Stayed here in September 2020 for 2 nights as part of a trip on the Wild Atlantic Way. Location was perfect for getting around Baltimore on foot, really good hosts and good coronavirus measures in place that helped with sense of security. Also really close to Lough Hyne for climbing Knockomagh hill. Breakfast options were really good and delivered to the room with great efficiency. We also availed of a boat trip where we saw dolphins so this was really enjoyable. Rianne was more than helpful and sent on maps/food recommendations for the area and for further locations on our stay. Will hopefully return to stay here in the future!
While it was only a short stay as part of a larger trip around Cork and Kerry, our time at Stonehouse with Rianne and Jerry was superb. The adaptations in pandemic times did not affect the warmth of welcome and takeaway breakfast delivered to the door was a fantastic replacement to a sit down breakfast. We felt very safe in non-intrusive way throughout our stay. The room we stayed in was extremely comfortable with a modern bathroom and a private balcony to soak up some sea air. Also the range of tea and coffee supplies in the hallway meant we were never far from the brew of our choice. This accommodation was the perfect base of operations for going out to explore West Cork. We were also so happy to have changed our plans to make a whale watching trip with Jerry - after a thrilling boat ride along the coastline of nearby islands with the stunning silhouette of Fastnet lighthouse on the horizon Jerry brought us up to two humpback whales for a stunning close up look! All-in-all this was a very memorable stay and we will be back to visit safe in the knowledge that we will have a warm welcome and a relaxing stay. Thank you Rianne and Jerry for looking after us and giving us a much MUCH needed break in these trying times!…
Rianne and Jerry were two lovely hosts. They were very helpful. Give us advise for visit the surrounding and availe of the opportunities that were open with the Country restrictions for Covid19. Breakfast was excellent. Bread just cooked and good few options even with the restrictions that make you get your breakfast in bed. The saladefruit was exceptional. The property is really well placed and you don t need to move your car to availe of restaurants or activiies
Really well run and great food. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food arrives piping hot. It’s (deservedly) a popular spot so book ahead. Definitely try the chicken wings - really exceptional!
