Schull was very attractive and Nancy made us feel at home from the very outset. The guest house is spacious and very well appointed with a marvellous panoramic view of Schull harbour - what more could you ask for? We plan to return again and again and heartily recommend Stanley House. Nancy was very attentive to our dietary needs and...

I couldn't recommend this B&B highly enough. Nancy is a fantastic host who serves an excellent breakfast. The house is spotless and has a real homely, comfortable feel. Its also in a beautiful location with a gorgeous view. I couldn't fault it!

This is by far the cleanest, tidiest and friendliest B&B I have ever stayed. There is nothing that can be faulted in any way. Nancy was a great host and before we had even unpacked tea, coffee and cake were on the table. Absolutely stunning views. My first time to Skull and I will be back and know exactly where...

Nancy is fantastic, accommodations are fantastic, views are fantastic! Hope I can come again and stay longer! Nancy is so personable and really shows she cares about her guests' comfort. She is also a great cook and served us tea and brown bread upon our arrival on her porch with views of the harbor.

I feel like Nancy and her Stanley House are almost legendary at this point. We have benefited from her lovely charm and beautiful B&B twice now. She is so good at what she does and she makes it look easy. You can’t get better than this one. Breakfast is a delight. The fruit bowl and the waffles are unbelievable. Nancy...

We arrived to a wonderful welcome from our host Nancy Brosnan. Afternoon tea and delicious lemon drizzle cake was so delightful after a long journey. Her breakfast choices will suit every palette, do try the traditional black and white pudding with your Irish cooked breakfast, you won't be disappointed. Our room was comfortable and clean an amazing location. We found...

We have now visited Stanley House on over 20 occasions. This speaks for itself and we never tire of the warmth and welcome that we always receive from Tom and Nancy Brosnan. We stayed in our favourite room (no 3) with its wonderful views over Roaringwater Bay and out towards the Islands. On one evening there was a super yacht...

Had 3 wonderful days in Stanley House. Nancy welcomes you like a friend making you feel at home in her beautiful house. The garden or the conservatory have incredible views of Roaring Water Bay. Delicious breakfast with a large choice of freshly prepared food. We enjoyed the stroll by the harbor to town. Would recommend New Haven Restaurant for dinner....

We stayed at the Stanley House during our family trip to Ireland just this past week in June of 2016. The property was perfect and the staff (i.e. just the owner, Nancy) was extremely nice and welcoming. The property had a lovely patio and glass-enclosed porch, and both provided wonderful views of the harbor. Nancy could not have been nicer,...
