We stumbled upon this place by accident, visiting Schull for the first time. We didn't look up the B&Bs beforehand and simply followed the signs to Rock Hill. The house is a little secluded but following the signs is definitely worth it: First of all it boasts a spectacular view over the ocean but even more spectacular is the B&B... More

As many previous reviews have stated, this is indeed something very special and a little out of the way and certainly out of the ordinary. Cornelia is not just a perfect host but unlike most B&B's where you are allocated your room and only frequent the dining area at breakfast, in fact Cornelia's house is your home for your stay....

We stayed for one night whilst touring Ireland and we were not disappointed. The owner is a kind and welcoming lady and makes you feel at home straight away. The rooms are individual and a reflection of the owner. A wonderful eclectic mix of books and false books and some bespoke posters and paintings. The breakfast was cooked to perfection... More

I stayed in Cornelia's adorable b&b for 13 nights. A lovely lady with a kind heart who will go out of her way to make your stay a very pleasant one. Truly delicious breakfasts, stunning views in a peaceful and magical environment. The perfect place to stay while in Schull. I fell in love there.

This is a very nice B&B near Schull with a beautiful view of the bay. Owner was very sociable and helpful. She allowed me to check in early to my room as I need to change to go to a wedding. Breakfast of salmon and scrambled egg was wonderful.

We stayed here for two nights on out tour of Southern Ireland. We were greeted by a very welcoming host, Cornelia. The room we had was front facing so we had an exceptional view of the bay and islands... Which was amazing. Breakfast was delicious and many options were available.. The only thing we didn't,t particularly like was the fact... More

This B&B is in a wonderful location, lovely house, beautiful view. The room was comfortable and the breakfasts are exceptional-lots of choice. Cornelia is very friendly and we enjoyed staying in her house. It's within easy reach of Schull and there are nice walks roundabout.

First, it is not hard to find. It stands on a hill with such an amazing view that makes your jaw drop. There's serenity and peace. It has enough parking space in case you arrive by car. The room was spacious, very interestingly furnished with lots of photos of the owner who travelled a lot. Bathroom has everything that should... More
