We spent 3 days at Eileen´s and Pádraig´s farmhouse. It was absolutely fantastic. The farmhouse is really lovely and super tidy. Every room is shaped aesthetically in different colours and has a very comfortable bathroom. Eileen arranges every detail in a lovely way. There was such a warm welcome when we arrived with tea, coffee, self-made scones, bread, marmelade... The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit, cereals, cheese and a variety of freshliy cooked irish specialities. Eileen and Pádraig are so polite and truely interested in their guests. We had wonderful chats and it was a pleasure to listen to their stories. Thanks a lot, Eileen and Pádraig. We will treasure this stay! Sonja, who felt like a princess and Steffen
Don't let the fact it is out of Skibbereen persuade you not to stay here as the customer care is Beyer than any 5 star hotel experience. The hosts Eileen and Padraig are great characters and their focus is your comfort. I arrived and i was offered what i thought was a cup of tea. However there was loads of tasty jams cheeses crackers honey homemade scones cakes and tarts. Anything you wanted. I have never been offered a finer spread. Breakfasts are a repetition of the tea. Every choice you can imagine is there. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend to friends and family. I would give this lady 11 / 10 for a stunning service and attention to detail.
Its not that often that I write review's but I have the greatest of pleasure writing this. Coolbawn is the most wonderful b&b you will ever have the pleasure to stay in. Exceptional organic food, homemade bread,scones, jams ,farm fresh eggs and meats. The attention to detail is second to none. You will be blown away by the spectacular array of food that awaits you. However it won't be the food that brings you back, it will an amazing women called Eileen . Eileen is a rare find, the kind of person who runs her business for the sheer love of what she does, to meet people and to make sure they have the best time they possibly can. A thoughtful, kind, generous,caring person with a brilliant sense of humour, you will not want to leave, and when you do you will have made a new friend. The area is magnificent with lots of scenes of natural beauty to explore, such as lough hyne, if you want to get away from it all , you will not find a better place to stay than with the wonderful Eileen. It's the people that make Ireland the beautiful special country it is. Eileen is one of those special people you will never forget.…
For the third year in succession my wife and I have had the privilege of experiencing Eileen O'Driscoll's warm and generous hospitality at her lovely B&B accommodation Coolbawn Lodge Farmhouse near Skibbereen Co. Cork. Eileen greeted us in person when we arrived on Wednesday afternoon 6th September 2017 at the start of our three day visit. Since our previous visits we have become firm friends. We chatted for quite a while over a cup of tea and assorted homemade delights, before moving into one of her very clean and comfortable en suite bedrooms. The breakfast experience is of itself a rare and very enjoyable experience. We could have had virtually anything we wanted with excellent offerings of home baking, a wide choice of fresh, exotic and dried fruits. Full Irish or any cooked breakfast of our choice. She also provided a full selection of interesting breakfast cereals. Eileen spares no effort at pleasing her guests. This Farmhouse B&B maybe 9km outside the town of Skibbereen but it is a rare gem indeed. Making that journey there is well worth the effort. Michael & Rita Riordan Killiney Co. Dublin…
It was such a perfect stay--I don't know where to start. Easy parking, flexible check-in, clean and spacious room, quiet, good recommendations for dinner, less than 10 mins to town. Breakfast was spectacular--full breakfast (I had blueberry porridge with Bailey's, my partner had the full Irish--the best of the whole trip, apparently), plus 3 types of home-made breads/scones, 3 kinds of jam, tons of fruit, fresh local yogurt, local honey, various cereals and muesli that you could mix with goji berries/flax seeds/chia seeds/etc., various cheeses, loose leaf tea, mint water, lemon water...I could go on and on. We ate like kings. To top it off, the hospitality was outstanding. The hosts, Eileen and Padrig were the sweetest couple, and the most thoughtful hosts. We felt so lucky to meet them, and really would have been happy to stay and chat with them the whole day! If you enjoy good food, and chatting with locals, do yourself a favor and stay here. Had we known just how lovely our stay was going to be, we would have stayed a few more days : ).…
