Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just spent 3 nights with friends at this lovely- spotlessly clean B and B. The rooms are very cosy and the beds are extremely comfortable- we slept like babies! Adela is a wonderful host- friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is superb- lots of choices and very generous portions. The terrace is a great space where we were able to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the boats in the harbour. The accommodation is only a stroll from union hall with 2 great bar/ restaurants and well positioned to enjoy the other pleasures of West Cork. We had a great time and hope to return sometime soon.

We made this booking last night only to wake up to a cold voicemail this morning, asking me to cancel because they ‘do not accept’ children. Pity this information wasn’t clearly visible when I booked! I have never heard of a hotel to ‘not accept children’ Quite happy to cancel…

Like a previous stay here the welcome was warm and friendly by three generations of the family, including the baby grandson. Shearwater is very comfortable and clean with great bed and pillows. The views over the harbour are stunning from the bedrooms and breakfast room. The breakfast is cooked to order and very tasty, with Adela being attentive and informative about places to go. It is a short walk to the village, but be very aware early bookings are essential in the only two food options available in Union Hall.

We have just come down to earth after a one week stay in fabulous Union Hall in Shearwater Studio. It was so comfortable and had everything we needed for a week’s holiday in West Cork. The view from the studio ensures you totally switch off! Adela ensures everything is top notch and makes you feel most welcome at all times. There is so much to do around Union Hall on foot or by bike so no need to be driving for miles and miles. We are planning to go back to Shearwater Country House again later in the year and can’t wait. We highly recommend a stay here it’s just fabulous!

Stayed here with my sisters for 2 nights while doing some sightseeing and catching up with family in the area. Adela was a great host and really felt welcome and comfortable and she couldn’t do enough for us.The rooms are beautiful with amazing views and absolutely spotless. Breakfast was lovely and kept us going for the day. Had dinner in Dintys the first night and it was really good, would recommend and had dinner in the dock wall the second night and it was also really good and would recommend but you must book. It also helped we were lucky with the weather

We felt really at home in our lovely room with its big comfortable bed and magnificent view of the harbour where the fishing boats came and went all the time. Union Hall is an authentic fishing village where everyone is friendly and welcoming. Everything was spotless and our hostess, Adela, couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was delicious, and it was lovely to sit out on her veranda and watch the boats, read a book or have a snack.

Spotlessly clean studio with spectacular sea view. Comfy bed, crisp white linens, good shower and cotton towels. Breakfast was the best we have had in a long time and we travel a lot. All quality ingredients, excellently cooked full Irish (there was also scrambled egg with smoked salmon and pancakes but we had the full Irish both mornings), great coffee, selection of fresh fruit all served in a sunroom overlooking the bay. We were so impressed we tried to book again but there was no availability for the weekend we were looking at. We will definitely be back. The lady of the house clearly knows how to run a superb guesthouse and is really helpful and friendly.

Host Adela has a warm welcome that set a positive tone for our stay in this lovely B&B that is clean and comfortable with stunning views over the harbour. A short walk from the village it is a great location from which to travel the wider area of West Cork. The room has a large comfortable bed and an ensuite that is well appointed. The breakfast is cooked to order and very tasty, the pancakes being a particular favourite. A word of warning. restaurant options in Unionhall are very limited so book well in advance

Visited Adela' s Country House in September having come across the border from the Kingdom ..... a time when we were allowed to do so. So now you Cork people have it all to yourselves during these Covid times. So if I was in Cork I would have no hestitation in booking a few nights stay. Everything I wanted to say has been said in the last couple of reviews. I agree 100% about what they have had to say about their stay with Adela. You are in good and safe hands at Shearwater.

Adela is very welcoming and friendly and passionate about providing the highest standards of customer care to every customer. Breakfast was delicious and ingredients locally sourced. Felt very safe despite covid, as procedures were all in place. Amazing views from the room, views of the harbour from all windows and again during breakfast. Location is very central with a car, between Skibbereen and Clonakilty. Union Hall is equally beautiful if you choose to stay in the area. Adela has provided a TV room and lots of outdoor seating to help guests feel at home, all of these are easily accessible at the guest's convenience. We would definitely recommend the Shearwater Country House to friends and family and hope to return in the not too distant future! Adela has great knowledge of West Cork and her recommendations for daytrips really added to our stay also. Thank you Adela.
