The Herons Cove has been my home and business for 33 years. I and the team, Irene, Hannah, Bridie, Mary and Vicki, look forward to sharing our knowledge and love of West Cork and the Mizen with you. We love cooking and baking. Our award-winning restaurant and breakfast come highly recommended! We have a full licence and a great selection of wines and craft beers.

This was our favorite stay of our entire trip. Celebrated 25th Wedding anniversary dinner at restaurant attached to B&B and Mrs Irene went over the top to help make it a memorable night. Thank you Irene, your hospitality was amazing. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Ireland.

Irene was so welcoming, friendly and inviting. The room was incredibly spacious and the balcony had a view to die for. It was so nice to be able to have dinner in the restaurant too. My sister loved the wine selection and we tried quite a few bottles! The berry, granola, yogurt parfait was incredible at breakfast and I thought about it the rest of the trip. This was one of our favorite B&Bs on this trip!!

This was our third stay at The Heron's Cove since 2016 and, as usual, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Superb food, setting and service. Lovely place
