Unfortunately we did not make it to The Heron's Cove. We were delayed in Cobh, down pour and roads kept us away. Hoping to get there on our next trip. We were very sorry to have missed this B&B😞

A lovely place to stay in an amazing setting. Food was excellent. Did have a musty smell in the anteroom to our lodging (not in the room itself) - probably from the storm that came through the week before or would have rated a 10.

Amazing experience - quality food, scenic, 2 minute walk to a quaint little town. One of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommend.
