Très bon accueil très bel endroit chambre avec terrasse super et spacieuse très calme Excellent petit déjeuner Dîner à éviter cher et insignifiant Attention pas de restaurant ouvert le s à Goleen excepté 1 pub avec 1 bon irish coffee Très belle route pour y accéder avec 1 super vue sur le fastnet par beau temps La note attribuée concerne seulement l’hôtel sans le diner

Very comfortable room and great breakfast. Fantastic location close to village with two great pubs. West Cork was our favorite place we visited in Ireland. We wished we could have stayed an additional night.
