We were on second floor at rear overlooking the river. Room was newly decorated and comfortable. The property is dated as other reviewers have stated but it was charming, clean, and had everything we needed for what was a very wet two days. The owners Ronnie and Mrs were lovely and made us feel genuinely welcome. There was plenty of... More

Nice location, free parking located nearby. City center is just a short stroll away. Beds were comfy and room was nice and clean. Great breakfast made to order. The city offers lovely restaurants and a great local art center.

AS Ilenroy is just on the edge of town parking is easier than the centre. A warm welcome, a pleasant room facing the river meant I slept well although the road is fairly quiet in the evenings. An amazing breakfast sets you up for the day.

We stayed here for three nights in july 2016. Our rooms were clean and properly serviced each day. The breakfast was excellent and the couple who owned the B and B went out of their way to make us welcome. We got great advice each day about the best places to visit in the locale. I'd have no hesitation in... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a short road trip around West Cork. Honestly could have spent longer in Skibbereen if I'd realised what an interesting place it is. The rooms at Ilenroy House are a little old fashioned but that adds to the charm - it's like staying in a much loved aunt's house. Very good... More

Stayed here in July 2016. We booked at fairly short notice and were lucky to get a room. The house is near the town centre and has plenty of parking nearby. Our room was lovely: clean, tidy, nicely-decorated, with a shower room. The view was lovely too: onto the river at the back of the house. The room was bigger... More

Can't remember when I last stayed in a B&B (more than 30 years at least!) but Ilenroy House brought back to me why this type of accommodation is so different from Hotels as a "product". For most hotel staff it's just a job. For those who run B&B's it's much more than a job; it's a way of life, something... More

Great place to stay. Driving the narrow streets in town can be a hair raising experience for North American drivers. The B&B is centrally located with parking on the street. Easiest to find parking after six. We explored the town on the first day and used the B&B as a base travelling to Mizen head the following day returning in... More
