Sue, Irene & Bridie are all very attentive & accommodating. Pure professionalism and kindness. Even before I arrived, they were responsive and helpful to my queries and requests. During the stay, the room, food and service were excellent. I could not have asked for a more lovely experience.

What can i say about this place that hasn't been said before. Well, first of all the staff are excellent. The food was amazing. But most of all we absolutely loved the whole ambiance of the place. Breathtaking views of the harbour from the rooms. Laid on the bed looking out to the Cove at anytime of the day is Tranquility at its best. We will definitely be going back.

Heron’s Cove is an excellent venue. The service, the friendliness, the food, and the accommodation are second to none. It was great to revisit it after a long spell (no fault of Heron’s Cove). The view from our bedroom is breathtaking it’s tranquility just sucks one in to a comfort zone all of its own. Irene and her team looked after us so well I’ve already recommended it to my friends. We will be back as soon as we can ….. in 22. Con Dennehy

The food and service at Herons Cove is excellent just as it was 25 years ago on our first visit. This time was our second stay, the rooms are simple, immaculate, have fantastic views and everything needed for a comfortable stay. Bliss to wake up and look out over the Cove, followed by a delicious breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff , and we had dinner on each of our four night stay.
