The bridge house is owner managed by the most amazing lady Mona Best. The bridge house is a Victorian delight with quirky wonderful decor and furnishings. The rooms are comfortable and fun. Mona is the most welcoming host and does a wonderful breakfast. Could not recommend it enough.

Mona is wonderful. Her place is full of her charm. Absolutely wonderful. Great breakfast, great decor, great bit of craic out of Mona. We stayed for three nights and would recommend it to anyone with even the slightest bit of adventure in them.

Stayed at Mona's again recently. Fantastic as ever. Best breakfast in the country. Slightly different every time and always delicious. And great everything else. Lovely beds and all kinds of things to look at. I recommend it to anyone visiting me. Geoff

A stay at the Bridge House is truly memorable. Mona Best has created a magic box packed full of tricks & surprises - ostrich feathers & chandeliers dripping with beads abound - it's louche, playful and atmospheric - and great fun. She has an original aesthetic - and is a mine of great stories & anecdotes to boot.

We decided to visit Skibbereen because it was a place we had often passed through and wanted to see more of. My wife's family were there over 100 years ago. We chose the Bridge House when we read existing reviews and that it had been awarded 'Most Unusual B&B in Ireland' - a title that must take some winning. Mona,...

My husband and I stayed here for one night recently. We were attending the wedding of friends in Skibbereen. We loved our room and the whole uniqueness of the decor. Breakfast was good and at our request Mona served us a late breakfast and we had had a very late night/early morning return to the B&B. The only criticism we...

Before one enters this magical place it's obviously going to be amazing from the outside. Enter, meet lovely Mona and you're whisked through a fantastic hallway to a fabulous room. It's just the best, actually hard to explain it's so wonderful. I can't wait to return and I've told everyone, unique!

We had a superb stay in this guesthouse, it's like stepping into a different world with vintage clothes, mannequins and second hand items adding to the charm of the house. Each room is decorated uniquely and the attention to detail is second to none. Everywhere you look there is are humorous and interesting items like retro hats and funny books...
