“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Second visit here when visiting West Cork. A great place for lunch and very friendly staff- could not have been more welcoming. The food was excellent and fresh ingredients and made to order. We had a 'fussy' eater with us and they could not have been more accommodating.

Stayed in the Bridge House for one night but should have booked it for a longer stay! Rooms very clean & spacious. Beds very comfy. It was great just walking down the stairs and arriving into this charming country pub! Staff so friendly and helpful! The live music also made our night! We danced the night away. We went to Bantry for dinner but once we got back to the Bridge House for drinks we regretted not eating here. The food looked lovely. Woke up to a tasty full Irish! We were stuffed! We also couldn't get over how tasty the coffee was! The courtesy bus is an excellent service and always on time. Really looking forward to staying in the Bridge House again! Not enough of these pubs/B&B's in Ireland!!

After a long drive from Cork towards Bantry, where there is magnificent scenery but almost nowhere to stop for lunch, we stumbled across the Bridge House at exactly the right time. It's on a main road, but nevertheless in a quite remote location. Verdict - simply excellent home-cooked fare at a quite acceptable price - two plates of turkey and ham were almost overladen, and the plentiful vegetables (one dish each) were cooked to perfection. Additional indulgences were an unexpected bowl of chips (perfect to soak up the spare gravy!), and pear and blueberry cheesecake with an ice cream accompaniment. Of course, we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day.

Whilst on our annual walk from A-B, (a walk commemorating the journey taken by miners, in the 19th century, travelling from Allihies in West Cork to Bunmahon on the Copper Coast in Waterford. A total of 145 miles), we came across this magnificent bar/restaurant/b&b. We really couldn't have expected the terrific welcome we received from Ber and Noreen. The food was as good as you'd expect in a top city restaurant. I had the chicken stuffed with black puddding, and it was only delicious.........yummy. The evening spent in the bar was refreshing, pardon the pun. The bedrooms were spacious, very clean and very comfortable. Definitely be back again next year, if not before. Thanks again ladies for your very warm welcome

Room Tip: The 2 doubles at the end of the corridor are as good as a 5star suite.

Lovely little B and B. The rooms were very clean and had a bathroom ensuite. The staff were really friendly, and I will definitely go back next time I'm in West Cork. Definitely five stars for a
B and B. Lovely pub too and a great little beer garden.

Definitely coming back!

Room Tip: Go for one of the ensuite ones. Fantastic rooms.

As we had been in another Bed & Breakfast within an pub sometime before in Quilty, we didn´t expect much warmth and personal atmosphere in a B&B which is located inside a pub-house. But we were extremely positively surprised! The room and bathroom were very clean and cosy and of reasonable price, we were welcomed with some fresh tea, and even our bicycles became an extra spot to "sleep" outside in a little garage.
For our dinner the pub-owner fulfilled our special wishes, told us something about the different breweries and about Ireland and switched on the weather-forecast on TV extraly for us! We slept very well in the comfortable beds and got a wonderful Irish breakfast even with pudding an beans!
The couple who runs this B&B and Pub is one of the friendliest people we met in Ireland!
Thank you for your support and company!
Karin & Christian

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear side of the house!
