It took us twenty two hours door-to-door to arrive at MOSSIE’s from Santa Barbara, California. But it was well worth the journey. Matti and Vanessa have mastered the art of Irish hospitality. They are the soul of this B & B and the beautiful gardens that surround. This is a very special place, full of a sweet and peaceful energy. We felt completely revived from our long journey after staying here. We left renewed and ready for the rest of our trek across Ireland.
What can I say.... Vanessa and Matti are just perfect hosts. The accommodation is gorgeous, very sympathetically restored. The very simple touches of fresh flowers the hand made soaps, shampoo and shower gel and the beautiful soft furnishings throughout make this a very special experience. The breakfast menu is plentiful and the home baked bread just lovely. A perfect location for exploring west Cork and the Beara peninsula. We look forward to returning.
I stayed here as a solo traveler, just for one night. Absolutely gorgeous location, house, and grounds...so charming. Matti and Vanessa were welcoming and helpful. I stayed in the French Room, very beautiful and comfortable, with a nice balcony. Breakfast was less of the traditional B&B fare (no scones, brown bread), with warm flaky pastries, homemade jams, and hot dishes (I got the avocado toast with sprouts and a soft egg, delicious!). They have an "honor bar" for guests since going out for a drink is more difficult. On a random note they also have the *softest* towels and a super cushy duvet, which I haven't found to be the case much in Europe. One thing to know is that because of their remote location, the wifi doesn't work in most of the rooms, so you'll have to use it in the common areas (which are quite comfy), and I didn't get cell signal either. Wasn't an issue for me but just an FYI if that's an important for your trip. And you need to plan ahead on where to eat for the same reason--it's a bit more remote but worth it!…
We stayed in the' Russian Room' and it was first class. The young couple who run this guesthouse deserve full credit for doing a very professional job . Nice setting, ideal for visiting the Beara Peninsula and Co Kerry. Breakfast is excellent. Home made bread is a must.
What a wonderful place, much more than a normal b&b. Set in beautiful countryside with stunning gardens and views of Bantry bay, this is the ideal spot to rest up if you are exploring beara. We stayed in the Italian room which is large and luxurious. Breakfast was delicious, Can’t recommend enough.
We stayed at Mossies B&B for 4 nights and it was Heavenly. Vanessa and Matti were the perfect hosts the property is stunning inside and out. The Russian room we occupied is a little bit of pure luxury. The welcome we were given was so genuine and we got loads of good advice about where to spend the day. The food at the b&b was so good fresh and tasty we loved the homemade bread. From the fresh flowers set out around the house to the various different places to unwind and relax inside and out were a delight . We would highly recommend a stay at Mossies it’s much much more than a B&B Marie and Des
Had a fabulous stay in Mossies. Such a wonderful setting and Matti & Vanessa were superb hosts. We even got a bonus tour of the house and workshop which is out of this world…luxury on a whole new level! Attention to detail and food was excellent and we couldn’t have been looked after better. Looking forward to our next visit already.
Oh wow how to start a review for Mossies b&b. It is truly a wonderful place to stay. We have been twice & have a third stay booked. The Russian room is our favourite with the lovely balcony and views. The breakfast is delicious with the yummy homemade bread and good strong coffee. Vanessa & Matti are fabulous hosts, so professional, friendly and kind. We love staying at Mossies, it is spotlessly clean, smells fab and the gardens that are so well kept speak for themselves. We really look forward to staying again soon.
Go to Mossie's . It's absolutely terrific. Rare to get such quality. Real quality nothing ersatz. impeccable housekeeping. Vanessa and Matti who run the BB on behalf of the owner are so helpful and knowledgeable and serve one of the most amazing breakfasts. And for someone like me who does not like the so called full Irish breakfast the smashed avocado with poached eggs on toasted homemade sourdough was Heaven. The breakfast was served with such attention to detail it was a wonder to behold - very very stylish Great views, great wildlife in the garden and surrounding small roads were great for walks. Terrific kayaking about a mile away only 15 euros per hour for a single kayak 25 for double kayak. Vanessa and Matti also provide a packed lunch if desired. Excellent Do read the very comprehensive guide in the bedrooms. This is a guide to the facilities and restaurants, things to do in in area. All extremely well researched.…
What a beautiful, peaceful home. Five stars all the way. From the moment we arrived and the warm greeting from Vanessa, to the stunning room and magnificent views of Bantry Bay, what a find! We cannot wait to return. Best hospitality. Lovely breakfast and lovely room. Don't hesitate to book if you want some peace and tranquility. Superb!
