We found this place late on a wet afternoon but hadn't booked and there was no-one home when we knocked on the door. Whilst we were sitting in the car deciding what to do, Mona came flying down the road on her bike, skirts flying in the breeze. She welcomed us in and gave us tea and cake. The inside...

I absolutely LOVED this place! It's so unusual that it will have to be seen to be believed. The attention to detail from the decor to all the little touches in the bedrooms and even to the dining room is amazing. I stayed with my Fiance here, and it was so lovely and romantic aswell as the talking point of...

This place we found completely by accident, the woman who ran it (who's name escapes me now) was so incredible. I was in Skibbereen looking for areas where my family originated from and she personally contacted her friend who ran the historical center and connected us! Our room was on the top floor (no elevator) and it was a comfortable...

I just came for a couple of nights to see the islands of west cork and i staid longer then i expected. Every day is a different day; there is so much going on in this house, it changes everyday. This house has a character and the lovely Lady `Mona` who makes it special. Very lovely place, welcoming and unusual....

The Bridge House really is no ordinary guesthouse. It resembles something out of a Tim Burton movie, or something from a magical child hood dream. Tucked away on the quaint street, on the outside it would draw any passer by in. It is beautiful on the outside and inside. Once I was welcomed by Mona, my visual senses went wild...

At the first arriving we thought a little bit funny, but after the heartly welcome from Mona and discovering every corner of this nice and beautiful accomodation we have been fascinated. On the next morning we have been surprised by a fantastic breakfast. She gave us also a lot of hints and tipps around the area. We would book it...

My mother, father, and I stayed with Mona at the Bridge House on our very first trip to Ireland. Being American, we weren't sure what to expect. The Bridge House exceeded our expectations. It is absolutely exquisite. The bedrooms are so beautiful and well-decorated, and the beds are so comfortable! Mona is the best part though. She is a wonderful...

Booked for a girly getaway on the basis of its reviews, Bridge House and Mona did not disappoint! We had enormous fun just exploring every corner of our rooms and the amazing decor! Mona is a delightful hostess, helpful with recommendations of places to eat and places to visit, and a source of great stories ... do spend time getting...

The Bridge House, Skibbereen should be on the tourist map as a place worthy of visiting in and of itself, regardless of its everyday function as a guest house. This B & B is a den of quirky treasures, a unique testament to the idiosyncratic vision of its owner. From fairy lit mannequins, statues of Buddha and St Patrick, to...

Hanging over the entrance to Bridge House is a colorful sign stating 'Enter as strangers, leave as friends' and having stayed in this totally unexpected eclectic B&B, thats run by the lovely Mona, I have to agree. From the moment we arrived at the door, without a booking, Mona was more than accommodating. Entering the hall we were greeted by...
