Had read great reviews about this restaurant , but the experience was way different. There was no welcome, the food was basic , poorly presented and overpriced. Such a disappointing experience considering it was included in the Michelin Guide. I would not recommend The Herons Cove

We enjoyed a meal here as a family of four with two small children. We felt very safe and this restaurant has adopted the highest sanitary practices that I have seen during the pandemic. The scallops were divine and my husband's lobster was delicious too. Looking forward to a return visit.

The only highlight was the service was brillant. The food was extremely basic and way too overpriced for what you got. I don't know how this place got a Michelin star the food was below average not wow atall and no nice music inside the place and cheap wood interior very very disappointed we will not be returning!

Myself and my wife enjoyed our brief one night stay in Heron’s Cove on our early August 2020 staycation. Before we headed to Mizen Head, Barley Cove Beach and Crookhaven (Goleen a good jumping off spot for all these places) and Heron’s Cove was a nice little spot off the Main Street in Goleen for a nice dinner, great view out our window onto the cove (complete with real life Heron!) and a nice breakfast the following morning. Thumbs up!

We had friends from Donegal visiting so decided to tour West Cork, hitting all the beauty spots. I can safely say the meal at Heron’s Cove was the highlight. We had tried to book accommodation but no luck. We will certainly find another date to return on an overnight visit. The stunning backdrop is amazing, the staff were friendly & welcoming and the food was sublime. The steps taken to ensure safety of staff and customers were effective but did not adversely impact on the enjoyment of the evening.
