We stay here every year when we visit Clonakilty for the South of Ireland Band competition. Norma greets us each year like old friends as she serves us Tea & Scones. We just love the selection of food Norma serves every morning for breakfast. This is a great Bed & Breakfast to stay in.

We stayed at 6 B&Bs across Ireland. We loved them all, but this was by far our favorite. Mrs Walsh welcomed us with tea and scones/jam, and she had maps and great advice ready for us to make the most of our time in Clonakilty.
