Very enjoyable stay at Dunmore House. Beautiful hotel with spectacular views. Staff were helpful & pleasant, & all seem to acknowledge their guests. Good selection at breakfast with locally sourced jams etc, bar food good also. Great base for touring west Cork. I would highly recommend this hotel & will be returning.
