5km from Carrigaline

Meet your host…

Chris & Claire Gotto

Chris and Claire inherited the house from his parents and are gradually making it their own. Chris ran the family farm next door until his son was ready to take over, while Claire has a background in history and is an avid gardener. You'll usually find her outdoors and him in the kitchen. They love having guests and will happily ply you with tea and coffee while they talk you through all County Cork has to offer.

P43 YK06

Set in the lush rolling countryside this Georgian country house was built in 1791 and has distinct authentic charm. Willowhill House Bed & Breakfast is only 20 minutes from Cork Airport and 30 minutes from Kinsale along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Whether it’s golfing, sailing, kayaking, whale or bird watching, horse riding, photography, sightseeing, surfing, diving, archaeological tours, whiskey tasting or genealogy, Willowhill House Bed & Breakfast is an ideal base.

There is a selection of gastro pubs, which serve food within a 15 minute drive and Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland, is a 30 minute drive away.

The walled garden beckons one to stroll around and explore its treasures, perennial beds, roses, fruit trees, vegetables, many birds and its old dove cote.

The sitting room and conservatory are available to plan the next adventure in the countryside or on the dramatic coastline. It is a place to bring books and unwind.

Dear Claire and Chris, I echo the same gratitude to you and Chris as my sister Janet from Canada. It was a most memorable stay at your beautiful home. I will surely remembered the sound of the willow trees blowing through the house with their circulating embrace. Those threads were everywhere..). Moreover, thank you both for letting us use your table to organize our work in peace and quiet. The pots of tea and cakes awaiting us when we arrived home on most days will be forever ingrained in my heart. Your home truly was a home away from home. Thank you both again for your gracious hospitality and friendship. Please take good care of yourselves and maybe our paths will cross again in the future. ☘️☘️☘️❤️❤️❤️

Chris and Clair may very well be the friendliest hosts we've ever came across at a B&B. This was probably our favorite inn in all of Ireland. They were so welcoming...tea and cookies, making pub reservations for us, chatting about anything and everything, tips of what to see, where to eat, great breakfasts, and even singing to Neil Diamond while cooking breakfast (love it!). Its a bit in the country but its a pleasant drive to Kinsale, and while we only stayed two nights , It looks like Cobh and Cork are pretty close as well. You should definitely stay at this inn!
