We recently stayed with Nancy and Tom for 2 nights. The warmth of the welcome by Nancy is just lovely. She makes you feel so comfortable without any fuss. A cup of tea is always offered with a slice of whatever cake she has made is a delight. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have great views over the water....

I recently stayed with Nancy and Tom at their B&B. what an amazing view, comfortable sleeping, incredible hospitality and delicious Irish breakfast. I would never stay anywhere else! And I forgot to mention the afternoon tea and cakes. Added bonus - they own several businesses in town and they know everyone. I am ashamed at how I took advantage of...

We have just spent two wonderful days & nights at Stanley House where Nancy's hospitality was just outstanding. The weather was awful, but the warmth of her greeting, her concern for our welfare & the tea, cake and unbelievable breakfasts made the clouds disappear.

We found Stanley House in 1994 by accident. I have travelled over and stayed there every year since then. The hospitality of this wonderful little guest house has never changed and certainly does not need to be improved. Nancy and Tom make you so welcome and go to great lengths to look after you. I would highly recommend a visit...

Stayed for six nights, every day and night a pleasure. Delicious breakfast. Rooms clean and refreshing. Bed very comfortable. Solarium overlooking Schull Harbor, for a moment of rest and comfort. Nancy should be put in a bottle and taken home, the perfect hostess.

Loved our stay at the Stanley House! Nancy was a wonderful host, always available to answer our many questions, even helped us with our genealogy search! Our room was delightful with many special touches, overlooking the Harbor and the "ruined church" at the end of the lane. The breakfast was the best "Irish Breakfast" we had in Ireland! Nancy facilitated...

It is rare to find a guest house which is impossible to fault. This is certainly one. We have been regulars here for many years and just love the place.

I really enjoyed the time at Stanley House, because of the warm and cosy atmosphere. Nancy is a very lovely person and a good cook as well. I can recommend this B&B and I'm looking forward to my next stay there.
