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.

Absolutely wonderful! After a long day of driving to Goleen, it was refreshing to receive a warm welcome, a clean room and a marvelous dinner on the waterfront! Looking forward to coming again!

We arrived very late at night, but were met at the door with a smile and warm welcome by Irene.We had to leave early in the morning but we’re served a hot and delicious breakfast by Vicki . We didn’t see much of Goleen, but the Heron’s Cove was a lovely place to stay.
