It is located a little out of town but the grounds are amazing - panoramic views from our well equipped and beautifully decorated rooms, and even deer in the home paddock. The rooms and whole house are so clean and homely. We appreciated the use of the sun room where...

We stayed at Stanley House for the first time but it will not be our last. Nancy the owner was lovely and the B&B was fabulous. The view has to be seen to be appreciated- to put in one word 'Stunning'.

A return visit to this consistently excellent BnB. Wonderfully comfortable, spotlessly clean and always a warm welcome from the owners Nancy and Tom. Tea and homemade cake on arrival and a lovely guest lounge make it a comfortable stay in the most inclement weather. Lovely breakfasts kickstart the day of exploring this lovely part of the world. With fabulous views...

The property is welcoming, immaculate, and completely comfortable; Nancy's hospitality is extraordinary; and the daily breakfast was both delicious and fortifying for days of exploring West Cork.

Stayed for 2 nights mid August. It is as wonderful as always and we hope to come again next year. It is the best B&B and we recommend it highly. The genuine hospitality, comfort and super foods make it a memorable stay every time. Marvellous views and near enough to walk to the village. Mary & Tom

Myself and Jay stayed here a few weeks back, had a great time - breakfast was delicious, rooms lovely (with nice cookies).. hospitality fantastic. Will definitely stay again. The area where the house is overlooks the sea, even tho our room did not have a sea view, the breakfast area had a beautiful view of the bay.
