Ilenroy House
Ranked #9 of 12 Skibbereen B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 February 2013

I enjoyed the one night I stayed at Ilenroy house. Breda, the owner, was very nice and made sure I had directions to where I needed to go in Skibbereen the next day. She was very understanding when I had to cancel one person almost last minute, and didn't penalise me for it. She also cooked a delicious full Irish breakfast, yum! The hostel is very easy to find, right on one of the main streets.

Overall, I would recommend this hostel. It's one fall-down point for me was that I have stayed in nicer rooms in B&Bs, but it was clean and spacious.

I stayed here with my husband and 1yr old daughter. The room was very comfortable and clean, shower had very hot water temps/good pressure (important to this American) and great full Irish breakfast. Irish hospitality at it's best! Location was right down town.

By the time we arrived here, my wife was quite ill. We telephoned ahead to axplain the position. We were allowed into our room ahead of booking in time. A doctor was needed and Ronnie made a very prompt appointment for us. He explained whewre the surgery was and did all he could to help. More than we had any right to ask. In the end, the doctor sent us home and the holiday ended early. But a measure of his care was that when we arived home, there was an email asking how we were.
The house is clean and our room overlooked the garden and river. Quiet and perfect for a good night's sleep.
The only downside is that the house is on Skibbereen's main street and parking is difficult. Against that, it is a minute's walk from the town centre.
Hopefully we can go back next year and try again.

B&B recommended by another overbooked B&B.

Accommodation was clean but decor was only average. The beds were extremely comfortable. Despite being just off the main street the location was extremely peaceful. The highlights were the friendliness of the landlady and the great Irish breakfast which was one of the best we encountered.
