Reviewed 12 August 2011

I have beeb visiting union hall for the last 20 years I cant believe we have only now descovered Shearwater what a delight! We loved all the extra touches from the pot of tea on arrival to the lovely friendly dog.The view is 5 star and the house is spotless.
Nice relaxed athmosphere and nice choices on the breakfast menu to suit everyone.

My wife and I had first stayed at Shearwater 13 years ago and found the whole experience amazing, from the fantastic views to the smoked salmon and scrambled breakfast. 13 years on and now with a family, we recently revisited Shearwater and were not disappointed. The views are still fantastic, and the breakfast offers a nice "Full Irish" as well as pancakes with Maple Syrup and the old favourite Smoked salmon with scrambled egg. All the rooms are very spacious and now come with full en-suites. This is a 4 star B&B and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Room 4 was where the British Ambassador stayed

Lovely two night stay, Adela is helpful and friendly with a lovely manner. Very comfie and liked the extra touches like water in the bedroom, strawberries in the fruit bowl and extra strong coffee. I fell for a book and was given it for my ten year old which was lovely and we are enjoying it Adela. Thanks again.

Myself and my friend stayed here when attending the Cork South West Music festival in Skibeereen. The reason we chose Union Hall was because my friend had passed through there before and was keen to go back. Having now stayed I know why - beautiful spot, fantastic views and Shearwater Guest House has the best of all. Our stay was brief one night - but everyone was very nice. Room was spotless with complimentary bottled water which was very welcome after the excesses of the night before. Deadly breakfast but the most impressive part of all was the lift into skibereen which was offered at the drop of a hat. Couldn't ask for more from this excellent guesthouse - well and beyond the call of Duty.
