Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Carbery Cottage is an especially welcoming West Cork escape, a pretty house wedged cosily into the hillside overlooking the serene and lovely Dunmanus Bay on the Sheep’s Head peninsula. Mike and Julia are two very cultured and informed people, coming from the diverse worlds of the Merchant Navy, and the Theatre. They both left successful careers to open up this very particular and delightful house, where guests parlay easily with each other in an informal and relaxed, bespoke space. Mike’s cooking, for the special dinners he arranges for guests, are memorable events that you really must not miss, and breakfast is a wealth of delicious local goodness, and attentive care. You will leave Carbery Cottage thanking your hosts, and feeling a million dollars, and planning a return trip to the Sheep’s Head as soon as you can manage.
