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
