trip and it was the best decision we made. We were able to relax and regroup for the remainder of our trip. I would 100% recommend this location. My only complaint was that the dining area was a little too warm for my comfort, but I think it was just from the sun coming off the water through all the windows. Still a must stay during your trip!

Beautiful setting with great view of the cove. Very friendly staff, and having a gourmet restaurant on-site was very convenient, as there are not a lot of other restaurants nearby. The food and service were great (we ate both dinner and the included breakfast there), and the room was charming and very satisfactory.

Plan to stay a couple of days due to the remoteness of the location. Having said that, Heron's Cove provides an ideal escape. We walked into town and said Hello to Martyn, the owner of Fastnet Pub, locals are very friendly. Irene, is a wonderful hostess and a fantastic cook. Despite coming in at a later hour, Irene fixed us a great steak dinner and the breakfasts were outstanding. Definitely a recommendation. If you are looking for fantastic scenery, Heron's Cove is the place.
