Trip Advisor Feedback
Stayed at The Heron’s Cove for the second time recently. Was travelling on my own and was made so very welcome by the staff at this truly delightful place. I thoroughly enjoyed my beautifully cooked breakfast and sumptuous dinners, thanks to the weather, served on the terrace overlooking the cove. I look forward to returning again not only to enjoy The Heron’s Cove, but to immerse myself in the magical area that surrounds it. Stayed: July 2018, travelled solo
I stayed in this guest house as part of a group cycle trip in West Cork. It is a lovely guest house in a very scenic location beside the sea in Goleen. The rooms are very good and the evening dinner and breakfast were delicious. Very welcoming staff too. Stayed: May 2018, travelled with friends
