Really lovely setting and the reception drink and food afterwards was top notch 👍I had the roast beef sirloin and my wife had the salmon ... The hall area was really welcoming ... Small but adequate for the reception ... Pity that the weather was not as good... More

The room we had was lovely, very clean and tastefully decorated, with tea and coffee making facilities. The on-suite had plenty of complimentary toiletries and lots of clean towels every day. There are also cottages... More

Arrived on Friday 13th for my daughters wedding on 14th. Had room in main house which was very nice. Shower head has hole in head resulting in water splashing onto ceiling and landing outside shower. A minor problem. No one at reception to greet guests after 5pm. Staff during wedding reception were excellent. Food was simply superb. Congrats to Chef.... More

We recently visited Barnabrow House. It's location in East Cork is beautiful with stunning views and so close to lovely beaches. The food is exceptional and we were glad to learn that they use locally sourced produce. We found the staff very friendly and helpfu.
