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

A lovely place in a stunning setting where we got a warm welcome and good food. What more could anyone ask. Oh yes, it's ideally located for a visit to the outstanding Mizen Vision.

We had a very nice room and it was very clean. The restaurant was award winning - though our dinner was not impressive. The steak was raw on one part and medium on the other. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was very good.

A wonderful spot, beautiful and tranquil. Our room had a wonderful balcony to sit and listen to the peaceful sound of the birds and sea. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. The room comfortable with all necessities. The food was superb and we would return in an instant. Many thanks to all at Herons Cove it was a pleasure to meet you.

The food was by far the best we had our entire trip. It was wonderful. And the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to respond quickly to any request we had. Our entire group was thrilled with our stay at Heron’s Cove and we all promised ourselves we must come back. It’s the only place we’ve stayed that looked like a postcard and lived up to that very ideal. In our book, it’s a 10!
