We stayed at the Melrose Bed & Breakfast in Clonakilty for two nights on a recent vacation in Ireland. It's a very comfortable and quiet B&B on the outskirts of Clonakilty (in West Cork, Ireland). The rooms are a good size and the entire place is very clean. Breakfast was yummy and Chris was very hospitable (although a bit slow to open up, once you get her started she's very friendly). The Melrose is about a 15-20 minute walk to the town center of Clonakilty. We had a front room on the first floor and it was very quiet. Although it advertises free WiFi, I could never connect. Clonakilty is close to Kinsale, and many of the sights of West Cork. We'd certainly recommend this B&B.
